Description

This is a little outfit I made of very vintage cotton organdy in pale pink with hand smocking on the bodice. The doll is around 10 inches in height, so the smocking is VERY small. Of course, what would a little doll’s dress be without some bloomers as well? It gave me an opportunity to use some of my smaller pieces of vintage entredeux.

Material Notes

vintage cotton organdy, cotton batiste, vintage cotton entredeux, silk ribbon

Difficulty

Intermediate

    Tiny sewing is difficult enough, then you complete the project with amazing photographs.

    Oh my, this is absolutely precious. Talk about details, look at the doll’s braid! Love every single thing about it. I want one of those dolls, they are to die for.
