This is the promised post about Alexandra’s violet dress worn at the Valentine BJD meet-up Prague. Her “dress” is actually a turtleneck T-shirt with a separate trained skirt and blue satin ribbon covering the skirt top. The turtleneck T-shirt is a prototype of a pattern I drawed two weeks ago. As you can see, the… Continue reading Flower petal skirt with a train
I’ve finally seen the new Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi last Friday and it was awesome! I’ll have to think some matters over but my overall impression is positive. NO SPOILERS here though – and I ask the same from you because hey, let’s not be assholes, could we? Tchibo released some SW… Continue reading Star Wars doll tees!
Could it be almost two years since I made that makeshift Merida costume? It was for a challenge photoshoot “Disney stories”; the dress was actually pinned together on Alexandra’s back and never finished afterwards because its pattern was totally unfitting. I’ve posted this picture in the 2015 gallery only. This dress and arrow do not… Continue reading Merida the Brave: another dress in progress
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
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 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. 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 was cleaning up and sorting my fabrics last week. I store them in three cardboard boxes. These are all knits I have found: Did I mention that I love stripes? And green color? I plan to use them for doll T-shirts except the last two ones. The green “sweater” is actually a non-fraying knit… Continue reading My knits inventory
I love to wear these skirts myself – so why not to make a one for my doll? First step is constructing your own pattern. Have no fear, it’s easy! Get some paper, pencil, ruler and a tape measure. Measure your doll’s waist and hips circumferences and the length of your future skirt. My Alexandra’s… Continue reading Tutorial: make a long ruffled skirt for your doll
