Create these pretty summery fifties inspired frocks with this beautifully designed Keepers Dolly Duds doll...
It was a fun pattern to do, and I loved the results. The lace up top was a white and orange print on black, and skirt was red.. with an orange apron to match the top. All was trimmed in rick rack and white lace. The headband matched the skirt. It was bright and fun and my granddaughter loves it.
I love, love, love this pattern. I have sewed for almost 60 years and can definitively tell you this is one of the best doll patterns I have ever worked with.
