I love dolls and was so excited when my friend Erin of Avery Lane Sewing asked me to join her Doll Dress Boutique book tour.
If you love making doll clothes, Erin’s books have clear instructions, are beautifully illustrated and filled with lovely inspirational photographs, plus full size patterns.
The Doll Dress Boutique book gives you step by step instructions to make twenty eight complete dress patterns and options to mix and match designs to make over 40 stylish dresses! The book begins with general sewing instructions and is followed by chapters on a variety of dress styles such as sleeveless, party, princess seamed dresses, and many more… oh what fun!
I fell in love with so many projects in this book and had a hard time choosing a dress to make for the hop! Finally, I settled on a squared-neck dress and used some of my Let It Snow fabric to dress Joy for Christmas.
For a little embellishment, I machine embroidered “Joy” from one of my latest collections, centering the design on the bodice front, then followed Erin’s easy instructions to achieve perfect pleats for the skirt, and finished the dress with a little red ribbon.
And this is just the first dress I’ll make for Joy from the book, with so many to choose from, I can’t wait to make a few more of the designs!
So glad you stopped by today!

That is adorable. With all the doll clothes sewing I do, I think I need this book.
Your dress is sooo adorable & really makes me want an embroidery machine! Definitely going to need this E-Book! 😉
Cute dress. I’m making doll clothes for my granddaughter for Christmas. You wouldn’t know who I could contact at Bernina about a problem transferring Designs from Artlink 8 into my Artista 185 would you? I used to have Designer version 4 software in an old laptop that I used to transfer designs, but the laptop died. Now, using my PC I’m getting error messages. I’d appreciate any contact info you could provide me with. I wanted to embroider some Christmas gifts
