Store News and More

Back At Work - Yes!

New items being added to Dolly Dolly Fashions 
on Etsy almost daily.  
Some of these are sold, some get listed tonight.

And then...

Meet Star.  My newest Kingdom Doll.

I made something just for her when I found out she was mine!

I think she likes it!

The Dress Form

This is the first dress form made for Kingdom Dolls.  I am slowly making a tutorial about making your own form.  Slowly because I am still learning what works best.  Dauphine  modeled with the form before sending it to the UK to Amanda.  Amanda designs and sews for these dolls.

So how was your January?  We are strolling quickly into February.  More new things coming.  Thank You for hanging in there with me.  Your comments and emails of encouragement have helped so much to push me along through some rough patches.

Happy Valentines Day!

Cheers, PB Ray

Kingdom Dolls & Other News


She is my second Kingdom Doll and she arrived just before Christmas.

Cinnamon is so well balanced she can stand on her own. I do use her stand for display, but find this amazing.  The sculpts of these dolls by the fabulous Alexandra Forbes are so detailed and so lovely.

So now I have Dauphine and Cinnamon and of course I am sewing for them. I made some fashions for my friend Machelle for Christmas. Here are the photos of those endeavors so far:

Top and skirt for Machelle. Modeled by Dauphine.

Side lace insert pants for Machelle, modeled by Dauphine.

Solitaire and Dauphine. Dauphine is wearing my Garden Party fashion. 
It includes bra, petticoat with attached panty and dress.

What shall she wear?

Holiday Fashion for Dauphine.  100% recycled silks.

Enjoying the tree.  Dauphine in hand embroidered lace over-lay red silk for Machelle, Venus in her original dress and Cinnamon wearing a new jacket by Meg Fashion Doll and the pants for Machelle.

Homer's best christmas ever!

Machelle sent me a new Sybarite and other goodies for them for Christmas.
Here they all are opening their gifts on Christmas morning:

I hope you had a great Christmas and wish you all a Happy New Year!

I am working on a new tutorial.  Sneak peek...
