Holiday Sewing: Dolly Dresses

First up: dolly dresses for Kenley!  

I made simple doll for her for Christmas a couple of years ago, but only included 1 or 2 dresses.  I thought she needed more, to suit every dolly occasion.  I just have to finish the neck and hems with bias tape, add some snaps, and they'll be done.  I also want to make this hooded doll blanket from Sparkle Power for her.

The pattern for both the dolly and the dresses came from a fantastic book called My Learn to Sew Book.  It is, sadly,out of print.  I found mine at a thrift store.  Here's a copy on Etsy.  It's aimed at kids, but I have gotten so much use out of this book.  So, so many fun sewing projects.  If you ever see a copy, be sure to snap it up!
