It has been a while since I made anything for my ball jointed dolls, and one particular doll has been waiting a long time for something to wear.
This is Yuna, a 1/6 scale ball jointed doll that I got last November. Until now the only thing I had made for her to wear was a sweater (see From Socks to Doll Sweaters) to pair with a borrowed dress from one of the other dolls.
But now she has this adorable little blue doll dress to wear. It is made from a scrap of blue cotton left over from a Halloween costume (see Halloween = Tulle) with a little bit of lace.
I decorated it with tiny pearl beads and a tiny rosette and ribbon bow.
And for those who have ball jointed dolls this size or similar sized dolls, I have a little treat. I made a sewing tutorial for this dress on my doll blog. It includes a free downloadable pattern. Feel free to check it out.
In addition to the dress, I whipped up a simple little felt bag and a cute lace headband. The bag is made the same way as the felt doll purses I made last summer (see 5 a Week: Cute Felt Bags for Dolls with a Tutorial).
The headband is just some lace with a bit of elastic at the back. Super easy to whip up and super pretty. I think I want to make some more, for me and my dolls.
Overall, it makes for one cute little dolly outfit. And there are more to come later.
Here’s the updated list:
Four down, just one more to go.
