A creative journey with doll fashion

A slow start

We had a fantastic time on our holiday and I must say spending quality time with our son Lloyd and his lovely wife Sarah was the highlight for us both. I have eventually made a swing coat to go with the pink bird dress. I love this bird fabric and I will make other creations from this in the future.  Now to work on some other ideas.

I am definitely finding it hard to get back into a routine at home. Never mind I just need to go with the flow and fit in sewing as much as I can.20170605_152014

mistakes were made

Oh dear! Mistakes were made. I was bagging out my little pink jacket and I poked a hole in it. So now I have a lovely dress with no jacket to sell. I was hoping to put this outfit on Etsy before I go on holidays but now it will just have to wait until June.

I will have to close my shop this weekend as my husband and I are travelling to the UK to visit our son and his lovely wife. We miss them dearly.

So here are some photos of the dress with no jacket. I love this pink silk but it is delicate to sew like peace silk.

Jacket over dress

I have spent most of my spare time making a soft New Zealand woolen top for myself and unpicking the lining of my coat so I can make a pattern. I did finish one dress with a matching jacket in silk. The other one is cut out and ready for me to sew this week.

Birds in Paradise

I have been distracted this week as I have been sewing winter clothes for myself and I also need to reline a coat to take on holidays. So the little blouse has been cut out and sitting on the bench It will stay there for a little bit longer as I would like to make some outfits with these lovely fabrics. 20170312_210636

Spring Thing

I really enjoyed making this outfit. Retro pants and an empire line top and a matching hat. I found pants can be tricky as the length varies between dolls.  I just have enough top fabric to make a blouse. This is my next project which maybe teamed with some pants.

You must see the link below. Just amazing. I wish I could buy some of those miniature flowers, they are gorgeous or make my own but I have not found them on the internet.

A Touch of Lace

I have used all the scalloped lace and I made four outfits in total of various colors. Moving on I would like to create a silk evening outfit and I have had some retro pants ready to sew. I am thinking I may add some retro blouses and maybe a hat. I have some modern fabrics that would be great for my Fashion Royalty dolls. Here are the outfits.

AM Dreams

Hi All

Don DeGracia has made an amazing diorama with one of my dolls dresses. Here is a link to view.

Welcome to my 5th major diorama! (#1 here, #2 here, #3 here, #4 here) I call this one “AM Dreams”. However, “AM” does not stand for “morning” but for ANNIE MORRI…
