Tea Towel Coat And Bonnet

I didn’t think I would have enough fabric to make the bonnet, but I did.  I lined both the bonnet and the bodice part of the coat.

I love the red hearts and when I can find read heart buttons, I will replace the tin ones I added today.  I also would rather have red ribbon, so that might get replaced too.  Using what I had on hand.

Joanie is different to sew for.  I have to consider her curved body and the shortness of her legs and of course her cloth parts.  So I think these longer dresses give her the appearance of length and help with giving her a bit of bulkiness that suits her soft body.  I love it though, she seems to fit into her very own look which is fun for me to explore.
