It walks like a dress, it talks like a dress, it must be a dress!
It's all straight line sewing, so it was super easy. It really is a curtain with a ruffle at the top , sewn into a tube and hemmed. You put some elastic in the casing where the curtain rod would go and add some straps. The tutorial had the width of the body of the dress at 36", I tried it on her at 30", and took off 6 more inches before being happy with it. There was just too much bunching under her arms and I think it was bothering her.
It falls at her knee, and I wish I had made it a little longer so she can grow with it, and there's not much hem to let out, either. But Andrea can always wear it ; )
It's a lot easier to get the doll to model, than an active 2 year old!
The doll's dress was a quick 20 minute project and I'm so glad I did it!
I made this dress for her to wear at her birthday party, but I'm really wanting her to wear it to church ASAP...we'll see if I can hold off! I think there's one in Andrea's future!
