Summer in Seville for Silkstone Barbie and Victoire Roux on Etsy now


New Dolls

The Dutch Barbie World blog posted about these new dolls called Danidolls, (a Korean Doll Company) here is the link incase you missed seeing these. I think they are adorable, the fashions are modern and look well done. I love the long loose hair for playing and styling. The articulation and quality look great and they are priced similar to Silkstone or Integrity etc…the faces are very pretty. I think I am going to order one, I love unique dolls for my collection and these will fit in perfectly. The website shows tons more pics and there is a forum type of chat board as well.

Pearl of Love for Silkstone Barbie and Victoire Roux on Etsy now

This ensemble features the Lemongrass Bolero and can be found under jackets on my PDF Pattern page. The pieces are smaller, but easy to assemble and I fully lined the garment and used the main fabric to face the front for the wing collar and left a slit in the back lining to turn. I recommend trying this in the 16 inch size first to get the feel of how it makes up, then try it in the 12 inch size, doing the exact same sewing process. Even the smallest of patterns can be made up if all of the seams can easily be sewn and fully lining give this little bolero a polished look. Think in miniature while sewing and you will be amazed at your results. LOL

New Patterns on the Flash Widget

I have added new patterns to the flash widget for download, the edged blouse and long trumpet skirt in both 12 and 16 inch size. These are basic patterns and work best using a fine modal or jersey, add very little seam allowances when you cut and the edged blouse works well using a lace or organza ribbon to trim the edges. Simply sew a ruffle trim to the right side of the neck, arm, sleeve and hem edges, then turn back and top stitch, the trim keeps the edge from stretching too much when top stitching and give a nice finished look.  You could choose a preruffled trim or ruffle it yourself, also a raw circular piece of the knit sew on the same way creates a nice organic look, you can make these various widths for different results. The possibilities of trimming out this easy pattern are endless, beading, sequins, embroidered florals and ribbon flowers etc…anything goes. Happy sewing.
