Testing a friend's dress pattern on former soldier doll

This was a test dress that I made, using a friend's prototype pattern.  I wonder if anyone else has ever had a blog post entitled "testing a friend's dress pattern on former soldier doll."

She really wanted a waist band to show off her figure.

Then she insisted on puff sleeves, a fuller skirt and an eyelet ruffle.  I wonder what she'll want next.


  1. I love the dress with the red trims. Did you crackle her after the makeover?

  2. Lizzie - She crackled her with One Step. One reason that I wanted to re-do her was that I didn't like final crackle/antiquing on the soldier boy. It just looked wrong and messy to me.

  3. The dress is adorable and suits the doll very well. :o)

  4. She is adorable. Thanks for your help, it looks great....I've decided to change this pattern into two patterns....stay tuned ;-)

  5. Demanding little things, aren't they? Love the dress AND the doll. :~)
