First doll dress of 2016

I did it!
I sewed a doll dress.
However I made it all by hand. I enjoy sewing by hand a lot.
I used fabric from my stash, which I had bought a long time ago in the early 1990's. I used a small lace at the neck, sleeve edges and hem. I really like how it turned out.
It was easy to make, except the set in sleeves were awful! I hate set in sleeves in something so small. I used a purchased pattern from a seller online:
All Dolled Up
The pattern was very easy to follow and I was pleased with the results.
I will be sewing for Lea again!

So cute! You are very talented. Do you still make doll dresses to sell? I always loved your Chatty Cathy dresses.

Thanks, Anonymous! Yes, I still make doll dresses. I'm working on some now. I will post photos once I have any available. Last year I bought a new Pfaff sewing machine, but then travel intervened so I didn't sew much at all. I hope to remedy that this year.
