I just checked and I used the last of the ones I had on a dress for Jana’s Bitty Baby, but here is a link to some that are just like the ones I had. The local fabric store has had buttons on at 50% lately for members, so I stocked up to keep an assortment on hand. I hope they still have more of these ones! They are moving to a new location at the end of August so I know they are trying to sell off inventory prior to that happening.
I don’t like the cloth bodies so much. They don’t look as good in clothes that are open at the neck, unless they have a vinyl upper chest, like the Madame Alexander dolls. The cloth bodies make them cuddly, though, so it’s nice for small children.
All I did was fold the fabric over so the lines matched up and press it that way, so that when I put the pattern pieces down on it, the lines would pretty much be in the same places on both pieces. Then I didn’t worry about it anymore.
That’s a pretty Hannah, Heather, and she really suits the red. I love the red panel down the front! I agree with Andrea that a row of tiny buttons or maybe a bow or something in the panel would finish it off nicely.
I must get sewing again… it is summer here and somehow I seem busier than ever. I need to find time to cut something out.
Thanks for posting!
That is so pretty Heather! I love the detail in the pattern. What about a row of little white or cream ( can’t tell with my eyes which it should be) flower buttons down the front of her dress on the red? I have some shank buttons that are tiny little roses that would be perfect. Or a ribbon bow with rosette in the V of the collar? It is super cute and looks great with her hair. That style suits her very well.
