My pink-haired Basaak doll, Tabitha, arrived in a very ugly and badly made red dress, which I hated.

She has spent the last few months in various borrowed clothes, but I thought it would be nice for her to have her very own dress.

So here is the first thing sewn on my new SilverCrest sewing machine.


It is a very simple dress. The top is a simple bodice shape, cut out twice and stitched together. This means the bodice is lined and all the edges are very tidy. The skirt is just a rectangle with a gathered top, stitched to the bottom of the bodice.

I haven’t yet put any fasteners on the back, it will have a couple of press studs soon.

She is also wearing one a little butterfly charm.  This was originally attached to a pen and came in a cheap set for parties from my local supermarket.
