I thought I'd better quickly make my new girlie a dress this morning as, firstly we were going out for lunch and I wanted to take her with me to show my friend who owns the restaurant. She is another dolly lover, although not a 'collector' and enjoys seeing my dolls. And secondly, if I didn't make something now, I knew the poor girl would be waiting for ages.
A couple of days ago I bought a little girls dress at Primark, the Irish clothing chain who are also here in Spain. Their clothes are not always of the best quality, but their children's clothes are often really cute.....and I guess you get what you pay for. The dress I bought, which is made of a nice blue chambray fabric with 'broiderie anglais' was only five euros and I should be able to get a couple more doll dresses out of it, which is great!
I used part of the dress for the 'skirt' part and I made the simple lined bodice with blue and white gingham. I added four little white buttons to the bodice for added interest.
And I took a couple of photos of her with Ellie, who was my first Little Darling. You can get a much clearer idea of her skin tone in these photos:
And finally, because I just couldn't resist, here are some more of the 'new girl'....who still needs a name, something Spanish I think :)
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and a great week ahead :)
