Nissa dress


This is Nissa. She lives in a small country in Africa in an orphanage with about 19 other children. Nissa is a Heavenly Princess, but she doesn’t get to dress like one.


This is the Nissa dress. Every cent earned from the sale of dresses made in this style will go to help Nissa and the other children who live with her. My goal is not only to offer this dress in doll sizes, but in girls’ sizes as well. Each dress will be made in the same general style (halter top, long, full skirt, elastic waist) but will be one-of-a-kind in fabric and embellishments.

Mom’s Edwardian Apron

Inspiration: I love the look of the Sense and Sensibility Edwardian apron pattern, so when Mrs. Chancey gave me a free e-pattern for advertising them, I immediately decided to get this one.
Materials: Fabric from the stash (bequeathed to me by my neighbor when she passed away), prepackaged bias tape, and the S&S pattern.
Construction: I basically followed the directions on this one, except that I changed the way the back was done. Being scared off by having to bind an inside corner, I decided to hem the “back belt piece” which made the construction much easier. The detail picture shows better than I could explain.
