I made this dress from the Lisianthus Dress pattern on Pixie Faire. I had seen this dress on many dolls on Etsy and blogs, and liked it. This pattern was the first thing I bought with the Pixie Faire gift card I received for Christmas! The pattern is great, and the dress turned out very well.
I didn’t do the dress exactly the way as stated in the pattern. I lengthened the back pattern pieces so the dress would have the ability to have a Velcro closure, rather than a zipper. The skirt isn’t quite as ruffly in my version, due to the fact that my fabric wasn’t 37″ wide as needed in the pattern piece. I did the sleeves slightly different. I used the same pattern pieces, but left it out and pressed the “sleeves”. Originally, this was supposed to be sewn in. This does leave me with a raw edge. Oh well. My doll will wear this for Easter!
The necklace and bracelet I made with elastic cord and beads. I had already made the necklace a few months ago, and made the bracelet to match when I made the dress. The headband is a girl’s hairtye, but it has been stretched through normal wear to go perfect around the doll’s head. She is wearing stick-on nail decals in the shape of pink cupcakes for earrings.
With that, I have an announcement to make. I am opening an Etsy shop within the next month! I am very excited to share my doll clothes and accessories with others. More details coming soon!
