I had grandiose ideas of making everyone new Easter outfits, but like the old woman in the shoe, I have so many children I don't know what to do. So only the Liv doll got an outfit and that was because of the dress we found at Goodwill Bargain Bin.
I thought it was a skirt when I got it and realized later it's a dress. It actually looks like a nightgown and I didn't think it was attractive. So I revamped it by using the neckline for the waist and sewing from the waist to the hem, bypassing the armholes. Then it turned out the waist was a tiny bit too small, so I had to reposition the velcro (there wasn't time for her to go on a diet). By the time I got done, I realized I probably could have made her a whole new skirt in the time it took me to redo this one.

This is a skirt I made her from a blouse Mrs. Smith gave me to use for doll clothes. I made a dress for Chardonnay out of it too.
Here she is dressed in a pair of jeans and a dolman top, both handy items of clothing that we had picked up because you never know who will need clothes.
She is probably the closest thing I'll ever get to a ball-jointed doll, unless they start turning up in thrift stores.
