Rosyln Doll and Dress

Added Feb 23, 2011

I made a doll for my sister for Christmas. I modeled the doll after a doll I had made when I was little. And the dress, I designed from vintage inspirations from the 40s and 50s. For the fabric, I used an old skirt that no longer fit and it’s lining along with some trim my mother had in her sewing things. In the back there are several buttons. It was my first time I made button holes, and I had to remake each one at least once! I was so worried I would ruin the fabric. But after much work, it came out perfectly. I would give the pattern for this, but I had troubles with it, so unless I fixed the pattern all up, the pattern would be hard to follow! :/ Sorry.

Material Notes

Lightweight cotton, White trimming, embroidery thread, yarn




Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Classic, Romantic, Victorian, Vintage
