Violet's Signature Dress

I mentioned in my last post that a dear friend was making a very special dress for Violet.  It arrived a few days ago and it is amazing!   I am so thankful to have such wonderful dolly friends, but some dolly friends go way beyond that.  Our friendship goes much deeper than appreciating dolls.  I am very blessed!

Isn't it beautiful!  She made the dress from fabric covered with violets.  How perfect!  I love the colors on her.  She even sent a gorgeous silk ribbon for her hair.   The sweet friend who made this dress is Jenny Anderson.   She is mega talented and truly can do anything!  

While discussing Violet's measurements, she made a bodice and sent it to me to try on her for a test fit.  It fit very nicely.  When she sent the violets dress, she also sent me enough fabric to add a skirt to the bodice.  So Violet got a gorgeous fancy dress and a play dress.  Thank you so much, Jenny!

And here's another photo, just because!   See all the pretty details?   Violet looks extra happy in her special dress.

I have lots to share if, I can find the time to do it.   Hopefully soon.

Blessings to you!

Thanks Lorraine! :o)
I am so behind in my blog reading as well as writing. Hubby was in a bad car crash last week and I am doing a lot of driving back and forth for him and my granddaughter. Hubby is okay, but very sore, deep tissue bruising of the chest wall. He is lucky to be alive.
