is for my great-niece. I am certain she won't be offended it came solate. She is a blue eyed blonde like the dolly. As soon as I finish outthe current projects (fakey Chanel, prom dress, etc.) I'm starting onanother dolly for her for This Christmas!! lol The plan is to do her ashelf dolly every year till she gets sick of them. ;) I think it's a lawthat every Southern little girl has to have a dolly collection.
oh, construction details... The dolly came from a discount place and was
horribly dressed to begin with. Cut apart her AWFUL dress and used it for
a pattern. Added details here and there till it looked like how I
wanted. ;) I made tubes from bias cut from the two pink satins. Then
used those to roll the roses. The built in crinoline (didn't want to post
indecent pics so I didn't take any of that) is a two toned pink tulle. And
her bloomers are pale pink satin with lace at the hems. Did the embroidery
on my embroidery machine. ;) So basically, I embellished the dress every
way I could think of. ;)
And if the pinks look familiar, they are left overs from the costumes I did
last Fall for school. I always save satin bits because you never know when
you might need to dress a dolly. ;)

Super plan. I am already asking my older DD to select a holiday pin for next year, she collects them.
Where are the rhinestones? And sequins... ;->
Very pretty, your G-N is a very lucky girl!

Didn't have any on hand. ;) I did put some clear beads with the embroidery to give it a little sparkle. I'll make sure I have sequins for the next one. ;)
Thanks! Sharon

Gorgeous Sharon! She will be thrilled. And she even is laced up the back! I like the pink satin: it looks very much like the pink satin I have left over from "Suessical". Must be mandatory for stage productions.
Let us know what she says when she gets it.
