|Simplicity A1149, a pattern to make two sun dresses for 18-inch dolls|
I took photos of some of the steps that led to completion of not one but both dresses. (After the first dress was cut out and he discovered there was enough fabric to make the second, he offered to make it. Of course I agreed.)
|The fabric chosen: cotton blend yellow with tiny white circular print for the dress and white/gray/yellow chevron print for the bloomers, scarf, and pocket of dress B (shown on the left of the pattern. The chevron print was not used for dress A).|
Dresses A and B have been cut out in the above photos.
|In about two days, both dresses, minus the snaps, were completed. Yes! He did that!|
|With his portion completed, I sewed the snaps onto both while my little helper looked on.|
|Patience chose to wear the scarf as a headband. I think they both look adorable.|
Why am I referring to the person who made these dresses as "he/him?" Because he asked me not to tell my friends he made them and technically, I have not done that.
Later on, but prior to my writing this post, he asked if I told anyone. I said, "No, but I am." He didn't voice any opposition which gave me the cue to proceed with this post because I am impressed with the end result and I sang his praises, too.
