Happy Halloween!!!!

Hope your Halloween is full of fun! Viv and I had some fun in the photo studio. She's ready for the witching hour! That's her pet raven, Nevermore, there on her arm. We tried on the new style dress I've been working on. It's almost there, just a few more refinements... The bodice is fully lined and all the seams are enclosed. And it's got scallops at the hem.

Have a great weekend!!

Hello, It's Monday...

And I got three new dresses in the shop today. I've been playing with some prototypes of new ideas, but I'm not satisfied yet. I'd love to put some new styles in the shop, but for now, I'll stick with the modified Skipper dress. I really do like how it looks on Blythe. Here's Bryn in one of the new ones:

I also made myself a light box today so my girls don't look quite so shiny in their pictures. The white fabric really does diffuse the light so they don't get big white spots on their shiny, shiny faces. Something else to take up space in the sewing room... It does fold flat, but it's still something else! It's a bit crowded up there.

And I got my pink froggy today from Japan! I'm so excited. Now to make her some clothes. She's been trying on shoes to see what she can share with the Blythe dollies. I hope they don't mind sharing with the froggies too much...

11 Days to Halloween!!

This was such a cute little dress that I decided to make another!! It's in the shop, with some other cute things for Blythe.

Chloe got to model this one; I thought her hair went well with the orange! Of all my girls, she's the closest to a diva. She is very lovely, but doesn't always photograph well. Tonight, she kept sliding and falling and just when I went to snap the picture, her hair would flop in her eye. High maintenance for sure! But one of my very favorite girls. I'm not even tempted to customize this one, well, maybe just a spray matte...

Happy Halloween!!

I've been busy up in the sewing room! I had planned to have Halloween dresses ready early this year, but with the "hurricane" damage in September, the power outage and all the related clean-up, I just couldn't seem to get into a productive mode. But better late than never! I uploaded two babydoll style dresses today and may attempt another style or two tomorrow.

I just love how the orange in the dresses looks with their eyes. I can honestly say that today was the first time I've photographed any of my girls with orange eyes! Not my fave eyechip color, but useful for Halloween!!

Have a happy day!

Fun Dresses for the Shop!

Flossie and Vivvie were happy to try on some new dresses for the shop. They liked them so much I'll have to make some for them to keep!! But these are in the shop. There will hopefully be more soon. I snipped a tiny hole in the third one I was making, so my girls get to keep that one. Looks like a busy weekend so it might be early next week before I get back to the sewing machine.

Thanks for stopping by and have a super weekend!
