I was at Mimi's blog and she is doing some wonderful OOAK girls, including this little witch. Her dress is made from the sleeve of a cashmere sweater and I just love the look of it! It's very similar to how I made Miranda's blouse and I thought I would explain how I did it. Miranda's blouse is the sleeve of an antique christening gown which came with a Horsman TineyBaby I bought for only $20 at a street fair this summer. The doll and gown were both a mess, but especially the gown- rips, tears, mold-ick! But I couldn't throw it away! I put the doll in a nicer gown that I had and I saved this one even though I never thought I could put it to use.
When I opened up the cupboard looking for fabrics for Miranda, I was trying to find something that was not too stiff and when I reached the whites, this gown was on top. So soft and fine! Then I saw the beautiful hand worked buttonholes and scallops on the the wrists. Wouldn't that be a pretty waistline treatment? So, after some pondering, I cut the sleeve off, cut tiny new sleeves from the neckline of the gown, attached the sleeves to the blouse, and then gathered the new neckline with a running stitch and put it on Miranda. Perfection! The belt is braided embroidery floss. It's so pretty, I wish I could have the blouse in grown up size for myself!
