A few months before my niece's first birthday I decided I was going to make her a rag doll. She loved stuffed her animals so I figured a rag doll would be perfect! Fun and cuddly, a bit different than anything she already had - and something I could make!

It was about 9 o'clock the night before my sister's Regency birthday party. My sister and I were hanging out in the living room at my parents' and discussing everyone's costumes for the following evening. We shortly came to the glaringly obvious fact that our sister-in-law did not have a regency, or even a regency-ish, dress.
Well, I'd had a cup of coffee that evening so I was more awake than I typically am at 9pm, and this extra energy led me to the suggestion:
"Why don't we make her a quick drawstring dress? I'm sure we've got a suitable pattern and fabric around here somewhere."
My sister thought this was a brilliant idea, so we ran down to the basement to start going through my stash.
On our way to the basement I called my sister-in-law to get a couple of quick questions answered;
-Approximant bust measurement
-Favorite colors to wear
With this info we were ready to get started!

As I mentioned yesterday, I made my sister a new Regency era dress to wear to her Regency Dinner Party birthday party.
After months of dreaming and brainstorming, coming up with ideas and rejecting them, this dress finally began when I sent my sister to my fabric stash and told her to pick a fabric.
