It's All In The Details...


I am so happy to show you this outfit.  I finished it just now...and I am so pleased that it turned out just as I had pictured it in my head.  This is my first creation...well, not really my creation.  The pattern was given in the book, "Making Waldorf Dolls"...and I added to it.  To suit my need for more...to satisfy my creative brain...to find what works for me...my style.  To fill in the details.

A simple top with raglan sleeves...modified to have a neckline edge with a bias strip...tucks rather than elastic around the neckline.  Tucks on the sleeves...top-stitched for more detail...a double line of sewing on the hem.  Pants shortened to be pantaloons with elastic around the leg edges...with the same tucks...and the same top-stitching.  All seams serged by Serger Sue.






I know it is soon to be winter, but I had this fabric that I wanted to use for Aubrey (and Aubrey was her name). 

And, the distraction I mentioned in this morning's post?  This hat...



Isn't it fun??  It is not quite done, though.  I need to weave in a few ends and make the tie for the other side.  It is a pattern by Fabs at Fig and Me.  Future hats will be a bit larger.  If Aubrey had a big head of hair as so many of the Waldorf dolls seem to, this hat would not fit.     

And, that's all I have for today.  Tomorrow is my day to do some sewing on Christmas gifts.




"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11

Hi Jacque, I love this outfit! I have a family friend who makes Waldorf dolls and sells them-she has quite the business and sells new dolls the same day she advertises them on FB. They are very sweet. You've got me motivated-I've got to make some American Doll clothes for my granddaughters-8 of them, for Christmas and I haven't been in the mood but now I am. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs, Noreen

What a lovely little outfit but I love that hat. I think because it looks like what a little fairy girl would wear in the forest. I love that color of green too.
I love seeing what you are making. It looks like you are having fun too.
