Gracie's Wardrobe Recap

In April I found a doll in pristine condition at a thrift store. For $3 I couldn't pass her up. I named her Gracie.

I've been making clothes for her each month ever since. I'm giving her to my great-niece Maddie for Christmas. Here's a recap, in chronological order, of the clothes and accessories I've made.
April, purple print dress that coordinates with 
the hair elastic Gracie came with

April-May, accessories & nightgown

May, dress that matches Maddie's Easter dress

June, denim separates & tee shirts

July, reversible dress

August, maxi dress

September, yoga pants, sleeveless top, 
flyaway cardigan and skirt

October, jacket

November dress & skirt

December skirt & jacket

Purchased footwear

I think I finally have doll clothes out of my system! Can't wait to watch Maddie open her gift!


In putting this recap together, I've learned that I should plan series photos better, making them a consistent size and shape and using a consistent background. Good to know...

  2. You have made some pretty neat outfits and a great gift for a little girl. I used to love to make doll clothes. The only thing I hated was sewing on all of the little snaps. I suppose Velcro is used now for fasteners.

  9. I didn't notice the different backgrounds until you mentioned it. The different size pictures didn't bother me either. maybe i'm just one of the 1% that just goes with the flow of how things are.
    Great gift!
