Embroidered Denim Doll Dress
I’m so flattered you came over to see my embroidered denim doll dress! When I made this dress, I was just learning how to use my new sewing machine. It has some decorative stitches, and for my ego’s sake we’re going to call it embroidery.
I’m dying for an embroidery machine now, but I’ll have to wait for the new house. Hubby is going to build me an amazing sewing room. He has plans inspired by the Apple store. The thought of it makes my toes curl! But I’m all over the place. You came to see my embroidered denim doll dress, right?
This is my second outfit for the American Girl Doll & Wardrobe Giveaway. The winner gets a brand new American Girl doll, and the muther-load of Valentine outfits and accessories that my friends and I have made. You can see them all at the Valentine Outfit & Accessory Roundup. I’m dying over the talent of this seasons designers.
My dress features pink piping at the waist. I used decorative stitches to embroiderer the hem & neckline. The dress pattern is self drafted using the same blocks as my Leopard And Lace dress.
Here’s a close up of the stitches. They look like asterisks to me.
The back of the dress has a Velcro closure for easy wardrobe changes.
I’ve got more doll sewing projects coming up, & if I can ever get them photographed I’ll show you. It’s so quick and easy to sew for dolls. Plus, it’s a great way to practice features on your sewing machine! Which reminds me, I have a one step buttonhole I need to try out. Do you have features on your machine that you haven’t learned yet?
Until next time,
