A lovely piece of floral print cotton from my stash has been amusing me this past week. With limited Internet access and having to download a completely new (and rather annoying) photo resizing program, I wonder if I will be able to show you my results. The little sun hat is finished, but the doll dress still needs some work.
Draping things, even the lightest of satin, is a bit of a task on a 16" doll. Getting it to lay just right has been my goal for the past 2 days....hence the numerous pins in the photos. A least all those tiny little buttons (beads) are on and I do love the color combination. I wasn't too thrilled with it at first. I thought it was a bit too bright for the time period. I've spent a little time browsing around an amazing vintage fashion website, DefunctFashion, and I see my color choices really aren't that outrageous. I need to add some pleated red trim to the bottom of the skirt and fashion a bustle of the yellow satin for the back. Then I will name it Summer in the South of France 1883.Ok, the server just "rejected" one of my photos. Time to get away from this machine before I smash it to bits!
