First Communion dress for Molly

Yesterday was my second daughter’s very special day – she had the First Holy Communion. I didn’t make her own dress for the occasion as I did for her sister 4 years ago but I made a matching dress for her new American Girl doll Molly.

The dress is made from exactly the same fabric as the First Communion dresses for my eldest daughter and her doll. That is, it’s white satin and white lace. The dress is lined and has an underskirt with a tulle ruffle to create a lift for the skirt. The dress closes at the back with snaps.

I could make this dress into a pattern if there is interest.

The First Communion event was in my daughter’s school so I took Molly’s photos on the school grounds ahead of the day.

    Very beautiful dress! Would make a nice wedding or bridesmaid dress also.

      Thank you, Sherry. Yes, I’ve been thinking along the same lines, too. It could also be a special occasion dress (in a different colour).

    Did you ever have the opportunity to make this pattern? I would like this one for grand daughters doll.

      Hello Della. Hmm… no, I didn’t. Tudor dresses took over and occupied my time. I’ll see if I can find the pattern pieces and will consider making the pattern.
