I made a new dress for Laura! This is the dress from the Thimbles and Acorns 18 Inch Cloth Doll Pattern.
This pattern has lots of items that you can make! You can make a 18 inch Charlotte rag doll, a mini Charlotte doll, dresses for both, and a tote bag.
So far, I only made the dress. It is so easy to make! As you can see in the picture above, the dress only has three pieces.
This is a great dress for a beginner to make. Even for more experiences seamstresses, it is fun to have a project that goes together so quickly!
I do think that the sleeves could be just a bit longer in order to reach the wrists, though.
Laura looks perfectly beautiful in the dress.
One day I will make her a mini Charlotte rag doll from this pattern as well.
Did you know, though, that Charlotte was not the name of Laura's doll in real life?
Her real doll was called Roxy. The doll's name was changed in the books.
For more facts like these, I recommend Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography.
