ahhh, (semi) instant gratification

I have a feeling that doll’s clothes are going to be my new scratch-that-making-itch sewing project. Lucy is going to a birthday party tomorrow for a fellow American Girl doll addict, so I thought it would be nice to make a dress using the pattern that I bought at Market last October. I even broke into the DS stash for some Shelburne Falls.

(Speaking of the DS stash, I refolded it all the other day and discovered that I have even more than I thought. Don’t know how that happened.)

I am *almost* ashamed

It’s so much fun making clothes without having to worry about the fit, the possibility of itchy seams or having to sew a zip. As far as I am concerned, all dresses should do up at the back with velcro (other hook-and-loop fastenings are available). Never mind the whole hospital gown vibe – easy on and off is the way to go.

Of course, as soon as she saw it Lucy asked me to make one for her doll. I can’t say I blame her – Scarlet does look marvellous, don’t you think?
