Something-from-Nothing Doll Dress
Felicity, my $1.00 yard sale doll, wears her new something-from-nothing dress. It's made from pieces in my 'doll clothes' fabric stash, where I tuck away bits that seem to lend themselves to dolls. The satin underdress and tulle are from my daughter's wedding dress, and the tiny bit of silver net and piece of sparkly tulle have been in the stash for years. I'm forced to admit I had to spend $1.50 for the silver trim, as nothing I had seemed to work. The pattern is from 'Sew the Storybook Wardrobe for 18" Dolls', by Joan Hinds, which I checked out from the public library--one of my favorite places!
