Midweek with Marion

Hello, Dear Ones and welcome to Midweek with Marion!
 I realized Marion didn't have any outside casual clothes to wear while she goes birdwatching! Lord, have mercy! So, I went to town and made her some little slacks and a sleeveless top.
 This little sleeveless top is most comfortable and cool and spiced up a little bit with some pretty little flowery lace. She really loves this.
 I made her some comfy little slacks to go with her top. Notice the pressed pant legs. I'm so talented like that you know! :) It really does pay to press all of your inside seams as you sew. Everything just looks so much nicer when you're finished. The little pressed edge in the center of her pant legs is just a little extra and I think makes them look nicer.



Well, looks like Marion found a little birdie and I'm sure her new outfit helped! You know it did.
I just love to share the patterns I use for the doll clothes in case you see an outfit you would like to make. The one I made for Marion today is the little pants outfit in the lower right hand corner. I loved the fabric colors on the pattern so much I decided to use some fabric I had that was very similar.
Remember to pop over to my friend Diane's blog Welcome To Lavender Dreams to see what she's dolled up today!

Hoped you've enjoyed Midweek with Marion today and will come back next Wednesday for another outfit! 

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Hello, I Love You

 Hello, I love you, won't you tell me your name?
Hello, I love you, let me jump in your game
Hello, I love you, won't you tell me your name?
Hello, I love you, let me jump in your game
She's walking down the street
Blind to every eye she meets
Do you think you'll be the guy
To make the queen of the angels sigh?
Hello, I love you, won't you tell me your name?
Hello, I love you, let me jump in your game
Hello, I love you, won't you tell me your name?
Hello, I love you, let me jump in your game
She holds her head so high, like a statue in the sky
Her arms are wicked, and her legs are long
When she moves my brain screams out this song
Sidewalk crouches at her feet
Like a dog that begs for something sweet
Do you hope to make her see, you fool?
Do you hope to pluck this dusky jewel?
Hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello
I want you, hello, I need my baby
Hello, hello, hello, hello
~ sung by The Doors

  3. How cute! I made the little dress on this pattern. But I don't have the part for the sleeveless top. And I love it! You have found some cute fabric for your outfits, too. This is so summery and sweet. I have my post up this morning too! See you soon! Have a fun day. Sweet hugs, Diane

  8. Good morning, when I was at my moms, I had fun showing her my favorite blogs. She loved your blog, especially the Marion's posts. Reminded her of when she made dolly clothes too. Enjoy the day, Kathleen in Az

  10. What a cute birdwatcher!! I'm enjoying seeing all the clothes that you and Diane are sewing up for your little ladies this summer. Cute birdwatching outfit. I can see that my own wardrobe is seriously deficient in that department! :-) I like your choice of fabric and the cute daisies down the front. And the crease in the pants makes it casual but dignified. CUTE!

  17. You girls are sure having fun sewing for your dolls this summer! I like your little stories. I have 18" hard body dolls, "Ann Estelle". They are so cute. I've been quilting all summer. It's fun to get back to sewing, isn't it?!!

  23. You ladies are so talented. I do a little quilting but I did try to make a doll outfit once and it was the last time, lol! So I truly appreciate the amazing work that you are doing! :) Another adorable outfit ....now don't forget to pick up some sunflower seeds next time Marian's shopping!

  25. I love Marion's little outfit today! I think Ellen needs one like that for herself. (I sound like Donald Trump talking about myself in the third person.)

  28. These cute little outfits remind me so much of the clothing my mother sewed for my sister and me when we were growing up. So cute!

  30. I press EVERYTHING!! Lol!! I love to iron......most people think that's crazy I know. The outfits are so adorable and 1000 times cuter and better made than the ones they sell for our granddaughters dolls like that

  31. I think Marion looks absolutely adorable for her bird watching adventure. The fabric in the slacks coordinates perfectly with the floral pattern of the shirt. Beautiful work Shelia! My dollies arrived from my Ebay purchase yesterday. I can't wait to get started on outfits for them.
