We’ve attended this year’s Czech BJD community Christmas Fairy event! You can apply yourself (to make gifts) and your BJDs (to receive gifts) and have fun making presents for another collector’s dolls. I am sorry to say I didn’t make any pictures of the gifts I was sending away but at least you can see… Continue reading Dolly Christmas presents
As you may have noticed in the Halloween meet-up gallery, Sashenka’s victorian skirt is finished! And this lovely gentleman noticed how it suits her! 🙂 The skirt is made of two flounces attached to one belt. The bottom flounce aka basic layer has a pattern like this: The top flounce is a simple rectangle strip… Continue reading 1850 black day dress: a skirt
My photos from a local BJD collectors’ meet-up in Prague. (Last year was nice too.) Prague is a beautiful historic city with tons of photoshoot locations to choose from. There were several local people in the park but they usually just gave us a curious look and maybe added several compliments on our dolls 🙂
To add to the upcoming Halloween spirit, I have a headless doll body on a stand here. Alexandra’s head will be going off for a new face-up on Monday. It will be done by Noodles. Her old one is a custom face-up by Iplehouse – a compromise of Leona A and Kassia A. I love… Continue reading Behold the head of a doll!
Oh dear, that’s… FLUFFY! I simply don’t like sewing wires into a fabric, so I made voluminous double-circle petticoat with two gathered flounces. I love how the layers came out. And here is the pattern as promised: This pattern was designed for a MSD ball-jointed doll, Iplehouse J.I.D. girl. The petticoat has 19 cm waist… Continue reading 1850 black day dress: a petticoat (+ free pattern)
I admit: I have tons of unfinished sewing BJD projects (should I mention my three cardboard boxes full of fabrics I bought for some projects and not started them yet?). Two BJD skirts without press studs, two skirts cutted but not sewn together, the same for Erik’s basic blue T-shirt… and one black T-shirt with… Continue reading Biohazard in progress
Erik has got a new long-sleeved T-shirt from a knit fabric I’ve had in my box for two years. Handsome boy, isn’t he? According to my husband, men’s stripped tops are told to signify a lack of sexual experience. So far I do not believe it. 🙂 For Alexandra, I tried to alter her cap… Continue reading Some more tees
I’m in the middle of some calibrations… (ahem) preparations for my doll clothes sewing workshop. I started making this skirt a half year ago and put it on the shelf. Circle skirts require some effort and are a bit tricky so I said myself that showing one at my workshop might become useful. This full… Continue reading Circle skirt – 20 panels!
I made this map for myself to know where is my closest fabric store. It will might get useful for you too! 😉
