Yo Baby's Makeover

Rascal has recently started dressing her dolls up. The problem is that we don't have any dolls clothes, so poor Yo Baby has had to wear Wee Man's clothes and Rascal's clothes (all of which are way way too big for her!)

THE BEFORE PICTURES (Yo Baby in her original clothes and dressed in Rascal's t-shirt)
This weekend, I finally decided that it was time to take action so I collected some scraps of fabric and started creating.

To be honest, I am a bit gob-smacked that my first attempts at dressmaking actually fit Yo Baby. Not only that but they look pretty darn cute!

THE AFTER PICTURES: Here is Yo Baby modelling the first Outfit
In an attempt to avoid sewing fiddly tiny little seams and to give Yo Baby the maximum amount of clothes with the minimum amount of effort, I decided to make the dresses reversible. I will do the shoulders slightly differently next time, but all in all I am really pleased with the finished result. More to the point, Rascal is THRILLED and Yo Baby has hardly left her side since the new dresses were handed over.

And here she is modelling the second dress... a funky retro style mini-dress

Now, I think that I need to attempt to make some trousers for Yo Baby next.

Challenge #44- (Make dolls clothes)- Underway! I don't dare to say that this challenge is finished otherwise poor Rascal will never get any more dolls clothes!

  6. these are awesome! Dolls clothes just arent around much anymore are they?? People just seem to buy lots more dolls now than we had as kids, and then they stay in the same outfit...boring. Go you good mummy!!
    p.s you may have luck selling dolls clothes in your felt shop!

  7. Very nice.
    Yo Baby looks so much nicer in her pretty new dresses.
    I look forward to seeing more outfits!

  8. Yo Baby is going to get some 'yo mama' comments in her styly outfits - she is rocking!
