Happy Birthday Samantha!

Samantha spent a lovely Birthday at Disneyland!

 Like a proper young lady Sam made sure she dressed her best. 

 First she had lunch at Carnation Cafe and was very pleased to find that the decor matched her outfit. She loves peppermint stripes!

 Next she went a fun cruise aboard the Mark Twain along with the beautiful Princess Tiana!

 Here she is being not-so-ladylike!

 "ahhhh... the fresh air is so nice!"

"That was a fun adventure indeed!"

Caroline's New Dress

Poor Caroline is sad after hearing the news of her archival. To cheer her up I made her this lovely dress from Thimbles and Acorns Bib Front Regency Dress pattern in a pretty lavender color.

The main fabric is Rowan's Shot Cotton which is actually two colors (blue and pink) woven together creating a gorgeous effect, and fully lined in ivory cotton. 

Hand gathered ruffled neckline trim and Chinese Knotted buttons.

Front tab closure under the bib,

Gathered sleeves with peep-hole cutout.

Drawstring high-waist that ties in the back.

May 2015 AGPLA Visit

Molly had a wonderful time visiting the American Girl store in Los Angeles!

 "I don't think Samantha would mind if I have some petits fours."

"This painting is turning out quite nice!"

"Hi Grace! What do you recommend?"
"Hi Molly! I highly recommend the macaroons!"

"mmmm... this bread smells delicious! I wonder if Grace would mind if I took a little bite."

"uhhh... I think there's a spot in my glass!"

 I guess Molly was really hungry this trip.
After visiting Grace's bakery and bistro, Molly had lunch inside the cafe with Julie.

Inside the cafe we met a White Body Molly!

 After all the eating Molly had a lot of energy to burn off.
Here she is trying some gymnastics. She is a much better tap dancer than a gymnast!

Molly ended the day by serving others! :)
