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.
