The weather has conspired against me for the past two and a half weeks. For two and a half weeks, I’ve been saying that I’d get pictures on the next nice day. And that next nice day has really not come yet. For two and a half weeks, we’ve had rain, then snow, then melting snow, then rain, then snow again, then rain, and more rain.
So my precious dolls have been kept safe inside, which means I have yet to get pictures of my doll clothes which will soon be for sale on my Etsy shop. It is currently inactive, but it will be called HomesteadNotions.
However…I do have a preview of the doll outfits! Minus the little items to go with the dresses, this is what I’ve been doing in my free time for the past couple of weeks!
The patterns are from Simplicity, American Girl, and Heritage Doll Fashions. The two Regency dresses were made from the same pattern, which I tweaked a bit for the plaid one, to give it a gathered bodice and short sleeves. The two Colonial dresses were made from another pattern, which I tweaked in both to have growth stripes in the skirt; I also added pin tucks to the bodice of the brown dress.
I didn’t realize how much I missed sewing until I started doing it again!
