Do you remember some months back when Connie had me make a few American Girl outfits for her granddaughter. In case you missed that post, here they are. I have actually made a few more since then but forgot to take photos.
Friday Connie called to say that she would be over our way for a visit. She asked me if I could whip up something quick for her granddaughters doll.
"Nothing special Carolyn, just something quick and cute."
I didn't exactly say yes. I don't know what happened with that but I wasn't busy anyway and it was early in the day. I didn't feel like sewing so I browsed Ravelry patterns in hopes of finding a quick knit.
I did. The pattern is Fishtail Lace Sundress (Rav link) by Janice Helge. This is an easy peasy and really quick project. I made it in less than a day. The shape of the dress is the same as Janice's design but I did not want the three rows of lace. I wanted an interesting bottom though. Whether it was scalloped or pointed I wanted to put either buttons or bows on the bottom of the dress.
I have no idea what I did with my dolly's shoes.
In my rush I sewed the middle button down a bit lower than it was supposed to be. I started to clip it off but Connie stopped me telling me it was fine. I just didn't look at anymore because it really urked me. She was happy though.
