Mildred, Alma, Neen and Peggy collaboration

A few days ago I posted a picture of a baby dress that belonged to Mildred Giles which was passed down to her daughter, Alma, who passed it down to my friend Neen.

Neen wanted to do something nice with the dress to remember her wonderful friend Alma, so she
asked that I offer it for sale to benefit the Walk for Diabetes fund that her family participates in every year.

I hope my decision to make a doll to wear the dress was the right one, so we will see.  Except for adding some ribbons to the bonnet that she holds, I didn't make any changes.  I made her slip and pantaloons from some soft vintage fabric.and there is a little scrap of lace that I added to her hair. I will be taking her to Town Peddler for their Spring Open House this week.

I hope your Sunday is much blessed.  My whole week has certainly been, things have gone well.  Love to everyone.
