doll clothes swap


In honor of Saint Valentine, here's a little Parisian romance: a flirty pink capelette, a simple linen dress, a mini deer purse and a tiny book of French love poems. I'm hoping this sassy ensemble will bring a little love to my swap partners' special little girls. I went wild with the capelettes, making one for each of my swap ladies, one for my niece and one for baby J.'s upcoming birthday.

Lovely. I wish I knew how to sew so I could have participated in your swap. The little dress and bag are divine.

Oh so sweet and lovely, I love the whole ensemble, the linen dress is so simple and pretty. I feel quite ashamed now, all the dolls in this house are positively under-dressed.

Marcia said...

Oh my! Yours are absolutely adorable. Mine went out in the mail yesterday. It sure was a fun little project. Thanks so much for organizing. I hope you will post more outfits for us to see.
