Blythe Dress Designs: Edith's Head

Bonnie is now modeling the finished "Grace Dress for Blythe". Still tweaking the pattern a bit.
Genevieve wanted the same dress, only using the self-striping yarn I had in my stash. Well, self-striping yarn and the top from the Grace dress don't mix so well, so a new design was born... doesn't have a name yet.
The mint green dress is knit from the bottom up... the ice cream striped dress is knit from the top down.
I feel like the Edith Head of doll dress design.

Okay, it was generous of me to label myself as the Edith Head of doll dress design, I know. Believe me, I am not channeling her in any way .... I'm just wearing her glasses.

The Grace dress is everything you described....congrats on reproducing your vision! I ADORE the new design ala Genevieve. Something about it makes me think of la playa in Mexico.

You and Hims would make a glamorous fashion designing superstar duo! Those glasses are so smart.

Thanks, everyone, for the kind comments.

Howie, I think the glasses are very much the owl from the Tootsie Pop commercials... "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? One... Twoo....Thrrreeee!"
