I needed a lab coat for a thematic doll photoshoot (I’ll post it later, don’t worry), and there is a good MSD pattern available for free, so I made one and it turned out great! I’d never guess that I can make a coat with lapels. This lab coat is made of off-white cotton poplin… Continue reading Lab coat
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
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. Grab your notebooks, calendars or smartphones and make a note: it’s the first Sunday of the convention, on July 3rd, at noon in… Continue reading Doll clothes sewing workshop at Festival fantazie!
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
