    DD's 7th birthday is tomorrow, the 21st, so I set about making her a new dress for the Raggedy Ann doll I made her 3 years ago. She mentioned in passing a few weeks ago that Raggedy Ann was "growing out of her dress" and since she's had that dress for the past 3 years, I thought it was time to make her a new one. I used DD's 2 favorite fabrics and then wrapped them for tomorrow.

    What a hoot! She's lucky to have you & your lovely dress will make her so happy. Love your doll, have her twin that my Sis made many years ago & her calico dress is very faded and her pantaloons need new elastic, but she has given lots of hugs to lots of little ones.

    Yes. I made it 3 years ago for her birthday with a cute, blue polka dot dress. The doll's been loved so much that she's undergone 2 surgeries to reattach arms and hair. :lol:

    I am currently working on a Raggedy Ann and Andy. I was shocked at the price of the pattern at JoAnns so waited till I got a 50% off and still had to pay too much. Will post it when I get done.

    I bought my pattern at Wal-Mart and then traced all the pieces onto stockier kraft paper so that they would keep for years. It takes about half a day to do that to patterns but it keeps them longer than the frail tissue paper and I don't need to cut away larger sizes, which will be useful later, to get to the smaller sizes. If I trace each size, then I'll have them for when my kids reach the larger sizes and won't have to rebuy the pattern for each size. I don't duplicate for others, though, for copyright purposes, so I don't think it's wrong to do so.

    Here she is with her new dress and old dolly. I ended up giving it to her early so that she could sleep with her on her last night as a 6 year old.
