But have you seen the dress that goes with it?
Okay, the commercial break is over!! This is Mimi.
After I made Josefina her newsboy cap, I decided that she really needed something to wear it with.
Sure, she could have just kept on wearing the Kelly doll jean jacket and her blue T-shirt, but she has always held something of a grudge against the Kelly clothes. Plus, blue T-shirts aren't that amazing.
So I set to work!!
I made this dress from part of an old T-shirt. It was originally going to be sort of a sun dress, but I like it this way a lot more.
And this dress, I am pleased to say, closes with Velcro. I know that in and of itself, Velcro isn't that great.
But before you start wondering why I'm making such a big deal out of Velcro, read the next bit.
The only kind of Velcro that we keep around here is the sticky backed stuff. It is a royal pain to sew on because it leaves your index finger dreadfully sore for about a day, and really messes up your needle.
I usually use snaps.
Thanks for looking!!
