One of my favorite things is old-fashioned clothing. It's so fascinating. I love the Victorian era of clothing because It's so ladylike, feminine, and pretty. I would love to be able to wear flounces and bustles.......although I don't know if I could endure the corsets! The whole style of that era had such detail and beauty. I love to make dolls clothing partly because it's less time consuming, and partly because they don't call for as much fabric and trimmings! I made this Victorian style blue and white doll dress that fits one of my favorite dolls. It has white ribbon running down the front of it and a white bustle in the back. I like the blue and white colors of the dress. I think they look nice together.
I really like the bustle in the back. I've tried to make a bustle on a dress like that before but it didn't turn out as nice as I would have liked it to. The skirt was too big for the doll. I hate it when that happens; although most of the things I make turn out too small!
I usually make things for my family so I like to get a lot of pictures of it! Hope you enjoyed!
