I decided to give her an apron in a print close to the color of her shoes. I found a tiny pattern in the book "The Collector's Book of Dolls' Clothes" by Evelyn Coleman, enlarging it about 410% and making up my own instructions. It's lined, and has interfacing sandwiched in between for some stiffness.

It's about time I dressed this girl. This is the first doll I made in Dixie's workshop. Her dress is made from homespun fabric in a deep green color, sewn by both machine and by hand. I may add something like an apron, collar, shawl, or similar to add some interest. I didn't stay true to the era with her dress, using snap closures (I know that's cheating).
