We are still in a hand-sewing kick around here. This one was almost entirely sewn by Delia. It's made from Mimi Kirchner's excellent friend Kitty ODF pattern. The dress was made by my mom for my Mandy doll, from about 1978. The neck on the dress is a bit small, but from the front it looks just fine. We hand-sewed this kitty doll, but the directions call for stitching by machine. I had felted the heck out of a sweater and the weave was so tight, using a whip stitch by hand was really easy.
