Bru Bonnet

Finished making a matched bonnet for 14” Bru! Usually a large brim bonnet works the best with this type of dress. This jacket costume makes the doll look “ gorgeous “ and “ grand” .

I used teal blue antique silk velvet at the back and antique silk batiste for the front side of the brim. Decorated simply with antique silk taffeta ribbons and pale blue feather, vintage millinery flowers. Next project is to make shoes 👠 🥰


Bru dress completed

I just finished this aqua blue Bru dress for my 14″ Bru doll.  I wanted to try stitching cord trim with patterns on the jacket as an accent this time.

I don’t use this technique very often because it’s very time consuming but totally worth it when I see the result.

I also had this lovely antique lace that I wanted to use so badly for this Bru doll. Unfortunately it did not have enough length but I somehow managed to overlay it on the skirt. Next project is to make a matching bonnet!
