Entry #66


Second Outfit Entry

From RedBug

My original idea came from a picture I found on Pinterest.


At first, I was going to crochet the bodice of a dress and then attach some plain white fabric for the skirt of the dress. Then, I was able to find some actual lace fabric, which would not only be a whole lot easier to make and work with, it would make the outfit more my own. I made it using a lengthened Liberty Jane T-shirt pattern.



I ended up making the dress longer than I anticipated, but I like it this way. It gives it a formal look, and I can use this dress for more fancy occasions as well.



The jean jacket was a little more of a puzzle. I wanted it to be thinner, more like a denim shirt than a jacket. Using regular denim from jeans would have been too thick for my idea. Then I found a light blue fabric that was a very light denim. It was perfect for this jacket. I again used the Liberty Jane t-shirt pattern with some modifications. I somewhat followed Bean Bunny's tutorial- http://www.beanbunny.com/bshirt.html



Then came the belt dilemma. I wanted a leather belt for this outfit, but I do not have a good craft store near me where I can get doll size buckles. Then I found this human size belt that was very narrow, and had a perfect size buckle. It wasn't exactly the rich brown I was originally picturing for my outfit, but the bright red adds a bit of color to my outfit.




It's done! The boots my doll is wearing are from the MyAG Rustic Ranch outfit.
