Just a quick update!

Summer is winding down and I find I have zero time to sew. I'm a bit stressed getting all the last minute stuff together to send both kids off to high school. Yes, my baby goes to high school this year. {cries} I tried last week to make some new maxi dresses - I've got some new fabrics just begging to become maxi dresses! - but I'm feeling rushed and distracted. So my dolls ended up with a new, less than perfect dress. And I have nothing new for the shop.

But my kids return to school on Tuesday and I am planning a major sewing marathon. No phone, no distractions...just me and the sewing machine, a pile of fabrics and some dolly models. Sounds like fun, doesn't it? So look for some new things by the end of the week!

Summer of Love

Isn't it funny how fashions come back in style? When I was a little girl, I wanted maxi dresses and a gypsy haircut. Anyone else remember those? One of the reasons I love Blythe so much, other than she is a doll of the same era, is that I can create outfits that I would have loved to wear way back then. My mom wasn't a very fashion forward person, and most definitely not a hippie, so I didn't get the maxi dresses or the gypsy haircut. But I can make them for my dolls!

This one is available in my Etsy shop and I plan to make several more dresses in this style with different fabrics. Check back soon!!
