The Doll Days! Blog Hop
Hello everyone and welcome to RJR Fabrics stop on the Doll Days! Blog tour! Being a quilter for years I was nervous when I was asked by Erin to be part of this tour. I have never ever made a piece of clothing in my life and I was going to start with a doll dress? What! I thought this is madness, but as a young girl I loved playing with American Girl Dolls and I look back very fondly on this childhood memory. So I thought why not. I got this. Well it turned out I did! Once it was finished I proudly shared with everyone at the RJR offices and sent out a mass text to everyone I knew gloating about this huge accomplishment. Look what I did. I made a dress!! Okay okay. I bragged a little but come on? How cute is this Modern Vintage Sundress!
I decided to make the Modern Vintage Sundress. I thought it was so cute and would work perfectly with our new 1930s Everything But the Kitchen Sink collection released in the fall.
Erin’s book Doll Days! Is the reason a quilter for years, but by no means a seamstress could make a piece of clothing with no experience what so ever. It takes you step by step and answers any question you may have. Gather the skirt? Huh? Well Erin has a tutorial for gathering fabric. Which made it super easy for a beginner like me! I loved every minute of it and I cant wait to make other patterns offered in her Doll Days! Book.
It was such a wonderful experience and I am so happy I did it!Be sure to along with the rest of The Doll Days! Blog hop!
