Weekend drive-by - Prototype dress for Little Darlings


Not the best photo, but I've made a prototype dress for Dianna Effner Little Darlings.

This will be a sewing pattern, but it will be a couple of weeks yet, before it's in any fit state to publish.  So far I'm loving it, but I need to tweak the pattern a little, and try a slightly different construction method.  I'm not sure about the cummerbund yet and I may make the wiast a little higher.




And below, her wig is a mess!  Sorry sweetheart, you deserve better I know.

New dress for Little Darlings

Here's my inspiration picture...




I've also renamed my little  LD  Bonnie.  I just think it suits her.  :)

As you were.

  1. What a cutie! Love the dress and Bonnie is the perfect name for her! Fab interpretation of the original dress. Would the cummerband work better done in ribbon rather than fabric?

    1. :) Thanks Trish! Hm, yes, I wanted the cummerbund in fabric rather than ribbon - but it would probably work better. I have another idea to try before I resort to ribbon though.

  2. Love it, and I think Bonnie's wig is perfect as it is :)
