Dress Up Clothes



In the land of make-believe and dress-up, is the play time for kids.  I have a granddaughter who loves to play dress-up and for her birthday, I wanted to add some dress-up garments.




Here is a overview of the garments and patterns, all made in a Size 2 or a small according to the pattern sizing. .  All the fabric came from Joann's and my sewing room floor still has fur and glitter even after running my vacuum  a few times!


:Let's start with this purple, cream dress, or as I call it a Cinderella princess dress.  The pattern is Simplicity 1303 and it is view C.



I loved the light purple fabric but there was only enough for the bodice, so I used a cream flannel back satin for the skirt.  This view, has an extra belt piece, a cute fabric belt with the tulle attached. This is such a good idea and I can see it being used on several of the other outfits I made.




This next outfit was the first garment I made, the unicorn tulle is just so cute.  The pattern is skirts only, Simplicity 8627, Disney Princess pattern to be exact.


A better look at the unicorns.  The top is Simplicity 8729, view B and I slimmed it quite a bit, this tunic/dress is really wide.  I had just enough of the light purple to cut the body of the top.



This skirt was a bit big on her, so I quickly added some tucks to the back elastic.

Next up Simplicity 8729 again, the dress and the robe.  There was very little pink heart fabric, so it is only used on the front and back of the dress.  Sorry the shine from this fabrics make it hard to photograph.


The trim on the sleeve was a clearance Christmas trim

Since this is a wide dress and she has lots of extra room, I thought when she gets taller, I can add a ruffle to the bottom.  

The cape take quite a bit of fabric, I made mine shorter!  The collar is such a pretty detail which I wanted to stand up like it was designed.  I used two layers of fusible fleece and it really has nice body and stands up!

The ribbon, is from a spool I purchased at Joann's I just went for the one with one with the most glitter!





Another cape coming up and it is an Unicorn inspired one, Simplicity 8483, view D.  Oh, my gosh, it is just so cute



The ears are interfaced and there is cardboard inserted to keep them up.



Last but not least, I used up the last of the flannel back satin and made one more dress from Simplicity 8729 and some scraps of trims to make an apron to match, too.



Oh one more thing, I made doll outfits to match for her 18" doll, a Christmas present from an Aunt.  The purple/white princess dress is a pattern from when I made my daughters doll clothes,
 Simplicity 5705.  Actually they are all from patterns I made for my daughters' dolls.

  1. How much fun! Your granddaughter will love this! When I was small my grandmother made my doll clothes to match mine. Seventy years later I still have the doll & her clothes. Great memories.

    1. She was pretty excited and wanted to try some of them on right away! You are right if you have someone in your family that can make things, kids think that is the way it is everywhere.

  8. My wish right now is that God should continue to bless Dr Emu for his good works towards the life of those people who are heart broken. My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; emutemple@gmail.com , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.

    You know, my grandma fabricates super adorable clothes. Last week, she designed a yellow dress for my younger sister with pearls on the neckline. The dress was simple yet stunning. I requested her to teach me all this since it influenced me a lot. Although I was busy with my assignments at that moment, then I found Best Assignment Writing Service UK who helped me with my assignments. As a result, I got good grades, and now I am creating a pink dress for my younger one.

  21. It's great to hear that you found a creative solution to the limited fabric issue by combining the light purple bodice with the cream flannel back satin skirt. The addition of the fabric belt with the tulle attached definitely adds an extra touch of charm and can be versatile for other outfits as well. Good job! Additionally, for those who are looking to enhance the production process in UAE, it might be worth considering investing in quality chemical injection in UAE which can help control the dosage of chemicals added during the production process.
