Little Darling doll heirloom smocked dress




This is the first dress in a series I have embarked on that feature antique lace. I love the classy ecru on white look and bullion roses of course. My model is a Mini Maru doll who has very close measurements to the Dianna Effner's Little Darling doll.  I have used heirloom sewing methods to create a precious collectors item. The swiss insertion lace on this dress is a beautiful piece of antique lace. The hem and collar lace is a modern matching lace.

Little Darling dress with machine embroidery

My very sweet husband gifted me with an embroidery program to use with my new Bernini sewing and embroidery machine this past Christmas.  He knows my love of making pretty handcrafted products for my Etsy shop. "The Hello Dolly Collection" by Kathy Harrison has everything you need to create pretty machine embroidered heirloom sewn dresses for dolls.  I look forward to many hours of crafting with this great tool . . .

My Mini Maru doll models this embroidered dress, slip and pocketbook set to fit a 13" doll, such as Dianna Effner Little Darling doll.
