Sometimes Your Favorite Doll Needs a Little Lovin'

Not all of my customers have fitting problems to be solved. This week a lady had an heirloom doll that she loved as a child. Somewhere along the years she lost her apron. She wanted my help creating a new one, as close to the old one as possible.

We'll start with a photo of the finished product. I got some photos off the internet so I could see what the apron was supposed to look like. Some versions had a little eyelet detail, but we opted for the plain version.

I made the straps of the sash long enough to tie in a cute bow.

I angled the straps so they would keep the apron on Raggety's shoulders. Raggety Ann is good to go.
