Gwendolen in yellow

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.

  1. The yellow dress looks perfect on Gwendolen, it really suits her colouring as she looks like she has such a sunny disposition! Very pretty!

    1. Alice, thank you very much! It took me a month or so – on and off – as far as I remember! Not one of my fastest projects! You can learn how to make something similar, too. Would you like to? It’s not hard, it just takes time!

  2. That’s a really gorgeous dress and it suits Gwendolen very well. Beautiful, and I understand you wouldn’t want to sell it.

  3. Это узнаваемое платье уже часть истории твоих кукольных нарядов, Олечка!!! Конечно оно должно остаться и если захочется, то можно будет всегда скопировать)))

    1. Леночка, спасибо большое! Вот уж точно ты заметила – это платье уже и правда история! Очень его люблю.
