Then [Mr. Eugene Wrayburn] fell to talking playfully with Jenny Wren. “I think of setting up a doll, Miss Jenny,” he said.
“You had better not,” replied the dressmaker.
“You are sure to break it. All you children do.” (Our Mutual Friend, by Charles Dickens, Book II, Chapter 2)
This is the last post of doll clothes that I made for this project (a wardrobe for five 18″ dolls)! There is a shirt of many colors, a plaid jumper (I did not make the shirt shown with this jumper), and a ruffle top. The ruffle top was not intended to be a dress — I just didn’t have any pants or skirts on hand to photograph with it.
I had a lot of fun with this project! I had a variety of fabrics and trim to make use of, and got to use my imagination in putting it all together. If the children they are for have nearly as much fun playing with these outfits as I had sewing them, it was time well spent!
