I caught an idea to sew a folk dress for my just arrived doll Dollsbe Paprika. I had a natural color linen that gave me another idea to use Gorodets paintings for the dress embroidery.
I created the embroidery design and even embroidered it on a fabric.
I do not remember what happened, but it was left for some time. When I found it at the end of March this year I discovered that my experience in creating machine embroidery designs is higher now and I decided to recreate design using my new knowledges.

Natural linen color dress with “Gorodets” embroidery
Last weekends I decided that I have everything for a pleasure sewing: a good pattern, an embroidered bodice front and, finally, the time!
The dress bodice has a cotton lining as usual. I do this to prevent stains on the doll body, at first. At second, I like when the wrong side of the dress is clean.
The very interesting detail in this dress for me – it’s sleeves. Probably I rediscovered a bicycle with these sleeves, but I do not really remember dresses with such sleeves for tiny BJD. But don’t ask to repeat them again 🙂 The sleeves are very tiny for my fingers!
The dress has small buttons on the back, but it really fastens with snaps.
The underskirt was sewn from a batiste. This fabric is so thin and transparent that it was hard to cut the details off, to sew them and finish the edges. The underskirt has one wide ruffle. The dress skirt has 2 ruffles different in width. Small bow gathers the skirt a little showing the underskirt ruffle.
Periwinkle color dress with “Gorodets” embroidery
Because I liked the embroidery design I’d created, I couldn’t stop using it. And I embroidered one more linen dress. This time in periwinkle color.
It almost the same as shown above, I only made it sleeveless.

What would be better to enjoy sunny day wearing the new dress at a countryside?
