awwwwwww those are cute. They remind me of designing my own paper doll clothes for my dollies. :)Bea

Jazz said...

I would like the July dress please. Full size.

Joanie Hoffman said...

Thanks for looking, Bea & Jazz!
I did make all my mother's dresses back in the days when women couldn't wear slacks to work. I love to sew, so Jazz I'll let you know if I decide to make full size dresses again!

I love these - especially August.
Lovely dresses.

Thanks Bad Penny!

Both dresses are lovely, great colors and they look perfect for framing/hanging too!

I really like how you have turned these dresses into what could be wall hangings. The tiny stars and buttons on the front must have taken forever. The red and blue sewing around the outside really offset the burlap.

And that August dress with its rick-rack trim and circles shouts summer fun. I noticed even the background fabric has circles in it.

These are both very clever and very well done.

Thanks, Patty, the colors made the designs easy too!
Thanks, B&E, the little metal stars just needed 1 French knot each to hold them on. I appreciate your kind comments.
Madame Karen, it's always a good day when you visit! The gang has a new friend, Opal, a medium sized turtle.
Can't have too many friends.
