My Emily

Emily's ShortallsReally, isn’t my Emily is the prettiest little girl? I never really think of her as a doll. She is so life-like. I finished this short-all outfit for her a few weeks ago, but just haven’t gotten around to setting up the kitchen photo studio. It is really an all-day project and I like to have a few outfits to work with before I go to all that work.

I mentioned on Facebook that I just got a Patsy/Anne Estelle doll off Ebay. As a few people told me she is close in size to my Iplehouse BID but not all the clothes I tried on her, fit well. She also could wear some outfits that I made for Leeann/Petite Ai, but not all. So I guess I will also be going thru all my outfits to see what fits her and take some pictures at the same time as I do my picture for Emily.

I really think Emily reminds me of a child from the 50’s and Pasty is from the 30’s or at least that is how I envision them. I have a great book by Dover of spot prints and there are little girl’s dresses pictured that I have always wanted to make so I have picked out 3 that I will be doing for Patsy, and maybe see how they work on BID.

I guess I picture Emily in a Dan River plaid dress with full petticoat or a pleated skirt and white blouse with knit vest and tame. Maybe I can work on those ideas soon. I would love it if you have some suggestions as to what  you would like to see me work on. Sometimes I get designers block and it seems like I have been suffering from it for the last month or two. Guess I had better get back to work now.
