I bought the dress below because it was on sale and was comfortable. I'm not a fan of this type of sleeve and found that I never wore it because of that. Since it's made from a t-shirt cotton knit, I cut the sleeves off at the elastic gather so I wouldn't have to hem or finish the sleeve.
When I saw the cut sleeves on my work table, I immediately saw two little doll skirts.
I grabbed my stash of ribbons and with just a few quick stitches...
...Voila...cute skirts were born. I was even able to make a decorative organza flower with the extra gathered ruffle I made.
About the model: When Cabbage Patch Kids first came out, I wanted one that looked like me. They were all pretty much blond hair/blue eyes. So my friend's mom made me this one with "Linda" details right down to the gold ring and bracelet I always wore. I've kept it all these years.
