Finally after looking on the internet for what people want I found the last material in bits and pieces I have sewn on many dolls years ago.  This time it is a cream crushed tafetta crushed very finely and easy to maintain no ironing.....just hand or machine wash put on the line to dry and put it straight back onto the doll.

At first the design was boring just with the panel on the front and some lace I found a wide lace and looking on the heirlooms of the internet I stitched the lace on the yoke like Bat wings or a large frill catching it at the waste and tying it up with ribbon and letting the tails hang.  It reminded me of a butterfly so I digitised a butterfly my first try handyed it and I sewed it onto the front yoke to add colour and interest of the old world without spoiling too much of the cream. I stitched the same wide lace at the bottom of the dress making it very long and old world....She also has a petticoat, and hat to match the outfit and bootees to follow on order..

I have pulled out all the baby dolls I guess they have been stale or people cannot see what they look like. Sugar Britches is my all time favourite she came out many many years ago when the doll game was new and

exciting.  Shes simple, a sleeping babe to me its a lovely doll to put on the bed sleeping away, an awake doll I prefer in the cabinet.. Lots of people in this modern world don't put much on their bed but rubbish and their rooms to me don't look inviting or interesting...I still remember going into places of years ago although some were cluttered some were so so pretty and very interesting... I guess these days people do go into their bedrooms and close them off completely hiding away the interest, showing off their places of living so they are not talking points.  I don't believe in over cluttering things but I a home is your heart memories of yesterday, today and maybe tomorrows......A home is only while you live on this earth to enjoy the fruits of living.......
