Mint Creme

I made Kisa a new dress for summer. Actually, I finished it over a week ago, but I have been a bit lazy about taking pictures, and then the lighting was really bad because we were getting rain/thunderstorms. So I just got around to taking pictures today.

The dress is made of mint green organic cotton jersey, and undyed organic cotton pointelle. I still need to make shoes to go with it, but here it is:


My birthday present arrived a little early (not that I'm complaining lol) ^_^ Her name is Katya, she is a 35cm porcelain BJD made by JRDolls in Russia. I haven't decided a lot about her background and personality yet, but she is half-Croatian and half-Ukrainian, and she's quite a sexy, sassy girl. 

In the photos she is wearing a dress I made her - it's all organic cotton (poplin and jersey), and was inspired by life beneath the sea. There are "plants" made of lapis lazuli around the hem, with glass bead "air bubbles" floating upward. I still need to make the shoes, she got here so quickly that I didn't get them done yet! But I wanted to take pics of her, so here they are:

Just wanted to share some pics of a little summer dress I made for Ciara Angelique ^-^

WIP: Snegurochka Costume, Part 3

I finished the dress for Elena's Snegurochka costume the other day. It's made of organic cotton, with the two trims that I wove sewn onto it. If I have enough beads left after making the rest of the costume, I may come back and do some light beadwork on this dress, we'll see. Most of it will be covered by the coat. Anyways, here are some pics ^-^

Next up I will be making the coat. Which will probably take a long time, as it is going to have a lot of beadwork....
