It looks like a Wicked White Winter

Blog3It feels like I have been working nonstop for the last 3 days. I guess it is just the computer stuff that seem to take for ever. My coding skills are improving, but I will never be expert. Stuff keeps changing and if you don’t continually kept at it the world wide web will just pass you by.

This little coat for Leeann turned out so cute. I was hoping it would be great on KID, but it was really too big. I think I will make it over for KID, BeJu and Lark next. Although, I am tired of sewing this fabric. It Blog2was a satin drapery fabric with a slub. I used it years ago when I did little girls fancy dresses for Martha’s Miniatures. I should have thought about the fraying before I chose it! Not easy to work with, but did look nice made up. The faux fur is about 1-inch at its longest and about 1/2 at the shortest fibers. It did have a very natural look. christmas1_2015

I made two more hooded coats out of this faux fur and satin. One is for my Parnilla Ghastly doll and the other is for my MSD size girls. They looks cute all together, I wish I had remembered to take a photo that way.

Left is the dress for the pattern The Devil’s in the Details. This strapless dress is from printed cotton, one of those fat quarters you find in just about all hobby and sewing stores. There is a vest that goes over this also made in cotton. I got the idea for this from some Japanese photos I saved.
The new Christmas pattern is finished. It’s the pink dress to the left for Evangeline Ghastly. I was late getting it out last year and I wanted to make sure you had plenty of time to sew up a dress or two if the 18.5 Ghastly dolls are in your family.

Venice Beach

This was a pattern I did for Marley Wentworth maybe 7 years ago. MarleyI took all my old patterns down when I rewrote my website and started over. I was more interested in my new BJD’s than my old fashion dolls. It’s taken a while but I have come around again to the fashion dolls. I reviewed a lot of the old Tyler patterns and put them up last year. I’m also working on my American Model patterns. Then I had a few requests for Marley, so I have been reviewing her old patterns and that’s when I redid Venice Beach for her. You can see her there on the right with the orange Georgette top and white linen capris.

LonnieThat was a really cute pattern but I didn’t have any cute pictures of it, so I had to remake the outfit. I don’t know what happened to the original one. This time I took the photos on Alice and not Marley. I guess I have always liked her face better. Anyway, while I was at it I made the same outfit for my Iplehouse KID, Lonnie doll. She looks precious in the blue and white stripe cotton top and denim capris. Then I thought BID also needed the outfit in her size. Well you know how it goes, BID Elin isn’t that much smaller than Leeann so she got the outfit in her size. Once I did that I realized that Narsha was almost the same size as Lonnie so why not make the pattern for her. I love how Narsha’s turned out in the red and white. She looks pretty wild in matching red hair. Narsha

So in the end, I made the pattern for 5 dolls. You’ll have to go to the website to see Leeann and BID.

I know Betsy is just giving me the cold stare  because she isn’t that much bigger than Narsha, and thinks every time I make Narsha a new outfit she gets one too!
