Doll Dress Boutique: a dress for every occasion = sew 40+ projects for 18” dolls
Erin Hentzel of Avery Lane Sewing
64 pages plus 16 page pattern pullout
I met Erin in Salt Lake City at Spring International Quilt Market in 2014 where her first book, Sew in Style with C&T debuted. Her excitement bubbled over as she talked about the book. Tracy wrote the book reviews for both books as her daughter loved the 18” dolls and made one of the projects in the book.
After perusing Doll Dress Boutique I think it’s important to just get all three books. Yes, I did just say that. Erin has a way of presenting garment making that makes sense to my brain. Her step outs are clear, showing each technique well. I love that the dresses have a bespoke quality incorporating hand work, and unique trim.
Quilters, these dresses are fat quarter friendly, allowing us the option of using our stash, creating one of a kind looks. The kids can choose the fabrics that they love, deepening a sense of creativity. With older kids who sew, let them do some of the simpler seams and hand stitching;. Just a reminder it doesn’t need to be perfect.
