New outfits for Ellowyne Wilde & A Girl for all Time.


A while ago now, I started on a very special outfit for Ellowyne, mainly because I miss sewing for her. She'll always be a firm favourite, with that beautiful face sculpt of the early dolls. .. not so keen on the latter sculpt, but I digress.

Having waited for all the bits and pieces to arrive so I could complete the outfit, I'm delighted with the results. 

Also I've finished off and listed the two Girl for all Time outfits I made whilst developing the latest sewing pattern (SSP-062.)

All are up for grabs in my Etsy shop:

First, we'll look at Ell.  Here's my lovely Saffie in her pristine white outfit. Click on the images to see them enlarged. Links are given to each sales page - where you'll find more images for each outfit.

(Do excuse my lack of writing in this post. I've put all the information in the photos.)

"Sweet Purity" 
£110.00 plus shipping:



















Next, we have the two AGAT outfits.  I love these on the girls, and they were a blast to make.

1) "Clever in Lilac"
£60.00 plus shipping:














Aaand briging up the rear:

2) "Clever in Blue"
£65.00 plus shipping:



















Phew.  Time for a coffee break. 

Next, I'll be making a version of 'Playtime' for AGAT dolls, with a view to doing the same for LD, so she can match her little Boneka sister.

Dolly stockings.

Quick one today.

Have spent the day making dolly stockings and knickers.  I've yet to finish the knickers but here are the stockings.  They're in Contrado's Florence Mesh, printed with my own design.  The stocking tops have different lingerie elastics.



Slightly time consuming, but they make beautiful little finishing touches to an outfit.

SSP-062: "Clever Miss" Sewing pattern for A Girl for all Time dolls.


There was a little two-week art holiday in the middle of developing this pattern, so I'm sorry for keeping everybody waiting.  I hope it was worth it though.  This is another of my fave designs.  I first made it for Kaye Wiggs, and now I have this lovely version for AGAT.


*Available in my Etsy shop:

*Etsy will charge EU customers VAT (This does not affect America or other non-EU countries).  I always recommend people to look in my Craftsy store anyway, as the prices fluctuate, due to the international exchange rates and may be cheaper.  I always recommend comparing prices.

My Craftsy store:

Or right here on the blog: (PayPal shopping cart)


9.25



If you do buy from me here on the blog, and you live in the EU, the rules state that I don't have to charge you VAT as it's a direct sale. Once you have cleared checkout, I will email the pattern files to you directly. Please allow me 24 hours, because of time zones. Usually it will be far quicker than that.

You can find the sales pages at the top of the blog, in tabs for each section. I will email you the pattern PDF files directly, after you've cleared checkout. Click this link to email me, if you have any queries.   I have two paper sizes, US Letter for America, and A4 for Europe.  LET ME KNOW YOUR COUNTRY, FOR THE CORRECT PAPER FORMAT.

As with the first version, there are two options for the centre panel in the bodice, depending on how adventurous you're feeling.  This one, V1, has three tiny seed bead buttons, which fasten with buttonhole loops.



And V2 has a simpler and much easier to sew plain centre panel.  I'm really enjoying working on ways of dividing up bodices, so hope to come up with new ideas for these soon.




I love these two together.



Next, I'll be doing a 'playtime' outfit for AGAT, the same for Little Darling too, to match the Boneka version.   Then I have ideas for some nice lace overlay dresses.  And than... well, loads of ideas, which is always good.
