I don't usually make real resolutions for the New Year because invariably by the end of the first week I'll have broken them all.....and then I get all annoyed with myself and often will go completely in the opposite (read 'wrong') direction! But I did say to myself over the last couple of days that I would get some sewing done again and this time I would get out of my 'comfort zone' and use some of the patterns that I've had ages but never, or rarely, used. So today I did just that and I made my new girl a pair of jodhpurs! I've had this pattern for as long as I have collected BJDs but have never used it, so now I have!
I would like to have used a beige twill or at least heavy cotton for these but didn't have any so soft fine corduroy had to do!
I hope you like them on my new girl, Fairyland Mini Fee tanned Chloe, who is trying out a different wig for a little while. The jumper in the photos was a gift many years ago from my lovely friend May who was a wonderful knitter. Sadly May died a few years back, so all her knits are highly treasured by me and my dolls. The suede flat cap is also something I made many years ago now (yes, I never seem to throw anything away!) The shoes are from either Releaserain or Mimiwoo, I can't remember which!
Thanks for visiting, have a great week everyone!
