Emma's Pink "Box Hill" Dress...for 18-inch dolls! :-)

Here it is! The finished product! Well, maybe the finished product. I might add some embellishments to it later.

I based this off of Emma's dress that she wears to Box Hill in the 2009 version of Emma. It's not identical, just based on it. :-) Once I get my computer back, I will load some pictures of Emma's dress for comparison.

I used the pattern for Josefina's Christmas Dress, but added maybe an inch or two across the bodice so that it would gather at the top. I used brown bias tape on the neckline and waistline.


This dress will probably be going to a lawn sale booth in May and if it doesn't sell there I'll put it on Etsy. Though, to be truthful, I don't think Rebecca would mind keeping it either. :-)

P.S. The strange contraption in the background (the silver thing) is a coffee urn that belonged to my great-great-great-grandmother. Just in case you were wondering. :-D

Sarah,
I haven't loaded it to Etsy yet, but I will probably post it for $15.00. :-)
