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.

I love the sides of Curley's dress, so beautiful! I especially love the capelets and hats though! They look so amazing and vintage, but modern and stunning at the same time! Definately hitting this rocks!

So amazing just like all the other incredible outfits you make! This however, has every mom envious... even those Hollywood mommies!  Stunning and they both look so beautiful.

Ya just can't stop a crafty girl!

Both outfits are adorable!  They coordinate so well.  I can't decide which one I like more...
