Well, my friends, it is the end of June. We are now over half way to Christmas! Are you getting ready? Only 177 days to go….Just kidding. I’m still reeling that it’s almost time for the 4th of July. July?!? Didn’t we just have Father’s Day? When did life get so fast?
Sorry for the blabbering. I’ve actually been happily sewing some bright and summery outfits for the Little Darlings. They are so fun to sew for. And they are the cutest models, too! I hope you’ll enjoy what I’ve come up with! And FYI, they are currently listed in my Etsy shop, Matilda Pink.
Just thought I’d add a quick close up of the first Little Darling in my collection. She was painted by Gwen Peard. She is wearing a pink and orange cotton shift dress. It definitely has a mod edge to it. I’d kind of like to make one for me!
The green dot dress has daisy lace with coral colored centers. It coordinates nicely with her friend’s dress, don’t you think?
Okay, so a quick wig change and my little girl with the red bob now has a dark blond ‘do. Anyway, she’s looking very cool in her shorts set that comes with a daisy trimmed hair band.
I made a blue and white sundress, too. The daisy trim is a little smaller on this dress, and I’ve sewn a tiny glass bead in the center of each flower.
Oops! No one is wearing shoes here! Hey, it’s summer! Anyway, a little pair of white sandals would go a long way with these outfits. And did you notice each one comes with a headband?
Another shorts set. With purple flowers!
A dress of roses…And black gingham for her friend!
Here she is modeling the rose dress and headband set. I made the mohair wig ages ago. My beautiful daughter had masses of unruly dark curls like this when she was a little girl. Ah, memories!
The hem of each bias cut skirt flounce is trimmed with the tiniest black ruffles!
And just because I loved the design so much, I made a blue gingham dress and a variation on the dot dresses, too. I hope you like these! Thank you so much for looking!
