I wanted to finish these dresses (for DGD and her doll) in June but could not, so they became July’s goal.  They are now in the mail!

    Becky, that is so sweet. I am sure she will love the matching dress for dolly.

    The dresses are adorable--pink is so feminine.  I'm sure your granddaughter will love them!

      Thanks, Emily wears dresses ALL the time, but she takes ALL the clothes off her dolls!  So when she mentioned matching dresses for "Molly" I jumped at the opportunity to encourage "modesty" in dolls.  LOL

        I think it is a great way to make her want to keep the dollies clothes on!  Kids are so funny!  It's very typical of kids to leave clothes off of dolls, they don't think of them as "naked" like we do. ha ha

         I remember being upset when dgd's expensive doll was very dirty and I commented that if she kept the clothes on, the doll would stay cleaner.  We cleaned her up, dressed her, and dgd took the dress back off because she didn't want the dress to get dirty!  She had an entire wardrobe for the doll, but in her mind the clothes were what she wanted to take special care of.  Who knew? 

         My dd's insight into this: DGD's best friend's mother was always fussing about keeping her clothes perfect so the little girl wasn't allowed to play the way the other kids did, this was dgd's way of working this out in her own way.  (Thank goodness she didn't tell her friend to just take off her clothes!)  btw, that little girl is a teenager now and very defiant about clothes and makeup!  She loves to push her mom's buttons.

         It's a good example of how thier "perception" of the world is different than older children and adult's.  I remember a friend of my mothers got upset when she saw me taking clothes off a stuffed monkey that didn't even come with clothes, she acted shocked.  I never forgot how odd that seemed to me as a child.  I knew she was shaming me but I didn't undersand why.
