New dress…

Another busy week so I haven’t done much but the other evening I thought I’d make a little dress 1/1250 scale, in a 1920’s style.

I used a thin felt fabric – no fraying so no need to hem all the edges!
I cut the basic shape using a tutorial by Mary Williams Dollshouse Dolls 

P1060468I’ve been so lucky and have been gifted lots of bits and bobs lately. This elasticated blue lace was in one of the bags and I thought would suit this project.


Checking the length


hand stitched down the sides and turned


sewing on a row of lace


adding another row


all done, pearl stick on gems at neckline

I have hand-sewn as it’s so small, I do need to make a whole wardrobe for this doll so may be using a sewing machine sometime.

She seems quite happy! 1

Thanks for reading,
back next week, love Rosie
