I’m so excited to tell you about my friend Erin Hentzel‘s wonderful new book, Doll Days!
It’s a fabulous book about vintage inspired doll clothes with a modern flair. The book is filled with gorgeous photographs, easy to follow instructions, and loads of inspiration for making beautiful outfits for 18″ dolls, plus suggestions for modifying or adding embellishments.
I started sewing doll clothes at the age of four and felt like a kid again making a dress for my American Doll. I used a favorite print from my Sunday Ride fabric collection with Benartex, added a little touch of aqua, and trimmed it with little flowers.
I really enjoyed making this quick project and can’t wait to make the little shorts, shirts, and the cutest sun dress in the book!
How about you, have you ever sewn doll clothes? Would you like to make some of Erin’s cute dresses? C&T is giving away a copy of Doll Days! (eBook for international winners) And how about sewing the little outfits with some of my fabric?
