This little dress was fun to make and I used it to make the first button holes I have done in years. I never had to wear school uniforms but my dolls do so this was just what I was looking for. The pattern was nicely written and fits my doll great.

This shirt turned out really cute. It was time-consuming to make the details right and I was intimidated by making those tiny button holes but it was well worth the angst and they look great even if I say so myself. This looks like a real shirt with all of the details including the box pleated back. Now for the necktie...
