Purple things

Have finally pulled through a 'dry' time in sewing and finished these two purple items: BWOF 12-2008-127 House Jacket and a nightgown for J's doll that she requested. Also a purple wool skirt that I'll post later when I get a chance to wear it. The doll nightgown is in the same fabric as my daughter's and she requested it have the same sheep applique. The Burda item was in knit fabric but I wanted a warm short jacket to wear in the house during the winter and used a five-year old fleece from my stash. It was actually quite simple to sew up -- once I got to it!
Also repaired J's doll -- it's soft body seems to need darning every few months.
