Another Doll Dress

First things first, the winner of my review copy of Garter Stitch Revival is Lisa O., who has been emailed. Thanks to everyone who left a comment. I’ve got a couple more books in the queue to review, so check back for more giveaways soon.

Here is today’s doll dress:

I still need to sew decorative buttons on the bodice, but other than that, this is done.

And here is the left side front of Aspen:

I need to start paying attention because I’m going to need to place a pocket soon.

And here is the little prince:

Back on his little sofa. I promise you that he has moved since the last photo!

    Gorgeous dress, Wendy, and look at Loki!

  2. That is the most adorable Loki pose!

  3. Shirley Gallagher says:

    I love the newest doll dress, but oh my, Loki is so precious!

  4. I love the doll dresses — takes one back to true childhood fun! I have a question. I seem to remember that you frequently use a steamer for blocking your hand knits. Is this correct? If so, which one do you use? I’m in the market & looking around before I purchase . . .

  5. Marietta, I steam hand kits with a steam iron.

  6. That doll dress is absolutely precious. It makes my fingers itch to cut out some fabric asap!

  7. Are you using patterns for the doll dresses or just winging it? They are gorgeous. And so is Loki.

  8. My current life goal is to learn to sleep like Loki, as if my creaky ol’ bod was liquid and looked adorable sprawled any old way!
    I’ve never been much of a seamstress, but the little dresses are making my fingers itch to try them. They are almost as tempting as the clothing from Little Cotton Rabbits.
