How to make Mrs. Santa

Create 16" Joanie doll. You may want to make her hair white. Using dress pattern pieces included on Joanie Pattern, add 6" to dress length, and 2" to sleeve length. (Note: adjust patterns before cutting fabric.) Cut yoke piece, of dress fabric. Assemble dress following pattern instructions, trimming liberally with 1" lace ruffling at sleeve, skirt hem and yoke. See picture for placement, or do your own thing! Sew bow on center front at yoke.

Cut a circle 11" in diameter for cap. Hem edge 1/4" and trim with lace ruffling. Stretch and sew elastic, or gather all around, 1/3" from edge of hem. Adjust gathers to fit doll's head. www.sewsweetdolls.com/mrs-santa-how-to
