Description

Not wishing to have to discard an old angora sweater, I decided to upcycle it into a stylish doll outfit. I made a couple fashion accessories to complete the look….a pill box hat and micro chamois wrap and just in case I wanted another look, I also made a beret. The applique on the front was recycled from another outfit and then hand beaded. I only wish I looked this good in a sweater dress! LOL!

Material Notes

Dress made from an old angora sweater and fashion accessories made from micro chamois (the wrap is lined in satin).

      Thank you, m.j.elgin. The dolls are about 24 inches tall, so they are much easier to sew for than Barbie…..LOL!
