What was your inspiration?
I wanted a dress with fullness suitable for a bed doll.

The fullness of skirt and sleeves means this isn't a quick project, but worth it in the end. I wouldn't use this pattern for a baby because of the embellishments (easily swallowed) and the open, lacy stitches (little toes could easily get caught up) and the bulkiness of the skirt. This is modelled on a 24" doll.
