My daughter graduated this summer to a “big girl doll” – one that looks her age instead of like a baby – and her favorite part so far has been matching clothes.
The moment I saw the first teaser picture of Ileana, I knew it would become a favorite. It’s got everything – a twirly skirt, pockets, comfy lining, and zip closure – to make it perfect for playing and totally gorgeous.
Since everything new I make for my daughter has to come with a twin version for her BFF, I loved that this dress was particularly fun to adapt to the dolly version. The mini-twin has a tulle underskirt for extra poof and a gathered skirt to help fullness since she can’t twirl it up on her own.
If there were a version of this in grown-up sizes, I would make it for myself in a heartbeat!
