I’ve had these done for a few days now but haven’t been able to upload them.  My computer had crashed and it was in the shop for repairs.

Both of these dresses are based on real dresses in the Wisconsin Historical Society.  They’re both circa 1865 dresses.

The blue one has a pleated bodice and sleeves.

The floral one has a gathered bodice with pleated sleeves and skirt.

The dolls were chosen for me as a lady I know collects AG dolls and her daughter just got Isabelle.  She wanted Isabelle and Molly to dress up.

Until next time:  time flies...or does it?
