New dresses for the ladies

Well, looking back at the pennies I spent on new dresses over the Christmas period I had a shock.  Some of the tiny, yes tiny, dresses were quite expensive and not all of them were worth the money.

I decided on impulse to make my own… so I ordered a selection of lycra type fabrics for ease:  its stretchy and doesn’t need to be hemmed (usually).

I quickly drew a pattern (just traced around the doll, and added a bit…), then cut the fabric varying it a little for each dress.  I then hand sewed nineteen dresses in three days – some turned out okay and others could have been better 🙂
