Midweek With Marion

Hello, Dear Ones and welcome to Midweek With Marion. I'm so glad you've popped in.
 I've had a little talk with Marion and now she does realize all of these clothes are not really for her but for Ruby Sparkles. I have promised to make her something special latter on. Okie dokie, that is settled. Here you see her in another sweet little simple dress and I really love this fabric.
 I didn't add lace. I didn't even add a placket with buttons. I didn't add a ruffle. I didn't even use contrasting fabric. Just kept it really simple because I thought the busy fabric was enough.
Here's the pattern and I made the little dress in the tome right had corner. I see more little outfits that will be made by my dainty fingers. Hope you've liked this little dress and I'll see you next week. I truly hope you're enjoying this little series as I am so enjoying sharing it with you! Pop on over to my friend Diana's blog Welcome To Lavender Dreams to check out her dolls!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Easy Come, Easy Go (Lord, have mercy! Bobby Sherman was so cute) :)

Takin the shade out of the sun
Whatever made me think that I was number one
I oughta know easy come, easy go
Sittin' it out, spinnin' the dial
Thinkin' about the chump I've been
I have to smile
Didn't I know easy come, easy go
She wasn't kind, I wasn't smart
I lost my mind and fell apart
I had to find myself in time
Now I can start all over again
Hangin' around takin' it slow
Happy I found
I still can smile and dig the show
Lettin' me know easy come, easy go

  1. Simple is better sometimes. Don't you get amused sometimes out in public when you spot a woman who seems to be wearing every bit of jewelry she owns and layers and layers of clothing that doesn't match? I can appreciate the simpleness of your doll dress. I like to make doll dresses myself. Little girls wore dresses when i was growing up back in the 1950s. Little girls were sent home from school if they showed up in jeans, etc. I think women in America have lost some of their sense of femininity. Your doll dresses remind me of my childhood and the dresses I wore to elementary school. Two thumbs up.

  2. You dear, sweet and talented lady, oh my!!! Your sewing skills are just incredible! What a precious little dress, lucky little doll~
    Hope you have a great day, sweet friend!

  3. So pretty, looks like a sweet church dress. Your pattern has lots of choices. Oh and glad Marion now understands about sharing ;)


  4. How CUTE! I love this fabric too and you find the best patterns. (I keep buying more patterns! lol) She looks like she's ready for a party....we'll be right over! I have my dollie post up now too! See you soon! Sweet hugs, Diane

  5. I LOVE that fabric!!! I'd like a dress made out of that! You and Diane have been sewing up a storm! Keep up the good work.

  6. Beautiful fabric on Miss Marion's are right, nothing more needed! Simply adorable :)

  7. That is gorgeous frills needed ; the dress and pattern are perfect as is!

  8. She looks adorable! Oh do let her keep the dress, it suits her, and it's not too fancy. You can always make another, right? Beautiful!

  9. I am glad that you have sorted things out with Marion! This dress is very pretty too, Ruby Sparkles is going to be a very lucky doll isn't she! xx

  10. I agree - the fabric is the star of the show. Love the shoes too. I have that same pattern and have made a few items from it - with more to come for sure. I'm happy to link your post on mine at . It is fun to have dollie sewing friends - almost like our own little dollie party - even though we are miles and miles apart.

  11. Love the fabric! That would be a cute little dress for my youngest grandgirl, age 4. Well, now that you have things straight with Marion I guess we can go on with life now! LOL! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  12. I think that doll has a better wardrobe than me! lol

    All those clothes are so cute :)


  13. Shelia, that shade of blue is elegant and restful, too.

    Could I borrow some of those sweet dresses for church? :-)

    Hugs, Barb

  20. The dress is so cute and you are very talented, Shelia...Christine

  21. Shelia, Marion is so sweet in her little gown, you really must make another one for her to keep as soon as possible. I am visiting from JoAnn's "Wednesday Wee Ones" post at Scene through my eyes. How delightful to see this lovely creation that you have made for Ruby Sparkles. I am going to oil my sewing machine and download some patterns and join the fun as soon as my dollies that I ordered on Ebay get here.


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
