Skipper Sun Dress

Skipper's Sun Dress was another pattern from Annie's Attic Fashion Doll Little Sister, pattern book number 87D22. This is my favorite of Skipper's dresses so far. I love the way the skirt hangs and I learned some new techniques for constructing a dress. I pulled the skirt out several times before finishing the outfit, but I now understand how it is made and I am thinking of trying a Barbie dress using the same pattern and just adding more stitches. While the party dress used fingering yarn, this dress was made using sports yarn, a cheaper alternative considering the amount of outfits I have been making.

I am working hard to finish my Valentine's package that needed to be mailed, yesterday. I have one bear almost finished. One part of the bear is not cooperating. I am trying to make a second one, but do not know if there will be time. I still have one finger puppet to go and then the package has to be mailed, as is or it will be there by St. Patrick's Day.

Another pretty piece of work. I love the pink!

Love it! Your pposts take me back to when I was a little girl playing with my barbies.

I agree with Mia! Good thing is I have a 6yr old to use as my excuse for playing!

I wish I could use my daughter as an excuse. Unfortunately, she's no longer into dolls in the least. It's Beyblades or nothing.
