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!
