Entry #57

Second Outfit Entry

Goldilocks Dress by Sock Monkey’s Business

Outfit design

A lot of thought and planning went into this outfit. I started with a
picture from a quilt show that I attended earlier in the year – I love
the sun dress and went to Pinterest for more ideas – I found a pattern
idea that looked very easy to make in only 4 ½ hours and a yellow
jacket to go with the sundress – and then I found blue print fabric
that came from my Grandma’s stash and a yellow shirt that needed
re-imagined. I decided to add a purse, purchase sunglasses and use my
favorite white doll espadrilles.

I made three skirts for the dress for this challenge, the first one
was too big, the second one was too small and the third one was just
right! I spent some time re-figuring the pattern and using higher math
– but it didn’t work as I had expected. I have learned that pattern
making is not as easy as I thought – or I just need more practice!

Outfit in progress – the too small skirt turned out to fit my Monkey!
So I made two versions of the sundress!

Time to model and a little sock monkey business never hurts!

It all started with a sock monkey who needed a Halloween costume.
After making him a costume, I branched out to create custom outfits
for American Girl dolls. I use my sewing, quilting and designing
background to create one-of-a-kind creations for any sized doll - or

Sun dresses are so "in" this summer. She is right in style and it can even be workwear with the jacket! Love it.
