I dress dolls for my local chapter of the Salvation Army’s Christmas Toy Shop. Every year we give away 600 – 700 dressed Springfield dolls to area children. To make the project a bit more fun for the doll dressers we add an element of competition by judging the dolls in six or seven theme categories.
I have used your 1860’s Day Dress and your Laura and Mary patterns for our “Old Fashioned or Yesterday’s Little Girl” .
For the “Bridal” category, I adapted the “Bib Front Regency Dress”.
The patterns used by Penny are Thimbles and Acorns #1810-01 “Bib Front Regency Dress”, Thimbles and Acorns #1860-01 “Civil War Era Day Dress”, and Thimbles and Acorns #1880-01 “Mary and Laura”.
