Nip and Tuck


It all began with the cotton jersey stockings . . .


then came the arm warmers with a lace cuff . . .


the spotted voile bloomers . . .


the matching blouse . . .


the ten piece knee length skirt . . .


a pretty overskirt . . .


and a coordinating belt with a ribbon tie.

The ribbon tie will be replaced at a later date with organza ribbon, when they arrive from my Etsy supplier. I am so pleased with how this all turned out, it's all been made without a pattern. I just draped, cut and sewed, with a few minor nip and tucks here and there.

I will show you the completed outfit on the doll when the wig I have chosen for her arrives from JPop.

    1. Hi Giac,
      I'm hoping the wig and ribbons don't take too long to arrive as I really want to finish this outfit before beginning another. If you love these fabrics, just wait to see what else is in store. :)
      Big hug to you too!,

  2. Very cute outfit from what I can see so far. Having never developed the skills myself, I always admire people who can sew such small an detailed items.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the finished doll.

    1. Thank you. I love sewing as you can gather from previous posts. it's something I have done for many years in one form or another, but it is something you can be taught . . . you should give it a go. :)

      Hopefully the completed doll won't be too far away . . . now to finish Seraphine's outfit.
      Cheers,

  3. I am totally envious of folks with a talent like yours! I can never do that, I need patterns!!!! I can't wait to see more, but man, I'm loving the combination... plus, I'm such a sucker for stripes! XD

    1. Come on Heather, you're making me blush.:) I'm sure if you put your mind to it, you could do it too! I love stripes too, especially when it comes to dolly tights.
      cheers,
