Let's Make a Snowman!

"Let's make a snowman!"
...Nicki rolls the base through the snow making it bigger and bigger...
...Sprocket watches while they add the torso...

...and Julie puts the head on top...
"Let's dress this snowman up!"
...They give him a carrot nose and button eyes...

"It's the perfect snowman!"

Medieval Gown

My latest custom work was to make a cranberry colored medieval gown! It is made from silk fabric and gorgeous embroidered ribbon trim. It turned out beautifully!

Is this not the most amazing hairstyle ever? I love its elegance!

- Fall with Kaya and Mia -

I have been swamped with school which has severely cut into my free time, however...I wasn't going to let fall come and go without taking some doll photos.

Yesterday, the weather was perfect for a photo shoot. I got Kaya and Mia all dressed up and headed out to take advantage of the fall colors. I had a blast!

I was going to be patient and wait until Thanksgiving to post these photos, but I can't wait that long! Enjoy! :-)

Create Your Own -- Pirate Outfit --

One of the questions that I am asked frequently is how I made the pirate outfit Jess was wearing in my recent pirate post. The truth is that I didn't make this outfit...not really! Just for fun, I am going to share how I came up with this outfit and how you can do the same.

- Base Layer - Start with something simple, like undergarments. For mine, I used Felicity's shift that comes with her meet outfit.

- Bottom Layer - Tucked away in the pile of dress-up clothes that I constantly used growing up, is a frilly white girl's slip. If I fold it just so, I can "shrink" it down and create a wonderful skirt that fits the dolls! As an overskirt, I used pieces from the outfit below that I sewed. Using safety pins, I pinned up the skirt in front and then concealed the pins by tying ribbons onto the safety pins.
If you don't have a petticoat, you could even use a pair of bloomers under the skirt!
- Corset - Once again, I made use of the corset from a previous outfit. This time though, I turned it around so that it laced up the front. Corsets are easy to make and can be as simple as a strip of fabric with eyelets placed at each end!

- Hair & Accessories -
I was inspired by Jack Sparrow for Jess's hairstyle. To do it, I tied a strip of fabric around Jess's head and then braided some pieces and let them go over the band.
For a cool accessory, I made use of a necklace that was in my jewelry box. If you had a little dagger, that would make a great accessory as well!
A pirate outfit is fun thing to create. Chances are if you have a few bits and pieces here and there and use your imagination...you'll design a great pirate outfit!

...It was the end of summer at Grandfather's plantation...

...Elizabeth was gathering some flowers to press and share with Miss Manderly...

...when Felicity came running over the hill out of breath...

...Felicity whispered something into Elizabeth's ear...

..."We're being what?!" Elizabeth cried out...

..."We're being archived!"...

...Farewell Felicity & Elizabeth...
