I have a friend who shares photos of clothes made for dolls and real people that she really likes. She is also very generous. She has sent me fabric and some rather extravagant gifts. This week I had the time to make something for her as a "Thank You!" for all of the lovely things she shares and sends my way.
This ensemble was made with tulle, lace, silk ribbon, satin ribbon and thread. It took an entire day to make the skirt- it is even fussier than it looks.
Well, to be fair, I am very fussy about how I make things ;)~
I wanted it to look "Monster High" but still retain the bit of "naughty" my friend enjoys.
Remember, the drawing is on April 1st. - no foolin'! Leave a comment and get an entry for the PB Fun Pack of goodies.
Yoked skirt made with 100% cotton in pink, red and vanilla stripes.
The body of the blouse and its large peter pan collar is made from thin black cotton gauze. The sleeves are made with cotton candy pink and white striped cotton. There is hand applied vintage ecru lace, silk ribbon and tiny black shank buttons down the front. Both pieces close with a snap in the back.
We go back to Mom's for more clean up tomorrow (Friday). After that I am taking 2 weeks off to sew, while my brother takes 2 weeks to get his Rat Rod Adult Big Wheel ready for action at Viva Las Vegas. If he doesn't sell it before I get there to take photos, I will share his creation here.
I took some photos of some of the things I will be putting in the box for the lucky winner of the drawing at the end of this month. I will add more to what you see, but this is a taste.
Still cleaning at Mom's. We've made six trips and I am sure there are many many more to make. Best find last week were some photos which made the whole trip worth it. It's almost always the little things.
I am back at my sewing machine this week. There should be some new items in the store and pictured here soon.
