Description

This is a little Victorian inspired Christmas dress set that I made for one of my dolls (she’s 11 inches tall). It has tiny pintucks and lace insertion and touches of hand embroidery. I enjoy designing and making doll clothes because it requires so little in the way of materials and trims, but yet the sky is the limit for the design. It’s also a nice way of trying out techniques in a smaller scale.

Material Notes

Dress is made of 100% fine cotton handkerchief linen….cloak is babywale cranberry corduroy…..and the hat is actually a repurposed earmuff cover from my “real people” earmuffs!

    Vow. This is very impressive. Tiny details, embroidery… Takes time, I suppose, but the final result is, as we can see, satisfying. Also, kudos for the photos, too!
