My Anne of Green Gables

My very first Tonner doll was a Dream Girl Tiny Kitty that I bought nude on ebay.  She reminded me so much of Anne Shirley that I made her this dress from the description in the first book:  A lovely soft brown gloria with all the gloss of silk; a skirt with dainty frills and shirrings; a waist elaborately pin-tucked in the most fashionable way, with a ruffle of filmy lace at the neck.  Long elbow cuffs, and above them two beautiful puffs divided by rows of shirring and bows of brown silk ribbon.  

I don't actually know what kind of fabric "gloria" is, but I think that I got the glossy part right, at least.  And anyway, this is just my interpretation. 


  1. Oh my! I almost bought one of these dolls for the same reason! But I knew I couldn't sew her any pretty clothes. Your's is amazing! Love her so much!

  2. That dress is so beautiful! I found the pic of your dress because I was googling Gloria fabric and trying to figure out what it looks like--because of the book, of course-lol.
