A sun dress and a cardigan, of course.

One of the lovely board members on AGFMB was kind enough to share her sun dress pattern and direct a sew along. Thanks so much Marilyn! 

I had just barely enough orange left over from the birthday dress for my son's friend to make this. It was nip and tuck. I had to change the bottom band a bit, but it worked out exactly.

The print on the brown fabric is maybe a touch large for doll scale but it seems not too bad. I changed a few things about the pattern along the way. The back fastens with snaps instead of velcro, and it has fixed shoulder straps instead of a halter.

It wouldn't be much of an entry today without sharing this new cardigan.  It's the fourth of 5 colors of merino wool I bought earlier. Chocolate brown, though it looks a bit washed out in the pictures. It's still wet from blocking, and it needs buttons. I'll post a modeled completed pictured of it tomorrow before it ships out to it's owner.

Bonus sneak peek....

It's another cardigan, but this one is a raglan sleeve design.  The wool is sock weight by Kaffe Fassett.
