A new dress….

Not for me.
I’m so busy with the Littleton Family Story that most of my crafty makes seem to be for them at the moment.

So a teeny make this week as I had to make a new dress for Baby Littleton who,  in the story,  has begun to toddle…

First of all I took off the long skirt, the bodice is a little lace ribbon and I left in place, as well as the ribbon bonnet. I just removed the little blue ribbons.

As the lower part of her original dress was decorated with lace and silk I decided to cut away the plain cotton top.


I turned in the raw edge and with a simple running stitch I sewed around the new waist.

This running stitch was then used to gather in the waist.

Then I thought, as she’s a little older she may like a bit of pink ribbon around the waist … Not that we’ll see that as I use a #willowfilter

Lastly I added some little pink dots around the flowers on her bonnet – just to make it look a little different.
She’s ready to toddle! But is interested in her sisters postcard album first.


Forgive me if you’re already following The Littleton’s on Instagram, or do not use Instagram or are just not interested in the lives of a family who live in a dollshouse… I’m afraid they have rather taken over my free time!

This is the address if you’re wondering what’s it all about….

Thanks for reading,
Back soon, love Rosie
