Vintage doll's dress for a Commission

I see I that I haven't blogged on here for a year. During that time, I nursed my lovely husband through his illness (cancer) until his death in February of this year. After a full six months I am finally getting back to sewing again. This little vintage doll was given to me by her owner to re-dress and the only stipulation was that it had to be a blue dress.  Here she is before and after.  Her vintage voile dress and bonnet are fully lined and underneath she wears taffeta pants and separate petticoat.
As she arrived in old knitted dress and bonnet.

Her undergarments - blousy knickers and separate petticoat

Finished smocked voile dress and bonnet. I hope her Mum loves her.
