1950's dresses are up for sale.

I put the long gown on Amber today and she looks so lovely in it, and insisted on being the model.  So who am I to disagree with the uppity miss Stanhope?

I've listed both the dress I made whilst publishing the 1950's Chic pattern (SSP-035) in my Etsy shop.  They look lovely  on the girls and I'm so reluctant to part with them, because those skirts! So much fabric.  Lots of swishy petticoats.

For the calf-length dress, I mad a shoulder wrap and added trim.  It's such a pretty fabric, and I love the look.

Both dolls look proper girlie.  :)

I've added skintone tights, because a girl can never have too many of those, and they do finish the outfits nicely.

For my next trick, I'm planning my first ever pattern for Deja-Vu dolls by Tonner.   I've had a few enquiries as to whether I will be sewing for those pretty girls, so I bought the most inexpensive nude one that I could find, on eBay, and I'm rather taken with her. Her scale and size makes me look forward to drafting something fabulous.

So yes. I will be sewing for Deja Vu.   :)

But first, I have a leotard to make for Evangeline, so I can get the Edwardian style outfits listed for sale.
