365 Ways to Shoot a Doll : Party Dress Shot

This project "365 Ways to Shoot a Doll" is meant to invoke thought, emotion and conversation. As the project moves along there will references to the abuses women and children live with and through from the hands of government, husbands, fathers etc. BUT it will also deal with the positive effects of love and respect and encouragement.

365 Ways to Shoot a Doll : A New Party Dress

D'Ann Sherstone dropped off this beautifully beaded and crocheted party dress for Dolly. Everything about it is adorable right up to the little pink flower. As a non-crocheter I can't begin to guess how many stitches are in this little dress. Thank you, D'Ann.




If you'd like to sew/crochet/knit/papermache/create a dress for Dolly let me know and I'll mail you a pattern.

365 Ways to Shoot a Doll: Vancouver Designed Dress


This project "365 Ways to Shoot a Doll" is meant to invoke thought, emotion and conversation. As the project moves along there will references to the abuses women and children live with and through from the hands of government, husbands, fathers etc. BUT it will also deal with the positive effects of love and respect and encouragement.

Sue Hutchen (Vancouver Artist/Author) hand stitched Dolly's new linen sundress. The stitches are delicate and the fabric soft.  Many thanks Sue!
