|Bishop from Dolly's Wardrobe by Children's Corner|
American Girl Rebecca is modeling Children's Corner Betsy Bishop dress. This little dress was made for a doll raffle to be at the American Sewing Guild National Convention.
The dress is made from baby blue micro check. The smocking plate is a version of "Darling Daisies" from Smocked Minatures VI by Debbie Glenn.
Rebecca is a newer Mattel doll that is a little slimmer than the original American Girl dolls. When the Children's Corner book was originally published, the pattern would have been a pretty good fit. I didn't remove any fabric width, thinking a bishop would make it ok. I wish I would have removed about an inch from the front and back. A great article about the changing doll sizes is here.
Good-bye sweet dress! Hope you enjoy your new home!
