Strider has a Birthday/ Friend makes a Dolly Nightgown!!

My friend made the nightgown in the Mary Francis Book.
Doll Clothes patterns are included in the book.
Very Cute!

There is tiny maline lace beading at the neck to draw it up to fit.   
It was designed for a smaller doll and won't fit her American Girl doll.  So, we are on the lookout for a cute doll who goes with the Mary Francis clothes!
Any ideas?

Sister Visit - Strider has a Birthday!

Happy Birthday to Strider!
He's 1 year old.

My sister with Strider
My Sister made him a birthday hat.

Maybe he's not a hat person.

Jeannie, you look thrilled with Strider in his party hat, but he doesn't look thrilled at all. Got a kick out of the pics! The dolly gown is sweet.

Do a google search for Mary Frances Doll and you will find her! My now 23 year old daughter has one from when she was younger and used to sew dresses from the MF book.

Good luck! Rachel Boyle

I recall that Lacis had a Mary Frances doll on their website at one time.

So happy you and your sister are having fun -- even at Strider's expense!
