I love my job! Before we get into the details about the build, let me explain a why I am so excited and b what made me want to build a dollhouse in the first place. He had this great idea to make me a little playhouse using some leftover siding and supplies from the ranch house that he and my Mom built just before I was born. Needless to say, I loved the idea.
I also made another dress and will probably make a few more so she had a larger wardrobe to play with. The Nautical print quilting cotton I used for the dress was some I found on sale at Fabricland — there was under a metre left by the time I got my hands on it, which made me sad, but I knew it would be enough to make cute little things for my niece, so I snapped it up anyway. The fabric ended up being a bit of a pain — if you notice at the hem of the skirt there are some white marks, that happened just from sewing it somehow, which was frustrating as hell while I was making it.
