Aunt Emily

Emily Bowyer Hammel was my father's older sister. She was the dearest person I've ever known. Over several adolescent summers, she patiently taught me how to sew and how to cook. I loved her. Sadly, she has been gone these few years and I miss her very much. However, I am carrying on her legacy of sewing and trying to carry on her legacy of caring.

Doll Clothes from 1950's

Align Center
Here is the ideal doll's trousseau from the 1950's. For your 22 inch high fashion doll. I think I had a ballerina doll that was that tall, but I'm not certain. I know I didn't have a bride doll, but I always wanted one. My aunt, who was 5 years older than I was, had a bride doll. And she would hide it whenever I came to visit.

I think I may have to watch at the antique malls to find one of those dolls and make her a fabulous new outfit.

And, I have my summer sewing projects all finished, finally. I'll be posting photos in the next few days - two tops and one dress from one pattern, a dress from a second and another from a third. A skirt and a top from Connie Crawford patterns. And a top based on the owl tunic I made in late winter. Stay tuned.
