just recently finished a beautiful violet birthday dress for our neighbor across the hall. above is the dress that was requested... not sure where it's from... and below, the dress i made.
i used simplicity pattern 3511 for the sleeves and the top front and back. then, i drafted a shirred circle skirt pattern since the 3511 skirt was really pretty flat. the fabric is a two toned dupioni silk. i gathered red and violet tulle for the ruffle...
i also made a matching dress for her bitty twin doll. still waiting for pics of them together. if i get one, i'll update this post... :)
hope you're having a relaxing sunday. thanks for coming by and reading!
