A few months ago a customer asked me to send some dress scraps to Debra at Apple Tree House so that her daughter’s doll could arrive with a matching outfit. Since then it’s been in the back of my mind to make some matching doll clothes to a few dresses. I’m wondering how much more work can I possibly create for myself: Boo has to match me, I have to match Boo, now we both have to match the doll?!
I remember begging my mother to buy me nightgowns at Richway when I was little that came with an identical doll-sized versions for my Cabbage Patch Kid doll…..it was a big deal. I LOVE the little perfect miniature creations that Melanie makes for her Melamoose Co Etsy store (they sell out immediately) and we’ve been talking about a collaboration. I decided to test it out with a twirl skirt and top. This is Abby….she’s a 15″ Pottery Barn doll:
Here is a photo of the new owner of the twirl skirt: Haven. She is a 15″ Bamboletta doll. SO cute! Thanks for the photo Carli!
I made a cute matching set featuring my ladybug silk screen…..and Boo confiscated it immediately. She could care less about dolls and doll clothes UNLESS they are perfect little clones….then she’ll spend all day with them! Here she is begging me not to sell it…..she rarely asks for anything, so of course I caved. She’s worn it everyday this week!
We are waiting on our 10″ doll from Apple Tree House to size clothing for smaller dolls!
Changing the subject….I finally started incorporating my new LBB Signature Print into some dresses. I’ve narrowed it down to three favorites for the name (to win the summer scarf)…..which do you like the best?
1. Easy as Pi
3. Batik Geek
Flashback: Last summer I launched my Halter Dress Pattern. I was looking through my photos and just loved these. Had to share. Boo looks so young and her hair is so short! If you are looking for an easy beginner pattern for some summer dresses, this one is perfect.
