My Handmade Dolly

Here is a doll I made using an old dress pattern from my husband's grandmother.  I always wanted to sew this dress but the pattern size was too small for me.  Making a doll with the vintage dress pattern is a great alternative for vintage sewing fans.  Now when I go thrift store shopping I look at vintage sewing patterns in a new light.
