And a side order of frills.



I want to put frills on everything in this outfit. I love them.  If it turns out to be a bit too much, I can always split the outfit and make two different looks... which I might have to do anyway. I'm wondering if some of the colours won't look right together, despite using the same shade of dye for all the different pieces of fabric.

The bloomers came next.  I've seen a lot of these in my googling for bohemian style pants, and they were so fun and easy to make. 

These are still damp from styling.  The nice thing about working with crinkle cotton is that you can press it almost flat to cut out the pattern pieces, sew it up, then wet the finished garment and wring it out (carefully.)  The result is that although I cut them deliberately too baggy, the creases in the fabric shrink the garment into a good shape on the doll.




Next I want to figure out the overdress. I have a couple of ideas and may end up making more than one outfit anyway.   I'm torn between a sort of sleeveless coat, a tunic and a shabby pinafore.  I want to make them all so probably will end up doing just that.
