27 Dresses

Okay, I can't quit with the movie titles.  Here are actually only ten dresses--for the wedding dolls.  I've gotten them all finished, and two more for the Etsy shop while I was cutting out dolls.  Working on them while I worked on the others helped alleviate the repetitive monotony.  Painting faces and creating hair is fun--they're all different.  But nine of the same dress can drag a bit.

Anyway, here are the wee dollies in white.

Dresses are made of white linen, w/ cotton eyelet trim, w/ purple satin sashes and a little crocheted flower w/ a button sewn on for decoration.  Their hair is all different colors and textures of yarn, bodies made of cotton muslin and painted.





This was fun-16th century style dress in 20th century colors and prints.

I can't tell if this is a clown suit or a PJ's Onesie, but she seems to like it well enough.

  5. The dolls are all just adorable! You did a beautiful job on the dresses. Wish I could be a fly on the wall and watch the girls with their new little companions. (You must be bone-tired!)

  7. They're a little bit Columbian and Babyland Rag in their look. Great job! I love the red-headed one particularly.

  9. The little dolls are really cute. I know that doing multiples of the almost same thing does get a little weary, but you would never know it to see these little dolls. I imagine the girls will be very happy and excited.

  10. I nearly let this post get by without commenting and I couldn't let that happen. Jan, these little dolls are wonderful and will be a hit. I hate making duplicats or multiples of anything but these little sweeties are different enough that each one has a distinct personality. Great job!

  11. Wow, what a gorgeous collection of little dolls and what a brilliant idea for bridesmaids gifts. Even with the same dress, each face has so much individual personality. I really hope you get a photo of the dolls being carried during the wedding!
