Back On Track

Thank you to all my loyal readers for your encouraging comments, but I am back on track again and thanks to you, a lot sooner than I expected.
 
For sometime now, I have wanted to make something special for a very supportive colleague who owns a Fairyland LittleFee Lishe and knowing her doll's personality, I knew I had just the right fabric for the job. So I delved into the depths of my fabric stash and finally found just the piece I was looking for, then I pulled out one of my basic patterns and began to cut and sew.

"Look ma, I found a pumpkin!"

"Oh wow! Matching bloomers too."

"And don't you just love the bow?"
 
Ancelina donned another wig and did a marvellous job of modelling this little Gothic number for me.
 
So as you can see, I managed to follow this all the way through from conception to photo shoot without loosing concentration. (She, rather proudly, pats herself on the back!)

  1. Fantastic job!!! I love the bow in the back and the fabric is super cute (well as cute as skulls can get :p).

    I'm so sorry to have come here a day too late and miss your previous post, I would have loved to help :(

    1. Thank you, I am happy with the bow and as much as I like the Goth fabric, I may do a couple of cutsie pastel ones in a similar style.

      Oh gosh don't worry Alejandra, I often have days like that and I just have to motivate myself to attempt to do things one at a time.

    1. Thanks Night Owl...I have a thing about undies and always like my dolls "dressed underneath", no bear bottoms for me! So I couldn't possibly give a dress without the bloomers, that would be sacrilege. LOL!

    1. Thanks Grandmommy, I'm so pleased you like it, but really it's not so hard when you draft your own patterns. :)

    1. Thank you Lily, funnily enough I thought of you while making this outfit. It would certainly go well with your dolls, but which one I wonder? :)

  5. That's one adorable outfit. I'm sure your colleague will love it. If someone makes something especially for you, that's so much better than someone buying something for you.

    I'm glad you're feeling better. :o)

    Hugs!

  7. Wow, that dress looks pretty gorgeous! I love the fabric you used for it. Will you be putting any of those dresses (in different fabric) with the bloomers on your etsy store? I can totally see Rune wearing something like that!

    1. Thank you Alasse, yes I do have plans for some pastels in this style, but not until next week I'm afraid. It's back to painting for me at least for the next day or so. :)
