Brianna

I love this pattern by Thimbles and Acorns so much that I really wanted to make the dress for one of my dolls. I really hope this pattern will become available for A Girl for All Time dolls.

Anyway, it’s a dress from the 1770s called En Forreau. I’ve found some really lovely blue fabric in my stash and made this gown for my red-head American Girl doll. I have even decided to change this doll’s name to suit the dress!! She used to be called Jessica, but now she is Brianna Fraser. The dress consists of 3 parts: the blue linen petticoat (or underskirt), the cotton gown and white batiste fichu (neckerchief).

    1. Света, спасибо большое! Я тоже обожаю эти цвета. Когда увидела их в продаже (по отдельности, в совершенно разных местах и даже странах!), то схватила сразу же!!

  1. Очень красиво!!! Рассмотрела, что на спинке сплошные застрочки… Интересный крой http://www.swish-swirl.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_good.gif

    1. Спасибо, Таня! Да, там спинка закладывается в складки до талии. Это такой аутентичный покрой в то время был.
