Miss No No has taken an interest in dolls. It started with Elsa from the Frozen movie and advantaged to Cabbage Patch Dolls. As we were thinking about Christmas gifts for this year, Mr Bear and I decided to buy Miss No No a nice doll. Mr Bear would also build a dollhouse and I would make doll clothes. (Seriously, what was I thinking!?! Oh yeah, we work to make our children happy!)
The doll has been purchased, Mr Bear is researching dollhouse designs and I have started looking at doll clothes. While I was at Spring Quilt Market, I saw Amy Barickman‘s new fabric line called Stitcher’s Garden. It reminded me of clothes my mother made me growing up and seemed like a fantastic fit for Miss No No’s doll clothes. Fabric = Check!
Next, I wanted a pattern I could potentially make for both a doll and Miss No No. I immediately thought of Oliver + S patterns. The library had a copy of Little Things to Sew by Liesl Gibson so I decided to check it out and see if there was anything I might want to make. Umm… it is now on my list of books to buy! So many cute patterns.
As soon as I saw Tea Party Dress, the decision was made.
I can’t wait to make more!
