Also, the shell was sewn and embroidered with a wee anchor. I will admit that I had a ball making this one. Not only do I love sailor dresses on dolls, but some of this is getting alot easier to do. For instance, the front plackets and pleats. And, with the omission of those silly, huge patterns to fuss with, designing these dresses is far more creative and up to the skills I've developed in the past.

I have discovered one thing that I'll make certain not to repeat. Each time I've gone to hem the dress, I find I don't have enough length to make a deep hem. I'd have to literally cut the skirt hem to her ankles in order to have a good one inch to one and a half inch hem. I keep creating these dresses as if sewing for a small child.
