Anne of Green Gables Doll Dress

I love Anne of Green Gables and have been wanting to make a doll outfit like this for a while! I used the "Carrots" pattern by Luminaria Designs from Pixie Faire which was very easy and straightforward. I used some quilting cotton from Joann's for for the dress, a fat quarter for the pinafore, and I bought the hat off of Amazon and decorated it with some spare ribbon from my stash.



The only thing I did that  I hadn't done before was the Peter Pan collar, which turned out really cute! I must have done something wrong because it doesn't lay totally flat, even after vigorous ironing. I know about understitching but I don't really understand it very well, so I think I must have done it wrong. Oops.

The back has some false buttons sewed over the velcro closure.  (I seriously hate making button holes!) I also cheated a little bit and used the bloomers that I made previously for the prairie girl dresses, since you can't see them. I don't need 5 pairs of bloomers for dolls, after all.



Lastly, the pattern came with a design for a cute little carpet bag! It's not as cute or intricate as the ones sold by American girl way back when, but I like it! There's something really fun about little doll sized accessories like this. I want to make a doll duffel bag sometime too!
