I'm so excited to show off Kit's new dress!
It's a 1930's pattern design from Farmcookies on Etsy, by Kathy. She had kindly sent me a free pattern last year, after I announced on my FB page that I just couldn't seem to get back to sewing for dolls.
Wasn't that sweet of her? I cut the pattern out right away, but lost my nerve.
This was due to the fact I had recently purchased a new Pfaff machine, and I was rather scared of using it. That's quite silly as I've sewn since 1972.
But there you have it.
I bought the fabric at Walmart, and I used vintage buttons, all different, from my mother-in-law's stash.
I think she would be pleased.
I used new trim from Dollarama, purchased for this dress. I think it turned out adorable!
What do you think?
The pattern was easy to sew. I began sewing on Monday, July 17 when I had a sewing bee here with my sister Leona. I finished it on Thursday, July 20.
