Ginny Doll Maid's Dress

This is perfect for Christmas time as I made it for one of my sisters as a gift. The aprons and mob cap are my own patterns, but the dress pattern is from the McCall company or Simplicity (I can't remember which). Kind of reminds me of Mary Poppins . . .
I also made the carpet bag and accessories (a feather duster, mini towels, and a rug beater)!

While every girl needs a little black dress, I think every girl who needs to add class to her wardrobe should own a scarf. I don't mean those fleece scarfs you wear when you go sledding, though they have their place, I mean scarfs that complete the basic, classy outfit. And nothing speaks nautical like a red chiffon scarf (yes, I made it - why else would it be on my blog?) to accent a navy blue jacket and white denim pants.

1940s Dressing Gown

I made this for my older sister a while ago as she asked me for a bathrobe. Bathrobe? That's too boring, so I upgraded to a retro dressing gown instead (essentially a fancy bathrobe). I found the tan satin for a great deal, and I had just barley enough scrap lace for the contrast! I used the Butterick 5152 pattern and had my younger sister (my artist buddy,) do the fashion sketch.

Gidget Pajamas

This is an adorable little pajama set I made for my sister. It is a tradition in my family to get pajamas the night before someone's birthday - and I was quickly disappointed with the selection available at the stores.

So, I decided to take over.

Retro Dress

Doll Clothes

A cute duo I made up for neighbor. My favorite part is the bloomers!

Blessing Dress

Isn't she precious? I was asked to make this blessing dress for her. The design is simple and has a little bit of flower trim and a couple of bows. The bottom of the dress (too long for these pictures) has a beautiful eyelet design.

Red Top

This was a fun little top I made. The original design I drew had straps, but I decided to skip it. Here my sister models it for Valentines Day.
