Staying busy - Shhhh it's a surprise!

 My middle daughter is getting an 18 inch doll for Christmas that looks like her. She has wanted one for years and I finally caved in. She went looking on etsy for clothes, she doesn't know for sure she's getting it she's just hoping lots and lots! The dresses she liked are $30 - $40 and after the cost of the doll I just couldn't do it, especially since I can sew. I swore off sewing doll clothes years ago but I had to get over that if I wanted to save some major money! This same daughter of mine has decided when she gets married everyone will wear a different rainbow color and she will wear white and be the cloud at the end. I took that idea and turned it into her doll's new wardrobe. The dresses are pictured on my 18 inch doll, and all of them together cost me $30!
Red is a velvet drop waist dress trimmed in sparkly gold.
Since we live in the desert I thought a sun dress would be perfect for orange, including bloomers.
Yellow is a flannel nightgown with (yellow) rosebuds on it.
Green is a mermaid dress, Ariel is her favorite Princess.
Blue (her favorite color) is a snowflake dress and furry fleece pale blue jacket.
 
Purple is lavender metallic paisley. 
Sheer embroidered overlay on satin.
