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! 😉
Okay, I’m a bit nervous but still happy to announce my first dolly sewing workshop! It will be a part of Festival fantazie, the largest local all-fandoms-convention at Chotebor in Czech republic.

My husband has left for a book fair so I had no assistant. I usually take advantage of him to hold a reflection card or umbrella when… Continue reading “Fuchsia pink,” says the label
I made another skirt using a different technique. The yellow skirt’s ruffles had been sewn regular way “right sides together”. This one has top-stitched ruffles sewn “wrong side to right side”. I am already in the spring mood, so I picked a stripped T-shirt for Alexandra. Her outfit is just calling for a straw hat,… Continue reading Another ruffled hippie skirt
I’ve got a lovely gift from my friend Anna. She loves to knit and crochet and made this doll-sized Ravenclaw scarf for me. (Harry Potter fans? Anyone? 🙂 ) I only took several quick pictures in the evening. It is set in a local park which plays the role of the Forbidden Forest. I borrowed… Continue reading Go Ravenclaw!
The first capture is a “table bowling” set – I bought it in Levne knihy (kind of “dollar store” with books and gifts). For “historical” bowling, I think of replacing the plastic balls with big wooden beads. Bowling was very popular game since ancient times.
