Hi guys! I am so excited for today’s post! Josefina is one of my absolute favourite historicals, so this year I decided that for my birthday, I should probably have her. It was only fair. 😛
She came with her fiesta camisa, red meet skirt with sash belt, necklace, black shoes, rebozo shawl, Christmas dress, and leather coin pouch. Isn’t she so pretty!!
I was one happy lady on my happy birthday! 🙂 That was back in July.
Well, recently we decided that if we were going to introduce her on the blog, then she definitely needed some new skirts to wear! I broke out the AG original patterns for Josefina’s Pretty Clothes, and found a very nice skirt pattern in there that worked wonderfully to whip up some new, and pretty skirts for our Josie!! 🙂 ❤
I highly recommend the original AG patterns. If you’ve been intimidated by them in the past, don’t be. They are really worth a look. I found them to be quite manageable, and the instructions aren’t too bad. 🙂
I love that I can just change out her skirt, and she gets a brand new look! I could have a whole lot of fun with this! LOL! They really don’t take much fabric to make either. 🙂
The skirts are velcro at the top in the back just like her meet skirt, and they have a fold over waistband. I like that I didn’t have to make an elastic casing, and that the waistband sits flat. ❤ I just used old pillowcases from the thrift store to make these skirts. Pillowcases are awesome for making doll clothes because they are very cheap, and you don’t have a whole bunch of leftover fabric that you don’t know what to do with after. I was also able to make two skirts out of the pillowcase on the left because it had a different pattern throughout.
I love that these skirts are so fast and easy to make. I can just whip one up in twenty minutes, and Josie has a brand new outfit to wear! 🙂 ❤
I’m going to have to make her a new camisa, and another dress the same as her Christmas dress above using the original AG patterns as well. 🙂
JOSEFINA RAMONA MONTOYA!
Now it’s time to get busy busy busy crafting up some fun items for her! 🙂
I hope that you enjoyed!
