Reversible shift dress for my daughter. Denim one side and printed cotton drill the other. I appliqued the dolls to the front with machine satin stitch and hand emroidered their faces.

      Thanks, I made up the design for the dolls from a set of matryoshka doll measuring cups my sister gave me for Mothers day. It was a fun dress to make and each dolly seems to have her own “personality” beacuse of their hand stitched faces.

      White ones? I love them too. I noticed on your page you have a Elna 2130 – so do I! I also have a Bernina but not a serger just a vinatge sewing machine. I have made all my projects on the Elna so far.
