My friend told me about this Star Wars merchandising. It’s a miniature stormtrooper helmet filled with candy, stickers and a small toy. Honestly, I was more interested in the helmet itself because it seemed to be of perfect scale for my dolls. There was an obstacle in my way, of course – I had to… Continue reading Stormtrooper helmet for a doll
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
These photos were taken at David Weber’s panel and signing event in Prague I’ve told you about on Saturday. Sashenka was watching the debate from a chair in the front line. During the break, I asked David to pose for me. He was all eager to cooperate – he was taking pictures of Sashenka before… Continue reading Alexandra & David – wait for it – Weber!

It was labeled as “blouse material”. First fitting and pinning. I added bigger seam allowances than usual to be sure. But for next time, I’ll buy some thinner… Continue reading RMN uniform: the trousers

Don’t buy the cheapest (and very thin) knit, the machine will try to eat it and the knit will make ugly fluffs in the bottom bobbin space. Or whatever will come to its mind, you can never be sure. This turtleneck is… Continue reading RMN uniform: the turtleneck
I want to make Royal Manticoran Navy captain uniform for Sashenka; not to cosplay Honor or any other particular book character but just because white berets are so elegant and becoming. I start with this project now because of David Weber’s visit in Brno in November. David Weber is a writer and author of Honor… Continue reading New project: RMN uniform
