Midweek With Marion

Hello, Dear Ones and welcome to Midweek With Marion. I've made Marion another sweet little outfit.
 Marion's style of dress reminded me of Heidi (played by Shirley Temple) the little Swiss girl who lived in the alps with her grandfather. 
Of course Marion's dress is not really the same as Shirley's, but the bodice is similar. I just love all of Shirley Temple's little movies and I will still watch one if it comes on the tube today! 
 See? Little shirtwaist dress with puffed sleeves. I combined this darling little lady bug fabric with a little red print.
I just had to show the bodice to you again. Do you see those little lady bug buttons? I told you I was only going to use what I had in my stash but I needed some cute buttons, saw these and had to have them. I added a placket. I just love plackets and so do these lady bug buttons.
 I added a little ruffle around the bottom of her dress and of course she had to have some bloomers.
 I thought Marion would look precious with her braids up on top of her little head. Isn't she pretty?
 I'm sure there were little lambs and goats up in the alps so Marion wanted an animal too. I found a little lamb for her. Now that I think of it, Marion could be the Mary who had a little lamb!! :)
Okie dokie! Here is the pattern I used. I don't think it's a reprint of an olden pattern but it could be. I just fell in love with all of the outfits and look at the precious little doll. I used view D for Marion's Shirley or Mary dress with my own spin added to it. I know I'm going to use this pattern over and over ~ just look at all of these little cute clothes! Excuse me, Dear Ones, think I feel a yodel coming on!  Make sure you go and visit my friend, Diane at Welcome to Lavender Dreams as she creates some darling doll clothes too!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

In Our Little Wooden Shoes

Have you seen my new shoes
they are made out of wood,
Such nice little shoes,
don't you think they look good?
I can dance all around
with the greatest of ease
I jump from the ground
to the tops of the trees.
I'll tell you something
I'm going to try
Put on your shoes
and away we'll fly,
We'll take a trip
where ever we choose,
We'll dance and skip
in our little wooden shoes.
How many miles will you travel with me,
One mile or two miles or may be three.
We'll make a stop where ever we choose,
We'll skip and hop
in our little wooden shoes.
~ sung by Shirley Temple
