Rag Doll Dress

My sweet friend gave my girls some rag dolls she found at the thrift store. This lil' doll was in a little red dress that didn't really match. It has bothered me ever since we got the cute dolls (over a year ago). I have been toying with the idea of making my own little rag dolls when I remembered this lil' doll and decided to make her a new dress instead.

Her tights and shoes are sewn on, so it was obvious the red christmasy dress she had on didn't go (sorry, I forgot to take a picture before I ripped it apart to use as my pattern). 
The fluffy white trim was so fun I decided to keep it and add it to this dress. 

I also made a lil flower and sewed it to a bobby pin to stick in her hair.

This costume sateen moved a lot, and could be tricky to work with...BUT because it was just a dress for a doll I wasn't too particular in my accuracy and I melted the edges to keep it from fraying (instead of serging...which is hard to do without a serger). 
It was awesome and saved so much time!
It was a quick project to get my craft fix for the day.

I'm pretty sure the dollie is much, much happier. 
Doesn't she look so?

Have a lil' doll that needs a fashion update?

Craft. Me. This.

Wow you are amazing. I can't believe how many things you are getting done. Does life get easier with 3? We are expecting number 3 in January and my craft productivity is about non-existent. I miss doing them but am just too exhausted. I just need to suck it up and make time for them, right? Anyway, all your stuff is so cute. Keep the projects coming!
