"Sunflowers" for Larger Himstedt Dolls by OCL
Pauline is modeling "Harvest House" a 2 piece ensemble designed to fit slim Himstedt dolls with a chest/waist measurement of up to 16 1/2 inches. The finished length of the dress is 16" from base of neck to bottom of the skirt.
A soft sage green cotton was used for the sleeves and collar on this adorable Fall dress. It has the design of Fall leaves in a slightly darker green. A light cream venise lace trims the edge of the sleeves and collar.
The pinafore style dress is made from a patchwork print of pumpkins, owls, leaves and a barn with a sign that reads "Harvest House". The bodice of the dress was made seperate from the pinafore then attached. This makes it look more like it is 2 pieces then 1. The bodice is then accented with 3 wooden heart buttons.
The dress buttons all the way down the back and the hem of the full skirt has been sewn in by hand with nearly invisible stitches.
Under her dress Pauline is modeling a pair of bloomers made from the same soft sage green fabric as was used in the dress. The bloomers have an encased elastic waist and the legs are trimmed with a cream venise lace.
