    i would love to have something like this for bed, its sooo cute!


    thanks everyone, it the second dress iv made and the first one iv had to line- man that was hard.:eusa_doh:

    As for the pattern- i found a pattern maker on etsy to draft the pattern to my size. I had to change it a bit but over all im happy and think it was worth the money once i figure the bust out some more, just want it to be perfect and still need to make a matching little jacket with it.

    Lady Day- mind if i ask what kind of fabric or the name of the fabric you used for the black part? I like the sheer and black dots.

    Thanks for the compliments everyone!
    BoPeep, I only had a small remnant of that black brocade and was sitting on it for ages not knowing what to do with it. It's only when I finished the dress that I realised it would be perfect for a bolero jacket and now I'm glad I didn't use it to cover a handbag or something.
    Lady Day, that outfit is too cute! Love your website as well!

    I've been wearing the blue "Swirl-a- like" dress so much I'm making more!

    Here I have the pockets and bodice cut out and the pockets edged
    with binding for the red one.
    That's just a picture of a pattern, for inspiration.

    Here's the gold one, similar India print cotton, equally comfy as the blue one.

    These are fun to make and even better to wear.

    Its a dotted Swiss. Well, not a *real* dotted Swiss, but the real stuff is pretty pricey, so there are plenty of knock offs. Its all cotton.

    olive bleu, I used two different patterns. The tap panties are from a repro I sell, and the bodice of the bed jacket is from a nightgown pattern I own.

    Thanks, Crwrit, Foofoogal and Tanuki (and anyone I missed!) Looks like those of use with resin dolls are everywhere these days!

    If I get a little time to myself, I have the Folkwear 1930's dress and yards and yards of of black rayon with crimson bamboo patterns that I think would rock it.
