Another Corolle Les Cheries Doll

 Hello. The doll on the left is a Corolle Les Cheries doll I found on ebay. She came to my house in need of a bath and shampooing and was only wearing her birthday suit. This is her after an evening at the spa and wearing a new dress I made her (and panties just like her sister). I actually used some of my stash on her dress. That always feels good. Here are a couple of full length pictures of the dresses.


I've always enjoyed making pillowcases. When my children were small, I'd buy a yard of print fabric of whatever they were into at the time. I've made pillowcases with everything from whales to My Little Pony on them. Spunk's bed was in need of an upgrade, so I got into my stash and made her a wolf pillowcase, a horse pillowcase, and a neon horse pillowcase for her body pillow. She's delighted.        


Thanks for stopping by. =)

Sewing at last!

It has been such a long time since I have sewn anything, let alone fussy little doll clothes, that I find I'm quite out of practice. My little Corolle Les Cheries doll, Ines, came as a ballerina. I've never been particularly fond of ballerinas/princesses, and besides her feet looked like they were killing her in those stockings and ballet flats. Also, she had no underwear. Spunk says I'm crazy, but I think panties for dolls are just as important as they are for me. Here she is at last with a new dress (and panties). I've never made doll shoes. Eventually I'll get my courage up and try to make some.

"I'm still waiting for that cammie you suggested Mom make, Aunty Audra!"
