Adorable Anna and her matching doll

Our beautiful Anna had a birthday last week!  I made her a birthday dress of course, and then thought that her birthday dolly should have one, too!  Here they are:



I used soft pinwale corduroy with pink cotton trim.  Anna's dress started with  Simplicity pattern # 1949. I just added the little pink ruffles and fabric trim on the sleeves.  Dolly's dress was Simplicity pattern # 2296  with the same changes.   What fun!!

I think dolly's dress might be a little big, but Anna is SO CUTE!!

Wrap Dress

Slowly but surely I am working my way through a stack of fabric earmarked for my wardrobe.  I love sewing my own clothes, but have a hard time finding the time.  Generally I start something for myself and work on it a few minutes here and there until finished.  That can take a long time!!  Yesterday I finished this cute wrap dress:



I love wrap dresses (and they are flattering on almost everyone) so if you're in the market for a new dress you might want to give this pattern a try.  I used  McCalls pattern # 6024 minus all ruffles and I think it turned out great!
