I've been on a dolly kick since I've not been able to blog for a while and decided to crochet all my dollies a new dress. Some of them I had for a while, some were gifts and some I purchased inexpensively at crafts supply stores or rummage sales. No matter what the condition of the doll, after being outfitted with a new dress, they all look like a million bucks (in my humble opinion.)
When growing up, I preferred Teddy Bears over dolls, because Teddies were squeezably soft and never poked you in the ribs during the night. I did, however, enjoy my dolls for playing school or having a coffee klatsch. My great aunt was a seamstress and therefore my dolls never lacked in pretty dresses that where custom made just for them from leftover materials.
I hope you will enjoy my crocheted dolly couture:
I love this color combination of white and blue. It reminds me of snow and ice. If you notice, the hat has a big snowflake sewn on top. I gave this dolly to one of my 86 year old neighbors, who couldn't have been happier.
