Midweek with Marion

Hello, Dear Ones and welcome to Midweek with Marion. Babbette was too busy playing this week and didn't want to try on any new clothes so I left her to her toys and made Marion a new outfit.
 I decided to make Marion this little playsuit. Isn't it sweet?
 I used this pretty fabric, red, gray and white and added the tiny little red and white check for the accents. Red buttons down the front for some cuteness.
 The red checked fabric was used for the puff sleeves and the little border at the ends of the legs.
 Here's the pattern I used and you can see the playsuit at the top left. Now I've used this pattern before, a dress, and it fit her just fine. But I should have measured her from the shoulder to her straddle because it's a little tight. Good thing she's a doll because if she were a real little girl she would not be too comfy in this outfit I'm afraid. So I marked my pattern pieces in case I make this again to lengthen the straddle. That sounds funny doesn't it? 'The straddle' is what my mother always called this area so I do too! 
We're through now, Marion. What? Oh, okay. She wants me to mention how pretty her hair looks combed into a side ponytail. What? Yes, darling, they all think your hair looks lovely! Dolls! What cha gonna do? :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you wih a little Note Song ~

She Lets Her Hair Down

 She walks barefoot through the meadow early in the mornin'
Early in the mornin' ev'ry day
And she wakes up the sleepin' flowers early in the mornin'
Early in the mornin' on the way

And she lets her hair down when the sun comes up
Yes, she lets her hair down
And the morning glows bright with a newborn light
Yes, the morning glows bright

She goes walkin' past my window early in the mornin'
Early in the mornin' on the way
Some day I'll reach out and touch her early in the mornin'
Early in the mornin' one fine day

And I'll give her my love till the day I die
Yes, I'll give her my love
And the morning glows bright with a newborn light
Yes, the morning glows bright

She walks barefoot through the meadow early in the mornin'
Early in the mornin' ev'ry day

And the morning glows bright with a newborn light
Yes, the morning glows bright

And I'll give her my love till the day I die
Yes, I'll give her my love

And she lets her hair down when the sun comes up
Yes, she lets her hair down

And she lets her hair down when the sun comes up
Yes, she lets her hair down
