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.
