My sister wisely suggested a $5 limit on gifts for nieces and nephews this Christmas. You know, it's really hard to find something that befits my status as Favorite Aunt for $5 at the store.

Wait! I'm crafty! My niece is two, and she has a doll she loves! Sweeeet! This stashbuster cost me nothing.

I didn't have a pattern -- or the doll. (It's in New York and I'm in Minneapolis.) My mom in South Dakota, though, has the same kind of doll at her house, so she sent me the measurements and I made a cardboard dressform. I sent the dress down for my mom to try on her doll, and it fit! Phew!

Now if only my nephews played with dolls ...

Thanks for looking!

Inspiration without application is moot.

The baby doll looks so much warmer now.

And kudos for making the dress to fit without having the doll to measure by!

Thank you! The niece really liked it (because it's pink and because she's 2).
