Here is a dress I sewed a couple of days ago for Sienna (Bastian).....I used a very basic pattern and then added a white collar, I then made the socks and hat using some mustard coloured ribbed knit. I made the leather bag previously....she looks all ready for school now!
Every time I look at her in this hat I'm reminded of Winnie the Pooh! I think it's the 'ears' on each corner! 🌝
I also made this sleeveless summer dress, in fact I have made three of these dresses, one for Sienna and two others the same, as gifts. The fabric was from a human baby dress that I bought especially to unpick. I managed to get four dresses from it. It's such nice fabric and looks like it's handpainted, although I'm sure for the price I paid for it, it clearly isn't!!
Today I finished off an outfit for Dylan (Robin). I say 'finished off' because this outfit has been mostly made for ages, I just hadn't got around to finishing it. I think the legs could do with being a bit longer on her but it wasn't intended for her, so I'd not adapted it. I added the patch pockets by hand this morning, a challenge as I kept accidentally sewing the legs together!! Cute rabbit hat is by Dafnery Dolls here in Spain.
You may have noticed something else about Dylan! I have changed her eyes to brown glass ones, but more importantly, I have changed the colour of her lips to a lighter shade. It's not that I didn't like the custom faceup by Under the Fern, but I just wanted her to have lighter lips. So this morning I removed the existing ones and redid them in lighter shades of pastels. I'm pleased with how they've come out.
Here is a before and after comparison, before is on the left:
Apart from that, I have another new girl coming here early this week! She is a ball jointed doll from another Spanish artist, this one based in Sevilla. I love being able to support the individual BJD artists....and of course help the Spanish economy!!! Well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!
I hope you're all having a lovely weekend and that the week ahead is good for you.
