Hi guys!! Welcome back to another segment of SEW DOLLY!
Today, I wanted to showcase some of the adorable Easter dresses that we made last week, as well as some beautiful hats that my mom made up to match for the dolls!
Let’s get started! First up, are the Disney Animator dresses!
My mom made these ones. I found the pattern for her on Etsy. This pattern has a few variations, but we are loving the look as well as the simplicity of the crocheted bodice combined with the fabric skirt. The hats are super cute too! 🙂
After working with this pattern, my mom went ahead, and adjusted it a bit to fit the 18 inch dolls too.
I thought that these dresses would make perfect Easter gifts for each of the girls, so my mom and I decided that she would make up the bodices, while I would sew on the fabric skirts.
Voila! We threaded some matching ribbon around the neckline, and added a bow. So adorable, but I felt like they were missing something. I headed over to PixieFaire, and found a pattern for the most darling little crocheted cloche hats that I’d ever seen.
My mom whipped them up in no time (didn’t I say she was an expert?), and I added the ribbons and the flowers! These are perfect little Easter hats, don’t you think? So cute!! The girls were so excited to receive them. 🙂
I apologize for the lighting on these pictures. I had to take them after hours while the Little Miss was asleep, so as not to ruin the surprise.
Three Spring dresses for three special little girlies, but something was still missing!
Dolly Easter baskets and chocolate bunnies! I made these sweet little Easter baskets using some little paper buckets that I found at Michael’s.
I hot glued a piece of cord in place as a handle.
Then I filled them with cotton and Easter grass, as well as bunnies, eggs, and little chicks.
I hot glued everything in place. 🙂
To make the chocolate bunny, I used the mold from Kit’s chocolate bunny making set.
I just filled it with model magic.
Then I painted them chocolate brown, and varnished them to make them shiny.
I found the template for the Easter box at Bakerella. It’s too cute! I just sized it to fit. I glued plastic packaging to the front window of the box.
The Easter outfits were a hit!
And the mini chocolate bunnies were definitely a favourite.
I packed them up in some leftover Our Generation boxes so I could wrap everything together like a set.
Next, I tackled an outfit for the mini dolls. Our minis have quite a few little dresses, but my niece’s dolls were lacking in the clothing department, so I made up a cute top, along with some pants for them to wear.
Do not let the mini size of these clothes fool you! Sewing for the minis is tricky! It took me as long to sew this outfit as it would for a full sized doll, but I think that it was worth it.
I used the Mini Play Clothes pattern from PixieFaire to make these. The fit is very good for the minis.
I added some mini lace around the neckline. 🙂
My mom crocheted a bunch of mini skirts and tops as well as some dresses for the mini dolls using ABC Knitting’s pattern
Aww, mini dresses always make me smile. 🙂
Last, but not least on this segment of SEW DOLLY! I made this pretty dress.
I am adoring the OhSewKat! Sugar&Spice pattern from PixieFaire. It’s so easy to make, and the results are very professional. I also fell in love with this fabric when I saw it. Since it was going for $5/yard, I just couldn’t pass it up.
I like to buy up the discount fabrics. There are always a ton of cute ones for $5/yard at our local fabric shop, and I can make three doll dresses from one yard. 🙂 Three doll dresses = three little girly’s in my life. Well, that’s pretty much perfect, if you ask me. ❤
I hope you enjoyed this segment of SEW DOLLY! See you all again soon! 🙂
