Doll Days Design Challenge Winners

First off it needs to be stated that judging this 18 inch Doll Dress Design contest was difficult! Many judges said they were having a hard time choosing!  In the end it was extremely close. Thank you to all the dress designers that entered.  It was amazing to see all the possibilities with just one pattern: Vintage Party Dress from Doll Days!. In fact, a young judge was unaware that all the dresses were made using the same pattern 🙂 You can see all the dresses in this post.

Some chose to upcycle.
