Chelle is Pretty in Pink

I can't remember dressing either of my daughters in pink after growing out of the "newborn" size, but this little doll is another story. Pink looks so nice on her that I decided to stay with it. I made her a multi-colored sweater coat to wear over her original pink dress and another pink knit dress with multi-colored bodice and pink satin ribbon. She's so proud of her new eyelet edged slip she just had to show that off too.

The sweater is a favorite one that I've made for quite a few babies. I just made it a bit smaller for the doll.

This dress is another item that just popped into my head and developed as I went along. I'm thinking that it needs some little pink flowers on the bodice though.

Surprise! Surprise! I turned her around to take a picture of the back of the dress and realized that she could probably wear it backwards for a different look. I think I like this better.

Chelle is done for now, other than making her a pair of booties or shoes. I'm waiting to be inspired. While going through my scrap box, I found some interesting material that will make an awesome jacket for Sammy. Now I can't wait to get started on that!

I hope you've enjoyed my little wardrobe update. Thanks for stopping in. I hope to have a new project posted in a couple of days. In the meantime, stay safe and enjoy the day.




  1. Cute and sweet in pink. The multi blue feels to me a little like denim and seems to bring out her color more....(at least on screen, anyways!).

    Also wanted to mention earlier that Midge reminds me of Aunty Isabelle! Ha! Don't know why. All she would need is a beer glass and cig. Love you Aunt Isabelle! Hugs and kisses. We definitely had/have some fun loving girls in our family!

  2. LOL! Midge reminded me of Aunty Isabelle too! We think way too much alike! She's definitely going to have to be wearing an apron. If you drop the beer and the cig, Aunty Isabelle always looked like June Clever in the kitchen. She always wore the prettiest aprons. :)
