Skill Level – Quick & Easy – Perfect for Beginners and quick and easy doll sewing projects
You can make all the pieces look cute n casual or you can make them look cute and dressy simply by changing the fabrics you use and/or adding embellishments like ribbon, ric rac, lace, buttons or any other trims and embellishments you happen to have on hand.
The top of the bodice would even look great with a little embroidery and even a few beads would look wonderful too. The Cute n Casual designs are great little basics that you can use and let your imagination run wild with the fun you’d like to have changing up the style.
The top, pants and dress can be made from a variety of fabrics including cotton, cotton blends, rayon, silk, or just about any other piece of woven fabric you happen to have on hand. Perhaps you have some scraps left over from a quilting project or another garment you have made.
