We are planning to have a small doll play-date with two friends and their dolls to celebrate Valentine's Day this year. My girls were dressing their dolls in anything RED or PINK, trying to make them look as festive as possible. I had been looking online at some of the cute Valentines dresses available, and didn't want to spend so much money on a doll dress (I had just picked up the cute Coconut PJ's for my girls, and wanted to do Valentine's on a budget) I was sorting clothes in my girls dresser, when I came across this cute T-shirt that was too small for my older daughter and had a stain on the sleeve so I thought it would be perfect to use to make a doll dress.
I began by laying Julie on the shirt to determine how long and wide to make the dress. I ended up cutting a rectangle from the corner.
Here you can see how I cut a slit in the existing side seam, to make an armhole.
