Attention to Tiny Details...My Hat Renditions

Today I ventured out of my usual seamstress ways and made some little doll clothes. When I say little I mean tiny! My customer wanted me to come up with creative cute dresses for these dolls and they are 6" tall. I didn't think I would be able to sew something that little but, when I got to it, it actually turned out really cute! Now I only have 2 other dolls to go in this size and then a couple of Cabbage Patch dolls.

  Here's a picture of my hat renditions after seeing them on Make it Love it.

I also just finished up a new summer dress! I also added in some small detailing on this dress. Right above the hem I added 3 pintucks and then put ric rac under each layer. It adds dimension to the dress. This dress has a shirred back and sleeves so it is easy to get on and off a little girl. When you sew little girls dresses I think little added details make all the difference!

  1. i love the hats! perfect for cooler spring days, but not wintery looking

  2. I have sewn for over 30 years and specialize in doll clothes and I think you have done a wonderful job - congratulations! If you need any Cabbage Patch Doll Clothes Patterns for the 18 1/2 inch size doll, I'm sure I can help.

  3. Very darling dress and love your hats!

  4. Very cute, but you may want to spell "Attention" correctly. :-)
