Ellowyne Wilde pattern #007


Finished up with my latest pattern today. I'm quite lucky that I have all these tried and tested patterns ready to be sewn, photographed and written up.   It seems to be saving some time in the development stage.

Here in my Etsy store:

The latest is a set of accessories with a couple of larger items included. Leggings, leg-warmers, arm-warmers, fingerless gloves and a cropped top.  When it's all on the doll it looks like a dance outfit!  But I've used all these bits for some of the ensembles in mu Etsy store. The leggings and gloves look great with summer dresses and tunics, for example.



It also looks great on Katie, my KDF. KDF hands are BIG. Which is a tad annoying, but the gloves and arm-warmers are very stretchy and have a Lycra content, so just fit over her fingers, so hopefully they'll be fine for other slim MSDs too.



Lizette's outfit looks good with the leggings, leg-warmers and gloves as well. I chose the colours to go with it specifically, as I'm building up another outfit to list on Etsy.



And Priscilla just looks fabulous all ready for her aerobics class. ;)



I keep promising myself a break between patterns, but I'm so inspired, and I'm a bit of a workaholic when I'm well enough.   BUT. I've been a bad girl, and ordered a Patience doll from Wilde Imagination, AND found Phineas and Theodora sold as a pair on Ebay - so I impulse-bought them.  I was looking for a handsome guy, I'll be perfectly honest, and I will definitely be taking a break to enhance Phin.  I want to repaint his eyes, and maybe restyle his hair. 

I keep looking at the Iplehouse JID boys, but alas, too many pennies, so I settled for a16" Phin.  I quite like Theodora too, and she'll make a nice addition to my Wilde Imagination girls on the shelf.  I'll have three Ells, (Priscilla, Elle and Saffie) A Pru, An Amber, a Lizette, and now a Theodora.  Different doll, I know, but she should fit in with the other girls, and I'll have a full set. 

I'm hoping Caleb's clothes patterns will fit Phin without too much adjustment.  We shall see.

  2. Fab - I can see how versatile this one will be - will be purchasing shortly!!! Just got the skirt to finish off on dress number two - I have managed the puff sleeves (good instructions) and Zoe is much happier as she's now got the start of some accessories...couldn't resist combining the crochet (let's just say I might have to make me one as well!!!)

    2. Forgot to say before looking forward to seeing what you do with Phin. I so wanted to love him and Thea as we share a surname but I just couldn't feel the love for them!!! Well of course you'll see the finished dress - camera battery charging up at the mo and if I can finish the dress before 6 they may go on an outing to do a photoshoot in a much better garden than mine lol!!!

    3. Yeah, I could never make up my mind about those dolls, and then they sold out! so I think they were kind of an impulse buy. I'm sure I can tweak their face-ups to make them cute though. I hope. Heh.

      Can't wait! :D

    5. Missed this last night - I had a REALLY early night. I love the dress! I'm going to post a free tutorial of how to style the skirts and make them less 'poufy' next time I make a dress or skirt. I just keep thinking of things to do before I get around to it! Maybe I should use an existing dress, because the principle is the same.
