Cornflower Blues

I love this fabric.

I call these colors cornflower blues.


Zeta thinks it’s still warm enough in Florida to go ‘barefoot’!


I took her into my ocean blue bathroom for her photo shoot.


Don’t you love the back of this little apron?

Here’s the pattern.


(notice the notation! lol)

It was even hard to get on her. My hubby had to help me dress her! haha!


JoAnn and I both made something from this fabric.

Visit her HERE to see her latest creation.

Candy has been sewing Fall outfits for her dolls. Visit her HERE to see a beautiful Fall jacket and skirt and a Halloween costume.

Hello Diane,
Wow you made such a cute apron for your doll. I love that pretty fabric you chose too. You do such a great job with sewing and the dolls are always dressed so cute.
Wishing you a wonderful rest of the week.
Thanks too for sharing this with us at Cooking and Crafting with J & J.

Oh Miss Zeta is so darling in her blues. We came close today to making the same outfit - funny thing though - we reversed the use - my dress is the other fabric and my ruffle is reverse of yours - we sure did a good job this time. I love love love that pattern - it may just be the only pattern around that I don't have. Hee hee. Her picnic basket is cute too and the rick rack is just the thing - I like how it is in the seam. I used to make little outfits like this for our daughters when they were little - they wore the apron part as a sunsuit - but I didn't have trouble getting the outfit on the girls. This is a cute cute cute cute outfit. Happy sewing for Halloween my dear friend.Candy is going to have a post today too.

That is so sweet, Diane. I love the color. I think she is very happy in her new apron :)

Susie said...

Diane, I love that blue. My daughter used to have a blue dress with a thing like that over it. I called it a pinafore. Wish I could go barefoot again. I used to never wear shoes in the I will not walk anywhere with shoes...I am an old lady tender foot. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

I too love that color blue and I love coordinating fabrics like you did. I want a pattern like that in adult size as I am looking for a cobbler type apron pattern. I think it would be a great addition to my "retirement uniform"! LOL!

Hi Diane! Zeta looks adorable in her dress and her apron. You really are talented. It is really kind of your husband to have helped you with dressing up little Zeta.
Regarding the barefoot part, Zeta and Marietta could be best friends. Marietta is the only one of my dolls who doesn't feel like wearing shoes at the moment. They are free spirits, aren't they?
Keep having fun with your dollies!

Your posts are always a delight! Growing up with a grandmother who sewed doll clothes and had a ginormous doll collection, you have really taken me back in time with a lot of sweet memories.

Diane, she is so adorable. I love the back of the dress.

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

So sweet. Zeta looks lovely in her new blue apron! Great job!

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

So the colors!

Susan said...

Oh my gosh, how utterly adorable. I cannot believe how talented you are! I could never do that. Such a little sweetheart of a doll. Susan

Zeta looks adorable in her Cornflower blue pinafore apron and dress. I love this fabric! The blue outfit looks fabulous posed with the seashells and the blue walls really shows off the pattern in the dress. The pattern has some very pretty little outfits pictured, I would love to have that pattern.

I will be ready for next week with costumes for my dolls. Of course Little Jo is still in her costume (I can't get off of her - hehehe).

NanaDiana said...

That is SOOOO cute, Diane. I made dresses for my girls with a pattern similar to that when they were little. I love that fabric and you do a beautiful job of sewing. You need a few granddaughters to sew for! xo Diana

bj said...

I am "playing" in the new greenhouse. SOOOOO coming out next week.


Pero que bonito vestido!!!!!!

I hope that you're making her a blanket, Diane. She couldn't possibly picnic on the grass with these pretty dress and apron.

Boopnut said...

So cute! If I had a little girl grandchild, I would love to sew for her. Last thing I remember, is a repro "Cabbage Patch" doll, a "Snuggles," and things like that.

ann said...

Pretty darn cute. I didn't realize that Simplicity has such a selection of cool patterns. I must get the dollhouse out of my system and start sewing. I am finishing up major projects and have the third floor yet to do, which I may let get until after the first of the year. You girls are doing such beautiful work.

Diane, love that apron! My grandmother wore one very similar. Zeta is such a lucky girl to have such a sweet seamstress for a mama.

You are cordially invited to enter my Sweet Christmas Card Drawing! :-)

That's a cute apron! I like how you marked the pattern for future ;) I made some doll clothes from my mom's old patterns, and boy! talk about details, details, details! I've made clothes for myself that were easier to sew up!

I don't think I've ever seen those birds before! Love those bright pretty yellow flowers! How often do y'all go hike?

I hope that your husband survived, LOL! This is adorable...they always are...I get a kick out of them each week! :)
