|Skip to my Lou, my darling!|
Not only do I really enjoy sewing for the 16" dolls, but Polly's beautiful, childlike features, simply enchant me and I adore sewing for her. With the completion of her green flower basket dress, I have a perfect sloper for all the other dresses on her Good Housekeeping debut paper doll page.

I tried a couple of different ways to cover the buttons. On one dress, I used a tinier Dotted Swiss, and on the other (the one I kept), I used the same overlay fabric. In essence, this continues to make the dresses one-of-a-kind.

Next? I'm committed to sewing for the Lawton Doll Company 9"ers now. For one, I offered to make an outfit depicting the day Wednesday for a Days of the Week collection that will be a Helper Donation (for the UFDC National summer convention) given with a 9"er offered by Wendy herself. I also have been asked to make a couple of dresses for the 9" Heidi doll. I've been putting this off for far too long, just as I had put off actual sewing, so its time to flex my paws and get busy. Who knows? I may just enjoy it!
Wishing you all a Happy Valentine's Day!
