I was kicking this idea around late last night and made it happen today.  I need to make a Hallowe'en one so I have an idea but need to work on it.

I made a new OOAK calico and green doll dress.
It's in the 1850's style but it could also work for early 1860's fashion.  The skirt is very gathered so you could easily have a petticoat or hoops underneath the skirt.

The green ribbon is edged in gold ribbon to help give it a little sparkle.

It's available in my Etsy shop here.

I made two new doll dresses.

I think I’ll have one of the yellow ones be a dress that Maragret Ann Brady wears in the “Dear America” series.  In the book she has a yellow dress and I like the nautical theme of the pattern.
I kind of want to make the pink one in blue to match Nellie’s eyes.

Both dresses are available in my Etsy shop here:

I’m also supposed to be getting some orange silk in the mail today.  I ordered some so I can make a new dress for Addy.  I think she could look quite nice in the orange.  Hopefully I have the right color thread.  I avoided buying a spool of thread because monitor settings can be different from reality so it’s always better to have the fabric in my hands so I can get some thread.
