Maria wanted to stay in summer clothes...can't say I blame her...it is so very hot right now. I found this cute wet suit and boogie board, and just had to buy it for the girls.....Love the water shoes!!!!
Nicole looks so cute in this handmade purple crochet outfit, with beads!!! I love purple, and this one is sure to please. The outfit has beads on the top and on the beret type hat...so cute!!!! Lighter purple trim on cap sleeve.
Nicole was fighting with Maria on what they would wear next, since we have had so many sundresses....and was so excited to be wearing this one!!!!
I bought this outfit...it was winter, and I was longing for summer....Now it is really HOT!!!! Ally will be cool though....and I just love the flip flops!!!!
I promise...last sundress, at least for a while. Madison begged to model it...it came out really cute. I think I may donate it to a site for a drawing, or one made out of the same pattern....She looks so summery.
Decided to work on some more summer fashion...and not a sundress....was getting tired of sundresses ....although I do have one more in the works!!! This came out so cute, and is even cuter in person!!!
|Check out my Etsy shop for more outfits!!!|
Nicole was having a fit because I didn't show you "HER" sundress....she looks so cute and summery!!! It has been really hot here and the girls have been getting much use out of their sundresses...but it is turning cool for this next week, with rain....which we desperately need...so that is good, will need to get out some hoodies and sweaters!!!
Alyssa and Maddy are sharing secrets....shhh....don't tell....!!!! I just got a couple of orders on my Etsy Shop, so I thought I'd post a few "non-historical" outfits....while I get these made up. Alyssa is wearing another cute sundress...I made this one for my granddaughters for Easter. I love this print fabric.
Ally looks a little shocked by whatever Maddy told her!!!
So you get another non-historical outfit...the mirror image to the dress I showed yesterday....It came out so cute...reminds me of sherbert ice cream,. Yum!!! Madison looks very cool and comfortable. Love the sandals
Emma is all set for this hot summer weather.....I made the same dresses for my granddaughters for Christmas....they loved them. I love the print...it is so crisp and summery!!!!
Olivia loves her newest outfit...embroidered jeans, a pink jersey and fun poncho....She's gonna take a walk at the park to see how bad the fire got over in that area.
I do need to get Abby dressed in some summer clothes...I get hot just looking at her......But I love, love, love this outfit...it is so Colorado!!!! And the boots are to die for.
Busy still working on the Slippers to Samantha's Robe set, so here is a non-historical outfit I did for Maria.....crisp blue cotton, makes a very comfortable school dress, with a bow, and buttons down the front.

This little girl, I also found in a catalog, and couldn't resist....but alas, they would make good baby sisters for the AG's. Facial features are really cute but toddlerish. Made the red romper for my Ladystamp Etsy shop....am moving it over to my Praire Wind Etsy Shop....so check it out!

I found this doll in a catalog...and ordered her...don't know the brand....I fell in love with the face...although she looks younger than the regular AG dolls. We named her Alyssa....and she even came with the outfit!!! The granddaughters love undressing this one!!!! You can really tell the difference from AG dolls...the wig is really sparse. And the Springfield Collection Dolls have rooted hair, so it is really thin in areas.....Love my AG dolls!!!!
One more non-historical....or Granddaughter Doll....last of our Springfield collection dolls....Madison. I love her hair....she's a keeper!!!!! I bought this outfit because it had a matching girl nightie, so one of the Em's will get that this winter! Love the bunny slippers too, sorry they got cut off! And I did make the bear...I love bears, almost as much as dolls!!!
Since I'm busy working on Kirsten's Nightgown...I thought I'd post another of my Granddaughters (Springfield Collection) Dolls. This one is Maria...but she looks just like my granddaughter Abbey. And the little girls loved playing with this great wintery Colorado outfit....a tribute to snowboarding....I couldn't resist this one...it's a Sophia outfit...complete with helmet, goggles boots and snowboard....Go Maria...Go!!!!
This is Miss Emma....she is another Springfield Collection Doll that I got for my granddaughters to play with. Been really busy getting ready for an event at my house this weekend.,..so really haven't been able to sew like I want to....maybe tonight if I get everything done for tomorrow!!!! She's wearing a cute little sundress I made using 2 fat quarters. This dress is for sale on my Etsy shop if you are interested.

Meet Olivia...she is another Springfield Collection doll that I got for my granddaughters to play with.....love her red hair!!! I also wanted to send her to my niece Lilly, but couldn't find her so she got Emma....will post her picture another day!
I purchased her outfit from Sophia's, isn't it just too precious....sometimes ya gotta just break down and do it!!! She's all set for the warm weather we are hoping for this next week!!! I noticed while dressing her that her legs were about as wobbly as Samantha's, so now I don't feel so bad. I know Olivia has been dressed and redressed quite a bit by 2 little girls.
Kirsten, I'm hoping will arrive tomorrow...I have her undergarments almost finished....she will be all set when she gets here! Then to get going on Samantha's and also Kirsten's Meet outfit!
Meet Miss Abby...she is not an American Girl Doll, but a Springfield Collection Doll... The first doll I got. I figured, if I wanted my granddaughters playing with these dolls at an early age....I couldn't let them play with the more pricey American Girl dolls. Springfield Dolls are well made and sturdy.....and at a fraction of the AG price....if the hair gets pulled, or frazzeled, or an arm breaks...I'm not gonna be too upset, especially if she was well, loved, and these girls get very well loved. 2 and 3 year olds, just want to dress and undress .... ALL DAY LONG!!!!!
The outfit is gorgeoous.....I found these pre- made panels, you just cut out and piece together....they are really pretty...and I think making this one was what started this whole thing. This dress was for Melinda Dalton, who was born in 1835 in Dug Spur, Virginia....she was a maid in a wealthy land owners household, and this would have been her Sunday dress. I love the paisley print.
OK...I know I said that this site is all about Historical dolls....but sometimes, I like to make, non-historical outfits for grandchildren and great nieces....here is one I just finished up for one of my great nieces...I won't name her, as this is a surprise
|Wookie Bear is giving her a kiss goodbye....They are such good friends!!!|
