Latest Outfit – “Mina”

Icy blue and so, so soft! Ready for a special occasion!

For this dress, I used a super soft velvet-like fabric. It is very pretty and very soft but a nightmare to work with! Slippery and constantly curling at the edges. But it was worth it. I then added a couple of layers of tulle.
There are two little tulle rosettes on the bodice with little crystals in the center.

The out fit includes a shawl which can also double as a scarf. Just a little something to throw over her shoulders.

I also made a beret from the same fabric. It is lined and also has a tulle rosette & ribbon to match the dress.
Last, but not least, I made the little pumps using a non-woven fabric that I died to match the color of the dress. Three little crystals adorn the toes of the shoes.

I think Mina is lovely.

The jacket has roll collar with a pull cord with little beads. f3
The plants have decorative stitching and elastic waist. I love the little pom pom on the hat and the leg warmers just add that extra something.
Here are all the pieces.

This outfit will be for sale soon in my Etsy shop, which I’ve just opened. I haven’t really announced that yet, so it’s a “soft” opening right now. I want to add a few more things first.
(I’m a nervous wreck with this shop! Yikes! Will people like my stuff? Will they actually buy it? We’ll see).
Edit: This outfit is now for sale in my Etsy shop!

Designing for Dolls: Brooke

This is an outfit I made recently – three pieces plus shoes

It consists of a hat, tunic top, capris and shoes. The hat was made from Molly’s rain hat pattern, found here. It’s not lined, just fabric and I added the ribbon and flower. It was the first time I’ve made a hat. It actually didn’t turn out too badly.

The tunic top is a basic bodice and I added the contrasting panel in the front and contrasting cuffs to the sleeves. The front panel just doesn’t want to lay right for some reason.

The shoes are my favorite part of the outfit. I used an old purse for them and I’m not sure whether they are real leather or not. The material performed like leather – very soft leather. I’m happy with the way they turned out. I made my own pattern for these.American Girl doll clothes

So here’s Brooke modeling the outfit for us.
