What out fit for Goldilocks?

I’m making a Goldilocks and Three bears doll from a Blaze kit… I’m going to make her dress from an Victorian era pattern
patterns were designed by Betty Bailey of Lincoln Mold Company at http://www.lincolnmold.com

What dress pattern screams Goldilocks to you? Not the material or colors just the patterns…




I think that #1 looks more like something a child would wear than # 2…

I LOVE #2 but I guess #1 looks more like a pattern for a toddler. Hard top decide, though. I can sooooooooooo see #2 in a soft, powdery victorian blue with venice lace for trim…sigh…
can wait to see what you end up doing! It’ll be gorgeous, no matter which one you decide on!

I plan to check out that company “lincoln” you mentioned too. I am always interested in period clothing especially when I can up date it and use it for BJD’s, or Ellowyne Wilde. I dress American girls too.

I didn’t make either dress, they are samples from the website.

Not to turn this into a advertisement… Actually, Lincoln Mold already adapted the real Victorian patterns into doll sizes.

I think we’re on the same page, lol.
Blue/periwinkle silk Dupioni with beige/pinkish trim



Or a light yellow silk Dupioni with dusty blue trim.



Who knows it can all change once I enter the fabric store, lol.

YESSSSSSSSS!!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that blue periwinkle!!! Venice lace just grabs my heart on ANYTHING…yep…we are most definitely on the same page.

i picked this one… Mubby and son are going to See superman 3d so I will be next door at Joanne Fabrics, lol.

Excellent choice… I am anxious to see her finished… are you making the 3 bears too???

Dress #1

I saw this after you had already decided. I’m glad you chose the first one, though, as that was also going to be my vote. I LOVE the fabric and lace. Did you end up finding that or choosing something else that called out to you at the store?

Oh yes! Joann’s silk dupioni was paper thin and super shiny, reminded me of a shirt from the $90s, meh. BUT they had a 60% off Waverly home decor fabric…

This stuff was $40 a yard regular price and I got it for $12.99 a yard! It looked blue under the florescent lights but now that it’s home, it’s more of a minty green and my antique venise tooks bleh.

I really like Purple and Ballet Blush

or black and Ballet Blush


I’m the opposite - I hate the black! Still love the blue better.

If you’re looking for opinions, I actually really like the one in the middle, too. I don’t know why, though. My brain says the cream or black should look better but my eyes like the purplish/bluish. Odd. Looking so forward to seeing what you come up with.

If you use a color wheel, the complimentary color is on the opposite side. And purple is across from yellow green… so in theory they will compliment each other…

If all else fails I will have to use Walmart’s polyester blue “silk dupioni” lol.

Back to finishing Snow White…
