Katie’s First Frock – Spotty Too …

26 Oct

Here is Katie’s first dress. I am very proud of this as I am starting to be able to adapt patterns to suit my own doll.

The basis for this pattern was the cute wee baby dress by Sylvie at Poupees de Syl called Robe de Lola. I used the lace pattern provided, but stopped after just one row of eyelets and decreased the stitches there so that there was a deep frill. The rest of the pattern mostly follows Sylvie’s pattern from then on.

The sleeves were very finicky to sew in but make the dress look really sweet.

I used Patons Fairytale 4 ply in shade 04381 and size 3 knitting needles. The dress fastens at the back with one button.

I thought it would be nice to have some pictures of Jeannie and Katie together in their spotty dresses. They look lovely together.
