I just finished Curly's outfit the night before Easter! I started her dress way back in January and then it got put off for other projects. It wasn't until I made Blondie's Easter outfit that I knew I wanted to finish the other dress and make a coordinating hat, capelet and purse for it too. I took about 400 pics yesterday!

Here they are!






Curly's dress


Close up of side detail:


I pintucked the sides using a pretty stitch in pink. The tucks released at waist level to give the dress bottom fullness. I used the same decorative stitch in pink on the hem and on the hat, capelet, and purse. I love how it all turned out!!

One more of Blondie


C & C always appreciated!
Thanks for looking!

Those are gorgeous, and so well made!  Doesn't it feel great knowing that you won't see any other little girls hunting for eggs in the same dresses as your little dolls?

i don't normally post about clothes as I don't know anything about 'em  but i couldn't stop my self from saying something on this topic- that is a ridiculous amount of cuteness!!  I love your vintage inspired handiwork so much  Grin everything looks so perfect.  i especially like that they are coordinated with out being super matchy-match.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

TeenyBunny I always love your work! These outfits are superb!!!!! The cloches and capes are tres chic, but the structure on Curly's dress is just amazing!! I also love how if you put either of the twins in the very same outfit you get two totally different looks. They so adorable!

I'm curious about your work, I know you make most things yourself, is this the case with the cape and cloches? I currently have a fleecy cape cut from a 1970's pattern for my angel for winter, but your cape looks great for spring/summer evenings. The cloche.. well, I'm just partial to the style. I doubt my kiddo would ever wear it. 7yr olds are so picky!

Ridiculous amount of cuteness is a correct name for this thread. Your daughters and the dresses you made for them are beyond cute! I am totally stealing that pintucking idea for a dress for my dd. Good job!

I doubt my kiddo would ever wear it. 7yr olds are so picky!

I designed everything from scratch. The hats have been a work in progress to get the fit, but I finally cracked it and Curly's hat came out perfectly! The capes, I started with a wide rectangle and shaped the fronts into a curve. I gathered the middle of the back, but after I put all the binding on it was too wide so I added an inverted pleat to the center back and now it fits well.

The pintucked dress started as a rectangle of fabric. The tucks are about an inch deep. I ironed them toward the center and sewed the decorative stitch super close to the edge to hold them down.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
