Sew & Sew....& Sew!

One of my lovely 'customers' who is also a good friend, asked me to make four overall/dungaree sets for her Zwergnase Juniors.  She suggested one for each season, so I've been having fun putting together fabrics and styles for these sets.  So far I have made spring, summer, and autumn, so just have winter to complete.  I thought I'd share what I've done so far as I haven't taken many other photos of my own dolls to share with you......and I don't want to let my blog slide!  I hope to rectify the lack of dolly photos really soon!

My model is Marlie, a Zwergnase Junior Marlene from 2014.  Incidentally, Marlie will be moving to the UK when she has finished modelling these outfits and her cousin is coming to live here.....I will introduce her here when she arrives.

Without further ado, here we have 'spring':





 


Next up we have 'summer' which are my favourites of the three sets I've done so far:










And finally for now, we have 'autumn':







Thanks for visiting!   I hope you've enjoyed seeing the 'fruits of my labour' this week and I also hope you all have a great weekend ahead :)  I guess I'll be making a start on 'winter'!!!

  1. The four seasons is a great idea as are the representing outfits. The Summer one is my favourite too so far.

    1. Yes it is and I was glad that Jenni suggested it for her outfits because it gave me scope for choosing the fabrics with a theme in mind :)
      I like the summer one too, although I like the blouse in the spring set too.

  10. I like that used look - slit in Spring, but my favourite is Autumn. And Marlie is a great model. These photos on the roof / balcony(?) are marvelous.

  12. These are amazing, Sharon...I can't get over the amount of detail you put in throughout the design. Did you do all of that embroidery yourself?? Beautiful combination of patterns. You are so good! :)

    1. Aww thanks Farrah, glad you like them. I did indeed do the embroidery but with my sewing machine, not by hand.

    1. Thanks very much Jano! Yes, the Zwergnase Juniors really do have a lot of character. One movement of her head and she can look so different, sometimes she looks like she is surpressing a smile, very weird!!!
