Little ducks in lemon for Sasha.....

My friend Lene in Denmark, kindly sent me a present this week which included some sweet cotton fabric for me to make something for my dolls.  Because the fabric has cute little lemon coloured ducklings on it, I thought it would be the perfect fabric to use to make a summer dress for Milly, my blond 1971 Sasha. 

I teamed the duck fabric with some yellow and white gingham and using the 'classic' smock pattern by Simply Grace Designs, I made Milly a dress and tap shorts.  The shorts are made completely in the gingham fabric but can't be seen in the photos.  I made a pair of lemon knit socks to go with it....and added a lemon chiffon ribbon to her hair.

    1. Thanks so much Ronny. I made the socks to go with the outfit and the shoes are from Boneka....her sandals wouldn't fit on with the socks, the fabric was too thick....and I wanted her to wear the socks.

  5. A perfectly charming Spring picture.
    I'm very fond of two different fabrics being used together in one outfit and, as you know, love the addition of 'coloured' socks.

    1. Thank you very much Kendal. I love the two (or more) toning fabrics too, just gives a bit of variety. Yes, I agree on coloured socks too!!
