Nicoles' Easter Dress

I haven't posted pics of Nicole in a while....and she wanted you all to see her Easter dress.....we lucked out and got this one for free.  I had ordered some supplies for my shop from one of the doll stores on-line...and when it came they added this dress as a thank you....It was perfect for Nicole!!!!  Reminds me a little of Molly's Birthday Dress.

Today's Girl...

You can see more outfits on Etsy www.etsy.com/shop/prairiewindgirls
I had an absolute blast designing and making Molly's most recent Today's Girl outfit....I found the slinky knit, and knew I had to make a top out of it, added a touch of lace,  then I found the Knit denim to match....and was overjoyed when I found the sneakers!!!!  She is off to friends to work on new routines for the Dance Squad at school....Dancin' the Night Away!!!

Finally...

Meet Miss Josefina Montoya...
More of Josefina's Outfits on www.etsy.com/shop/prairiewindgirls
I know...it seemed to take me forever..but Josefina's Meet outfit is finally done....and it is so pretty and festive....Starts with her Camasia...a peasant blouse that goes down to her knees...kinda like Kirsten's and Felicity's Chemise.  Then there is a fun red, full skirt, trimmed in white Ric-rak.  Her waist is tied with a black sash, and on her feet are soft moccasins.  Lastly, under it all are snowy white drawers.  Her hair is tied with a bright blue ribbon, and a flower is tucked in....I can't wait to make more of her outfits!!!

Hmmmm....who do I sew for next....I think we need another Today's Girl Outfit....and I think Molly is next in line....what do you think Molly likes to wear when she is not in a photo shoot?
