~ Autumn Lace ~ for American Girl Molly is finished

I worked really hard to get Molly’s dress finished and when I was just about done, I decided she needed ONE more piece…

I think you saw the dress all completed, but here it is with better lighting…

I added a skinny little tie belt so it could fit wonderfully on any doll…

Here is her headband….

…and Rebecca made Molly a pretty ivory glass pearl bracelet…

This is Molly’s new pair of socks…

Just when I thought I was all done, I decided she needed a pretty furry cape to go with her dress. I found a piece of cream curly fur in my stash and made this short cape. It’s lined with white netting so it’s as light as a feather and hangs wonderfully. There is no bulk at all. The only thing is, the netting in her sleeve caps makes the cape stand up on her shoulders just a bit.

Here is a picture of Rebecca with the cape on. You can see how it lays on her shoulders without having puffy sleeves underneath.

I added 2 ivory pearl buttons to the front and attached a piece of snag free velcro as a closure.

Thanks for taking a peek,

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne

Emmie wonders about her new dress…

First things first…
Just a quick note to remind you Nora’s dress, “Victorian Elegance” ends this evening on Ebay. You can see it by clicking the picture at the right side bar or you can click HERE and be taken to the auction…

This is the dress set…

Ever since Emmie came to live with me, I have wanted to take her wig off and see what she looked like in different colored wigs. Tonight I got that chance and thought I’d share with you a few of those looks. When I was talking to Lana about painting her, I wanted her to be versatile enough that she could wear a blonde wig sometimes or a red one, and not be totally stuck with only wearing dark wigs. I had her paint her eyelashes brown but not black to help with that. Here are a few looks…see if you have a preference.

This is the wig she came in…

This is a long carrot red “Ginger” wig by Monique… It’s a synthetic mohair and my favorite kind of wig…

This is a little platinum blonde wig I cut a while back…

This black wig is a Miranda wig and I’ve never used it before… I got it for Lian, but I always keep her in the bob…

She looks pretty cute in strawberry blonde too…this wig is called Sassy.

Elin or Ellowyne usually have this wig on, but I stretched and tugged and got it on Emmie. It’s a Kana Wild by Jpop wigs.

Recently I told you I had held back a piece of fabric that I wanted to make Emmie’s first dress from. This is it… a dimity and very dainty and lightweight. I already had the wool felt to make a hat…and it matches perfectly.

But I have been debating about this piece too… I picked up this blue piece of wool felt at St. Mary’s Antique Mall recently, and it goes wonderfully with this cream and blue print…

So, do you have a favorite wig and do you have a favorite fabric? Inquiring minds want to know… (Actually, just Jeanne wants to know!)

See you Monday,
Blessings, Jeanne

“Spring Fever” dresses for Ten Ping and Noel are up for sale…

I added a “surprise” post on Sunday and several of you saw it… well, I think a few more than several. I couldn’t wait until Monday’s post to share them, so I added a link to the listings on Ebay for both dresses. Ten Ping, my little 8″ Ruby Red Galleria cutie is just that… as cute as can be in this sweet little pink dress. It might be simple, but it sure makes me smile when I see her in it! Here are a couple of my favorite photo’s from our session…

Noel’s dress looks equally as darling on her and she is standing on my cutting table wearing this dress like she’s going to be allowed to keep it… sorry, Noel, that’s not the way things work around here…but I promise you, there will be more to model…Here are a few shots from her Ebay photo shoot…

I let the girls pick their favorite “group” shot, and this is the one they picked…

Marilyn mentioned something about everyone not knowing just how tiny these girls were…and thought maybe if I showed them next to something familiar, it might give a better idea of their size. I decided most everyone knows of the American Girls and how big they are, so I placed Noel and Ten Ping next to Eden… and they do look extra tiny beside her.

I mentioned I had such tiny scraps, I wasn’t sure I could even get hair bows made for the girls…but miracle of miracles, my scraps were just enough…barely enough! I rounded up every single scrap I could find on my cutting table and ones I had tossed aside and this is what was left from that fat quarter I started with. Not much, is it?

I used a piece of tulle (netting) for the back side of both bows…Here is Ten Ping’s tiny bow… it’s the tiniest bow I know I’ve ever made… there was no way to attach a snap clip to it, so I added a tiny white ball head pin and the winner can just stick it through the hair bow and into their dolls hair.

If you’d like to see the listings, you can click on the pictures at the right side bar or you can click on these links…
