Sharing a New Design

I was commissioned to make short length knickers with suspenders for one of my customers. Of course they are much cuter in person than I can capture with the camera ;o)
{Click on the photos to enlarge!}

The knickers alone....



...and with my Kaye Wiggs MSD Annabella modeling:





I was also asked to make these pieces:






I do take commissions, and I actually prefer that to selling on Etsy or eBay. Please click the animated email icon at the upper left for direct inquires. Most of the fashions I sew can be made in other sizes!

I have listed the short knickers in my Etsy shop, they are made to order and you choose the Fabric. Cotton, corduroy & lightweight denim are best choices. These can be made in all sizes, click the animated email icon at the upper left to inquire directly.

Nikki Britt Studios & MDCC (Modern Doll Collectors Convention)

I was contacted by Nikki Britt and asked if I would create outfits to fit a new doll she was debuting at this years MDCC (September 11-14). I was very honored and excited to be considered to sew for Autumn Brook, the doll Nikki was debuting!

Autumn is a tiny BJD (ball jointed doll) approximately 8" tall.

Below are photos of Autumn with the tiny little fairy named Tillamook, also created by Nikki, she meets on a walk in the woods. (Photos are courtesy of Nikki Britt Studios and shared with her permission.)







This is a photo of the sales table Nikki had at the convention. It shows several of the other characters she created in her 'Little Fairy Tails BJDs' series.

Oh my.....!

Gosh I had no idea it had been so long since I posted anything on my blog! I have been very busy, nose to the grindstone, forever trying to catch up it seems. I am making good progress, but I always feel like I am way behind! :o(

I have some commission pieces that I would like to share with you. There are several photos. Remember, you can click on the photo to enlarge it!

These were made to fit Iplehouse BID tiny BJDs....along with jumper sets (on right) for Kaye Wiggs MSD size girls.



For the Iplehouse KID size BJDs...those are between the Tiny and MSD size at 13.8"/34.5cm tall and feel a quite nice size in hand!



Lonnie (IH KID) models one of the blouse & Slacks sets....



Then there were ruffled dresses in Kaye Wiggs MSD size.....



a couple modeled by Annabella...



Two for Tonner's Tyler Wentworth....



Finally two outfits entirely in white, in KW MSD size. Annabella models again....




I am also working on Jackie Kennedy suits, Princess Diana outfits and a surprise that I can't tell anyone about.....yet! ;o)
Oh, and I nearly forgot about two outfits for donation to the Ellowyne Ennui 2013 Retreat!

So you see, posting on my blog wasn't top of my to-do list, but neither was hanging out at the computer. I found long ago that if I wasn't careful the computer would soak up a lot of my time! :o)

However, I must admit to making quick posts on my FaceBook fan page.

I hope everyone is enjoying the Summer, and wish you all a wonderful day!

Iplehouse Lonnie Gets Clothing Made to Fit!

When Lonnie arrived I didn't have anything ready for her to wear in her size. In fact, in her first two photos she was wearing a Little Fee dress as a top, that wouldn't even close up in the back! ;o)

I needed to get patterns made and tested as I had orders (which I am behind on due to my sewing machine crashing and now my brother's heart surgery :o( ) so I worked some of them out. Here then are a few examples...

Click photos to enlarge
White cotton batiste blouse and cotton slacks:



Close up of blouse:



Tiered cotton sun dress, square neck style:



Cotton sun dress with straps style (have not added buttons to bodcie front yet):



And a comparison photo showing my Kaye Wiggs Nelly on the left, Kaye Wiggs Annabella at center and Lonnie on the right. Notice that no one is really looking where they are supposed to in this shot, LOL!



Have a great day!!

Annabella shows off her Overalls!

I was asked to make overalls in Kaye Wiggs MSD size.
After I have worked out a pattern I like to experiment with something practical, something I can use if it all comes together the way I thought it should. Here is the result of that experiment...

{Click on photos for an enlarged view!}




I made a couple of small changes, and then worked them in the denim. At the time, I totally forgot to top-stitch the straps so I did that after the photos.







The top-stitched straps...



The denim set also included a sleeveless a corduroy hoodie...



You know that I make 99% of my patterns, however I don't want to re-invent the wheel and will use/alter a few other patterns as well. I altered a MHD Designs pattern to help out with the overalls, and used a GraceFaerie Designs pattern for the hoodie.

I do have the overalls listed in my Etsy Shop, however don't forget you can order directly from me at any time and save me the selling fees! ;o) Use the email icon at the top left.


I hope everyone is enjoying a great weekend!

There's a New Girl in the House!

Today I received a new model, an Iplehouse Lonnie! I am over the moon with excitement, she is such a cute little thing!

She is a BJD (ball jointed doll) in an in-between Tiny and MSD size, measuring 13.8"/34.5cm. I will be sewing for her size soon!

Here is a quick photo of her...she couldn't wait for anything proper to wear and borrowed a Little Fee sun dress that fits her like a top, LOL!

Have a wonderful week!

Denim & Pink!

Annabella models a commission, Denim & Pink!
(Click the photos to enlarge them.)



The ruffled denim jumper differs from the usual as it is pleated under the bodice rather than gathered. The stitching holding the pleats is difficult to see in the photo.




Under the jumper is a long sleeved top and tights!

I hope everyone has had a great start to a new week!

We got 6 inches of snow last week, yesterday it was 45 degrees with 39 today, but we are expecting another 5-7" of snow tomorrow. That's Winter in Iowa, never know what is going to happen next, LOL!
