This is the suit that started it All! Something took over my body. It would not let up until I finished this outfit, from beginning to end. And, by beginning to end, I mean, 9 pattern revisions and 5 different muslin samples, later. This does not include the written instructions, or the many video clips that were used to make an awesome tutorial! But, what I can say, is that it was all worth it!
“Cheers” to all the Lovers of Springtime. And, happy first day of this beautiful season. Now’s the time we get in the mood for marvelous floral displays, bright bold colors of nature, and the kind of weather that we wish could be forever.
Perhaps you’ve had in your mind of doing something that you’re passionate about. Hopefully it’s sewing (If, you don’t know how to sew.. hint hint). And, also creating loving memories. Here’s to a beautiful and prosperous Spring.
If you’re not organized, you’re operating in chaos. Chaos may be a harsh term, but it fit my circumstance. From the time I began designing doll clothes, I have accumulated so many bits and pieces. These bits and pieces consist of Patterns in the form of paper copies, paper revisions, muslin samples, and final samples, all stored away in a carrying bag and pinned on my design bulletin board. I knew I would have to face this pile sooner, or later. Well, today was the day. I finally got organized.
It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It was quite amazing to see how far I’ve come in a years time. There were even a couple of patterns I designed, that I totally forgot about! That was a nice surprise. Even while organizing, I came up with new concepts to try out. What was I so afraid of?
With my newly organized book of patterns, I can better prepare myself to produce more amazing patterns for you to enjoy.
All you need is a big ‘ole binder (or, two), plastic sheet protectors, and dividers. The dividers can help you to categorize the patterns (ie: doll/ size, clothing category, seasons, etc.) The plastic sheet protectors are great for holding the cut pattern pieces, and the sewn samples. Even if you didn’t have the chance to sew the item yet, place the cut pieces in the protector for safe keeping.. right!? (I just gave myself another idea, with that one!)
Get in the sewing mood, with this Springtime PDF dress pattern.
Spring, that is. I knew somewhere deep down, that Winter had not had the last say. It’s cold Everywhere. Even Florida is experiencing a cold like never before.
At least we have cute doll dresses to take our minds off of that! Speaking of “Spring” and “cute little dresses”, have you discovered my Best Selling PDF pattern, yet? Complete with cute little tie ribbons, this dress is sure to delight!
2017 Inuguration is the fashion gift, that just keeps on giving! So far, we were able to dress our dolls in the Ralph Lauren suit that Melania wore to the Inuguration.
And, now, we have Ivanka to credit for wearing the beautiful Oscar de la Renta Jacket, on Inuguration day. If you would like to add this pattern to your library, it is available for immediate download in Etsy Shop.
