Dress Sets From My Tinies Closet

A giant hello to you all from my tiniest girls, Amelia Thimble and Izzy.

They have some news for you today.  Amelia and Izzy will be offering their new dress sets up for sale tonight.  They’ve had fun modeling them for you, and now would like to share them with their tiny friends.

We’ve been busy little bees working on these for quite a while now.  It’s been almost a year since I’ve made these tiny dresses, and I must say I enjoyed working on them once again.  Below are some in progress photos.

New Knitting Pattern

Happy Friday to everyone!  I finished my sweater dress pattern (earlier than expected, yay!) for the Little Darlings.  If you read yesterday’s blog post, “A Little Wish for Spring”, you saw the sample I made for this pattern.  (The beret Alice is wearing is from my beret pattern.)

This sweater dress pattern has two sleeve lengths, short (shown) and elbow length.  I’ve also included two dress lengths.  I made the shorter length for “A Little Wish for Spring”.  The longer length is the same width, but with 8 additional rows.  The pattern guides you through the raglan bodice and then the increases to form the a-line skirt shape.  BTW, as most of my knitting patterns are, this dress is knit all in one piece!  The dress is made with fingering weight wool; I used Palette from Knit Picks in Blossom Heather.

My sweater patterns are made with ease to be worn over a dress.  This sweater dress pattern, however, is made so that the dress fits on the doll without ease.  It is a cute, fitted bodice, no bagginess.  Dianna Effner created the most adorably sculpted Little Darling dolls, so I like to highlight their cuteness when I design for them.

The sweater dress is the perfect canvas for embroidery or other embellishment.  I’ve included photos from some of my other Little Darling sweater dress embroidery to spark you creativity.
