Grace in White Eyelet

Do you remember nighties made with eyelet fabric? It was always so cool and pretty in the summertime.


Here’s Grace in her new nightgown.

I found the pattern HERE and it was quick and easy.


She has a pretty silk flower in her hair.


And since the long gown had holes ‘eyelets’ here and there, Grace felt she needed a white slip.


So I just made a simple slip to go under her gown.

Shelia at Note Songs is sewing for 18 inch dollies this summer too and making the cutest little outfits. You can visit her HERE.


The angel Grace is holding is from my blog buddy JoAnn HERE.


Grace is a petite 18 inch doll made by the Doll Maker, a Florida artist Linda Rick HERE.

Thanks for joining Wednesday Wee Ones.

And don’t forget to

take time to PLAY and SING!

Hi Diane! Oh dolly is so pretty! I love the eyelet and it makes a beautiful little gown. That was a great idea to make the slip too! She is gorgeous and love her sweet face and pretty hair. Thank you so much for mentioning me. I'll go back and had you to my blog. If you are going to do dolly stuff every Wednesday, I'd love to just go ahead and add you to my post each week. Let me know because this is so much fun.
Be a sweetie,

Gracie looks so pretty in her white dress.
You are not going to believe it but yesterday I received the 'broderie Anglaise' fabric I ordered.(Now thanks to you I know that it is called white eyelet in English).
I am going to use it to make an outfit for some dolls.
Have fun with your dolls!

Your sewing is so beautiful, Diane! I love crisp, white cotton nighties like this, Grace is very lucky!
Happy week.

Hi Diane. The dress is so pretty. It made me think of the little summer tops we wore when we were little, the ones where our bellies were bare. I haven't sewn doll clothes. I imagine it's great fun! Yours is such a dear.
