Today I've been having so much fun trying clothing on my new girl....but what a mess I've made of my sewing table!!! Here's how it looked at lunchtime today....never mind the floor space around my chair which was full of boxes of clothes, shoes and wigs!!!!
But I did have a good time trying outfits on Reira! It would appear that she can wear some of my old Sindy dresses that I saved from my childhood....she says that she loves anything 'vintage'....I'm thinking of calling her Sarah, after our very own Sarah of Vintage Sasha, who we all know loves vintage outfits :)
I thought I'd share a few photos below of her in some of the outfits she tried....I have to say that she has a style all her own!
Firstly here she is wearing a cute dress which belonged to my childhood Sindy, so this would be from the late 60s, early 70s. It's not as white as it used to be, despite several washes in a mild bleach solution....but it doesn't have any holes or tears, thankfully :) She is wearing it with black knee high socks that I made, plus some Doc Marten boots...
Next she tried on this pretty white dress with short puffed sleeves which is made by Kish for Bitty Bethany, it's not particularly 'vintage' being from about 2004, but she likes it and teamed it with white bloomers and striped socks that I made, a very cute sheep hat by LalaTroop and cotton flower print hi-top sneakers:
Next she tried this green corderoy smocked dress, again a Sindy outfit from the late 60s, early 70s, worn with MSD sized thigh highs....which are waaay too long for her shorter legs but what they eye don't see and all that...white boots and a little knitted beret which I've had for ages. Unfortunately because of it's 'advanced years' the elastic has perished on the puffed sleeves and smocking on the dress:
Later, because Reira wanted to go for a walk around the garden and it was a bit chilly, she added a lovely plaid duffle coat by Robert Tonner for Marley Wentworth:
I hope you've enjoyed Reira's little fashion show....and hope you all have a lovely week :)
