I got Felicity (before she was cool) when I was eleven. Yes, there were some jealous moments with the two of them, but I learned to keep a balance with my two beauties. I think I had it rigged so that one doll got to sleep with me while the other got her respective doll bed.
ENOUGH of nostalgia. Excuse me.
Anyway, my mother made me many girl-doll dresses, amongst them selections from Josefina and Felicity's wardrobes. But one dress I never had for Felicity or me was this one.
I always told myself that I would make it... someday. And that someday did come last year, when I had a bunch of light cream fabric that was free. I thought... why not?
I made a few modifications so that an older girl might wear it. For example, the bodice is very fitted and more to the period, and the painted sash on the original was exchanged for actual embroidery on the bodice.
I haven't seen this dress for my age bracket anywhere else on the internet... could it be that I'm the first one to make it? Woo! First fan-made one!
Is it just me, or do I match the house?
There's the embroidery. You can also see that I put a pair of dark blue ties in the side seams.
Last one, ladies! Am I waiting for Ben Davidson in that picture?
...an older, swoon-worthy Ben Davidson?
This dress will not be listed on Etsy (anytime soon, that is!), but if you're interested in one for your size, do not hesitate to contact me! I'd be happy to do this dress again.
