Holiday Dresses for Dolls

This is holidays season and so my daughter decided her dolls needed to renew their wardrobe to celebrate in style.

So I went through my stash and it wasn't that hard to find a few things that could be used to make new doll dresses...

This is a simple crochet rectangle, sewn to create a tube, and the gathered ribbon comes on top.

For one below I used the same method for the crochet, and then just added the ribbon bow and ties.

And this one was a last minute inspiration. It's actually made out of one of my daughter's old ballet skirts...
