Baby With the Blue Dress On!

Hello, Dear Ones! Well as promised I'm going to show you today a little blue dress I made for Babbette.
 Isn't this so sweet? I love how it turned out. I forgot to take a picture of the pattern I used but it was an old 1940s or so pattern that was remade and brought back and fits the Bitty Baby or other 15" dolls.
 I know, I know that's some honkin' big rick rack, but it's what I had. Babbette doesn't mind. Isn't the little collar so cute. You don't know how much joy I get making these little doll clothes.
 Well, as you can see Babbette needs some shoes! :) But she does have some cute little toes.
She is very proud of her little dress and wanted to show it to you one more time. Sorry I'm not too creative with my background but I'm up in my sewing room and this is the best place to snap. Once I'm upstairs Mr. Precious won't let me come back down the stairs without him. I have sneaked down by myself a few times but don't tell him!  :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Devil With The Blue Dress On

 Devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress
Devil with the blue dress on
Devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress
Devil with the blue dress on

Fee, fee, fi, fi, for-fo, fum
Look at Molly now, here she comes
Wearin' her wig hat and shades to match
She's got high-heel shoes and an alligator hat
Wearin' her pearls and her diamond rings
She's got bracelets on her fingers, now, and everything

Wearin' her perfume, Chanel No. 5
Got to be the finest girl alive
She walks real cool, catches everybody's eye
They got to be nervous, they can't say Hi
Not too skinny, she's not too fat
She's a real humdinger and I like 'em like that

Good golly, Miss Molly
You sure like to ball
Good golly, Miss Molly
You sure like to ball
It's late in the evenin'
Don't you hear your mama call

From the early, early mornin' 'til the early, early nights
See Miss Molly rockin' at the House of Blue Lights
Good golly, Miss Molly
You sure like to ball
While you're rocking and you're rolling
Can't you hear your mama call

  13. Shelia, that makes me want to tackle a baby dress next time someone I know has a baby! It's been a long time since I cranked up the old sewing machine. This is my first time at your blog and I wondered how the "songs" in the name would come in -- that is too cute!
