The blouse has functional buttons/buttonholes, and it is made of a lightweight creamy cotton.
And, since I only own two skirts for her, (meet skirt, and tree house outfit skirt) I made patterns off of those two and used up some cute reproduction 30's prints I had in my stash! Even though I love to sew for her, I think I might have to start selling some of the things I make, or get a Ruthie doll, because she has an awful lot of clothes for a poor depression-era girl! ;) Here are some pictures of her in her new things, I mix-and-matched them so you can see how versatile they are!
Her new pleated skirt was made as a copy of her original, just using different fabrics. I also relaxed the pleats, so it was less stiff looking.
Her trusty cover-all's are a HUGE staple in her wardrobe... I don't think she wears anything else during the summer!
This one came out a bit too small, but I think it still looks nice with her purple cardigan.
Thanks for looking! Hopefully I will post about someone other than Kit tomorrow, or I might have to change my blog name to Uniquely Kit! ;)
