Peppermint Snow Pattern from Eden Ava Couture

Peppermint Snow Pattern from Eden Ava Couture

One of my New Years resolutions is to use up my fabric scraps. That means lots of doll sewing! This outfit came completely from the scrap bin. I think it’s my favorite doll outfit ever, and it was absolutely free to make. (Picture my happy dance!)

I started with the Peppermint Snow  pattern from Eden Ava Couture. It’s my second time using it. I love how quick and easy it is, and how versatile. (The first time I made it as a tee.) I wanted this pattern as soon as I saw the little turtleneck; there aren’t any other patterns like it.

 

 

The lavender fabric is a lightweight jersey knit from an old tank top. I should’ve used a little seam tape in back where the Velcro goes- I forgot how much this type of fabric stretches! So yeah, I stretched the back out a little when I sewed the Velcro in, and I had to shorten the dress up a bit to make up for it. If anybody asks, I’ll just say my doll had a sudden growth spurt…

 

 

The Peppermint Snow pattern also includes tights, a beret, and fur wrap. I’m dying to make the little hat and wrap! I’ve used other pantyhose patterns before, and as always Eden Ava Couture has hit the mark on fit. If any of you are sewing ballet clothing for the new GOTY doll, these tights won’t give you the baggy crotch and wrinkling in the legs.

The tights are designed for a 2 way stretch knit; but I wanted to use this stretch lace leftover from my Gatsby Dress. Since it’s not a 2 way stretch, I cut the footies out. I wanted my stretch to be in the width of the doll, and I (correctly) assumed I’d need a little wiggle room for length. I used a bitty rolled hem to serge the sides and bottom.
