Doily Dress

This is a dress that I crocheted using a doily pattern as a guide. I used patons grace yarn. It turned out a little full, but looks pretty good in the photo (which I hope you can see--as it is a mystery as to when blog photos will decide to appear!)
The doll is an Adora "name your own baby" that my mom got me from a trip to the NC Mountains.

My First Post

This is my first post, so bear with me. Here is a photo of one of many doll outfits I made over Christmas. I wanted to learn how to make something other than blankets & doilies. Since dolls in a home of 4 boys are few, my mom gave me this baby born for my (imagine!) 43rd birthday. This was test project, but I thought it turned out pretty cute. I couldn't decide what I was doing, and it was getting too tight to be a I fashioned a cover for her bottom and made it into a romper. The ruffle is there mainly to cover where it was seamed together (which ended up in the front) and to make the outfit prettier. This very much an original design~~I am pretty sure even I couldn't recreate this one!
(I am having trouble getting photos to load into a post. We'll see if it shows up!)
