Apple-Print Prairie Doll Dress

Here is today's project!! :-D

Isn't Samantha C-YUTE in braids???? :-D She has been a very gracious and excellent model, despite her wobbly legs.

I like this view. :-)

And guess what's underneath?
Bloomers! My first time making anything like pants. It was fun and EASY! :-D They look just like the ones Kirsten came in (which I need to make some for her because, I don't know how but they are so yellowed now, and have a mysterious stain on them that I have no idea what it is! :-S) Anyway!

They're now on sale at our etsy shop! :-D

Yes it is adorable!

It reminds me of a dress that a 12 year old gal I know has who does civil war reenacting in my reenacting group with her family. Her sister made her the dress and her's looks similar except its her size! :)

Its here- http://singinginhisname.blogspot.com/2010/01/1860s-new-years-party-fun.html

scroll down on the post to the pictures of the gift exchange and she is sitting on the couch in the middle! She is next to my sister in the green dress and red hair if that helps. I thought that was fun that is similar! But it has short sleeves, but the fabric looks similar!
