all about Nina!

This week's challenge was to design a day to evening look for Nina.  I made her a blue silk dress with a light weight cotton jacket.  The jacket is waist length and close fitting.  The dress has a deep V back.  I will send the model down the runway wearing the red pumps.

girls on stilts!

This challenge was preformers on stilts.  The judges didn't like anything to costumy so I went with a day look.  I made a simple silk blouse over raw silk pants.  I had her hair styled sleek to go with her day look.  She would be wearing some simple gold studs for the complete day time look.

I used old Bic stick pens for stilts so I could stick her into the ground outside.

pet store challenge

I don't have an actual pet store locally.  I have a pet aisle in Walmart.  It's kind of thin on "things" and heavy on pet food.  I started with a faux leather dog bandana and a rope dog toy.

Accessories from the Piperlime wall.

first challenge!

This is the first doll dress I've made since I was a kid.  It has some "fit issues" but my granddaughter said "I'd totally wear that."  Good enough for me.

I wear cotton nightgowns and had one that didn't fit the way I like so I used it and didn't use any "sheet."
