A new dress

First try
I had plans to make a dress for Apple White, my Ever After High doll, but that did not go as planned. I sat at my workstation and listened to the neighbor’s gardening and felt the scent from the newly mowed grass. I started to measure, cut and sew.

Hellou, this dress is wide!
Embellish with chain stitch
My thoughts wandered and I felt relaxed, I had fun. Then it was time to try this new creation, halfway into the progress, on Apple White. I got myself a good laugh, when I noticed that it was too big for her. I do not know how this happened, I must have measured…well, rather off. I looked at my work, the cute fabric with Disney’s Minnie Mouse on and thought: ”Well, who will this suit?”

Esther!
The back. It is a circle dress, with holes for the neck and arms.

So I put it on her and it was perfect. So, she got a new dress! It is cozy, wide and perfect for those lazy days. And Apple White will be nude for a while....

    1. Poor Apple White, but she is next! She needs something more than just tights and shoes. Haha! :D Gladly she has patience. I have some left of that fabric, hope to a t-shirt or something of it. And stitches like that in a different color can really a nice decoration.

  6. Your little dresses totally inspired me! So, when I saw a Minnie top on sale, I had to make an outfit of my own! :D My sewing is far from perfect, but I want to spend the summer getting better. If at first you don't succeed, try try again! :)

    Your girls are so pretty!! <3

    1. Thanks and lovely to hear that this little dress inspired you! :) Sometimes I go and walk around the sales or children's clothing stores, just to see if they have some cute tops or something else that I can use as a fabric. And Minnie works always! I am so glad for you that you have plans to open a shop and to getting ready for it during the summer. I have "a shop" too, but I will not start anything for a while. And so true, if you don't succeed, try try again. Or as we say here in Sweden: "Shame on him/her for giving in!" :D

  7. Oh how I've missed this post! I saw your photos at Instagram but missed post! I love the fabric and the model of the dress, I love the wide hem, that's most comfortable at summer! ^^ Esther seems to enjoy it more, I'm sure Apple White will find something else to wear. :D
