Bloomer...Sooner! and a little bonus at the end

(That title was specifically for my friend, Pam.)


Bloomers...check! These were so much fun to make. So easy. So cute. Miss Isabel will be complete and looking like a full-fledged pioneer.

The whole package!

NOW, for that little bonus. Once I had finished the bloomers, I called Isabel and we had a good visit. I asked her if there was anything else she could think of that I could do for her. She thought for a while then, later in the conversation, she said "I thought of something you could do. It would be fun if my American Girl doll looked like me." I told her I probably couldn't get that done by this Saturday. She was very understanding so, I said I'd make the doll an apron.

Well, one thing led to another until...




...you KNEW I'd do it didn't you? I had a blast last night trying to make the pattern up. Luckily, all of my daughter's American Girl dolls are still here at the house so I had a "body" to measure.

Now, I am done. I'm content with this darling outfit.





...unless the doll needs a bonnet!
