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.
