One of my latest finds is Sofia who is
a Baby so Beautiful by Playmates.
She was dressed in this denim overall and red gingham top.
Nothing to write home about, SO
I decided they needed a makeover!
Denim overall, pretty ordinary.
AND, here it is now.
I added this big bib pocket in pink gingham, and a smaller
pocket on the right front.
I added rick-rack over the straps and along the waistband.
Some buttons and a ribbon rose,
I had this unfinished tee-shirt lying around and decided it would
make a cute baby top, I just added a little pink ribbon on the collar.
And a flower on the bum.
The red gingham top was really sad.
Again, nothing special, but this one really made me think.
What can I do with THIS?
This is what I came up with.
I decided to make a dress out of it, but I really
had a hard time finding the right fabrics.
There was lace around the collar and around the sleeves,
but the collar needed something to pull it together with the new skirt.
I used the collar from the AG Molly pattern.
It made a nice wide peter pan collar for this dress.
I put new elastic in the sleeves and added a spotted
red button. The lace on the sleeves will need replacing, but it's ok for now.
I am quite pleased with the results of both these new outfits.
