I have finally got around to taking proper photos of my precious Gwendolen in this yellow dress that I crocheted a few years ago! I love how it suits her. I got the idea for this dress in one of the books about crocheting for girls (though the one I saw was dark blue and had a much simpler pattern of the main body of the dress). This dress took me quite a long time to finish, so I would never consider making it again, but I love it. It closes on the shoulders with buttons.
When I had my doll shop, I took Gwendolen as a model to various fairs, and quite a few people asked me if I would sell this dress. But I wanted it for myself, of course.
