Last fall my niece asked kindly for some new skirts and a dress for her bunny. She lives several states away, so I asked my sister for some new measurements. I also asked her what my niece wore in RTW for her favorite dress. Comparing the measurements, I determined that a size 14 (girls) would be the right size, so started on McCalls 7079.
Well, the dress hangs on her and the bunny dress would not button shut. Fortunately, the dress fit her American Girl doll. We’re doing this fitting via text message.
I cut out another dress for each and made some adjustments. A size 12, plus raising the neckline another 1/2 inch (it’s far larger than the envelop shows). And I added 4 inches to the bunny dress. I got them there in time for Christmas, and voila! Perfect. I immediately cut out two more dresses, thinking I could send them in time for Christmas, but only made them this weekend.
The black and pink floral is a poly ponte from Gorgeous Fabrics. The brown floral is poly ITY from Gorgeous Fabrics. The green velvet (Marcy Tilton) is the same velvet I used for my shirt. I didn’t get a new picture of the bunny dress.
Hope she likes them. I’m partial to the brown floral.
