'Some Enchanted Evening'... part 1

I have been putting together an evening wear collection for over a year now and have lots of outfits for it... all of them requiring something small to be finished (hehe). However, this collection is becoming so large that I have decided to post outfits as I finish them instead of trying to fit the whole collection in one gigantic entry!

I'm very happy with how this sparkly blue dress turned out. Stella was very happy to model it for me...

The dress is made from a blue yarn interwoven with metallic silver to make it glittery. It has a blue/purple ruffle that matches the stole. The belt is metallic thread moss stitch with a diamante, heart shaped belt buckle. The flower in her hair is a knitted flower in metallic thread with a diamante button in the centre. The shoes are made from the same yarn as the dress. All pieces designed by me.



I also have another very large collection, the bohemian collection, that I will have to post as I finish each outfit. This collection is also too large for a single entry and I keep coming up with new ideas to add to it...
Until next time!

Mindy Monday... Red Dress in the Garden

I have quite a few things on the go for Mindy. She will have quite a collection soon. Today though, I just want to share this photo of her relaxing in the garden with her red dress. I think she looks pretty.

Lots more to post in the coming weeks so stay tuned!

'Tiptoe Through the Tulips'...

I have had this outfit made up for over a year... all I had left to do was sew up the boots. Terrible isn't it? I have over 20 doll outfits that are mostly finished and only require something very small to complete them. The problem is I keep starting new projects before I finish them off! Once I get an idea I HAVE to start it. I can't help myself...

I know... I'm baaaaaaaad.

Anyway, here is a classic shift dress, with flower embroidery, and a matching jacket and boots.

Modelled by the lovely Ren.


Dress and boots designed by me, jacket modified from an AK Traditions pattern
 Until next time!
