Summer Dress

After a lot of fiddling about I've managed to come up with a pattern that fits my Les Cheries doll.  I wanted to make a dress with sleeves but not being able to draft my own patterns I had to alter two dress patterns for a different sized doll.  The Les Cheries dolls are tall and slim and their bodies have a completely different shape to my Gotz Just Like Me doll.  Anyway, I managed it and it turned out just right.....
The sleeves are slightly gathered with elastic.  I had to stitch through each end of the elastic just short of the underarm seams, then I zig-zagged over the elastic, stretching it to fit.


  1. Very pretty and summery looking. Now Lorraine's going to want one!

  2. An adorable dress and doll...and the plants look pretty good too!
