1950s Dress

I finished the 1950s dress for Bonnie the BFC doll...
It was a bit fiddly to do, it has proper darts just like you'd get in a human pattern and the skirt was a bit awkward as I didn't really have enough fabric so had to make up my own pattern for it.  But altogether I think it looks adorable.  I got the pattern, inspiration and the tutorial from here .  I think this dress suits this doll, I was going to dress her in quite modern style clothes, now I think she is going to look good in the 1950s style.
Now what shall I make next, I'll check out websites with 1950s fashions and see what I can come up with.

Underwear for BFC Doll

I got the pattern for these from here 

They are a bit more like shorts than undies but under the right style of skirt they will be ok.  These undies were really quick and easy to make so I will be able to make matching ones for each outfit the BFC doll gets.  Probably they would also fit my other 18 inch dolls.
I'm thinking of calling this doll Bonnie, not sure yet though.
