For the Doll Clothes Swap, we each made 2 outfits and sent them to two different people. (not necessarily receiving from the same two people).
I made an outfit for a 16″ “Bitty Baby” (AG) doll and sent it to Susannah (the host of the swap!) My doll is modeling the peach gown and blanket I made.
I hand embroidered a pretty off-white floral design on the chest of the gown and added lace to the hem, sleeves, and blanket edge.
I used ribbon ties to close the back of the dress so it would be adjustable for Jenna’s doll. Hmm, maybe next time I’ll use netting for the ties so she will look like a little pixie!
~~~~~~~~~~and here’s what I got back!~~~~~~~~~~
Christy at Sew Much Fabric, Sew Little Time sent me not one, but TWO 18″ doll outfits and some supplies for making more doll clothes !!!
Pants and shirt, and a dress!
my daughter’s dolls are modeling the clothes.
Doll clothes supplies: fabric, tiny pom-pom trim, ribbon, buttons, elastic, ribbon rosettes, and lace rosettes.
Jenna sent me a knitted top/dress. Imagine all the work that went into knitting this! Since I can’t knit, it was so fun to receive something back that I wouldn’t be able to do myself!
If anybody else out there wants to swap an sewn doll outfit for a knitted one, please leave a comment on this post!
Thanks to Susannah for hosting such a fun swap!
Susannah is hosting another doll clothes swap if anyone would like to sign up to make 2 outfits for 18″ American Girl type dolls. for more info, click on the picture below…
