How about a few more “lace up the front” dresses?

~*~ Just a quick reminder that Felicity’s Fall Fancy dress ends this evening on Ebay. You can see the listing by clicking on the picture at the right side bar or you can click HERE and be taken to the auction. I hope you’ll take a peek…

A few days ago I did a post on the many Felicity dresses I’ve created over the last 10 years. I’m not sure why, but that day I almost broke a record on the number of views from people looking at my blog. My record is 512 in a single day for THIS post… Felicity’s dresses boasted me a whopping 486 hits. I missed breaking that record by 27 hits. Oh well…

Several of you mentioned you loved the lace up fronts on several of Felicity’s dresses… That gave me an idea for today’s post. I had to do something simple because Saturday is our big International Thanksgiving Dinner. There was definitely no time for sewing yesterday and today so simple posts will have to suffice!

I actually could only think of just a few lace up front dresses, besides Felicity’s… So I was as thrilled as I hope you’ll be when you see all these new lace up front dresses… Some wonderfully sweet, some a bit on the “what was she thinking” when she made that…some with real lace up front ribbons; some with lace up front appliques! :o)

I hope you’ll enjoy these…

This last one was a special dress I made for Kirsten…

You remember me saying I LOVED this picture of Elizabeth showing off her long neck?

Well, I’m crazy about this picture of Kirsten too… Maybe it’s the way it was centered with that moon showing just above her head…

I hope you enjoyed those shots of my girls in lace up front dresses…

See you Monday,
Blessings, Jeanne

Elizabeth said, “Hey, what about all the Colonial dresses I’VE modeled?”

“Sorry, Elizabeth, I was laying in bed last night, when I realized I had more dresses from the Colonial era that YOU had modeled…” I thought it was only fair that I show everyone “her” dresses! I don’t think anyone will mind.

Let’s start the slideshow with Elizabeth as the center of attention!

This is one of my very favorite pictures on ANY of my dolls. I just LOVED Elizabeth’s long neck in pictures!

Whew! I think we are done with Colonial dresses… except to find out what happens with Fall Fancy! :o)

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne

A look back at my many Felicitys modeling my many dresses for her…

As I listed Felicity’s new Fall Fancy dress, I thought back at the many dresses I have made my 3 different Felicity dolls and thought you’d like to go back in time with me as we look at some of them…

I have a list of the dresses but sadly I am missing pictures of the first dozen or more. I wish I had pictures of them so you could see how I have improved in my sewing for her. I am the first to admit some of them are a bit lacking in Colonial realism… I was trying but hadn’t quite gotten it all together! :o)

these are the ones I’m missing…
Spring Splendor, Blue Beauty, Classic Colonial, Aqua Stripe, Graceful in Green, Colonial Charm Polonaise, Blue Polonaise, Green and Gold for Felicity, Burgundy Beauty, Simply Sweet Khaki, Christmas Charm, Radiant in Red, Green Apples for Felicity.

I thought I’d show you the dress and then zoom in on one aspect of it… maybe my favorite part of the dress…starting with my oldest dresses from back in 2007…

Okay, so now we’re all caught up to today’s dress…

Now, just from a learning point of view… what do you think I have improved the most on since I started making dresses for Felicity? I’m a big girl, I can take it… I LOVE constructive criticism… that’s how I improve… :o)

Or if you don’t feel you can say anything, perhaps you can pick a favorite… that might be just as hard to do… :o)

Thanks for being such great fans of my blog.. I’ve gotten some really nice emails lately and some new subscribers… Welcome all the newbies! :o)

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne

The Giveaway Winners and Felicity’s “Fall Fancy” is Finally Finished!

There’s no sense in me putting anything here first but the names of the winners, because I know you’ll skip over anything that’s not Giveaway related… So without delay, there were 25 people who entered the Giveaway and weren’t the entries for favorite side dishes wonderful! It made me so hungry. Dressing/Stuffing was the big winner and there were probably a dozen different recipes represented for it!

Okay, okay… I put everyone’s name down and shuffled the pieces of paper…

…and then at the stroke of midnight I drew out the first name…

Bonnie Sullivan! I forgot to mention that whoever had their name drawn first would get the white pair and the second name would get the pink pair… I hope that’s okay with the winners… so Bonnie, I’ll send out the white pair to you…just send me your address! :o)

The second name I drew out was…

… Charlotte A. So you’ll get the pink pair… You can send me an email and I’ll get your pink thigh highs out to you as well.

Thank you everyone and a special congrats to our 2 winners!

I thought you might like to see a few pictures of Felicity’s Fall Fancy dress set that has “finally” been listed on Ebay.

I didn’t show the inside lining of her hat on my Ebay listing, but you can see it…

…and here is her reticule with the knots pulled to the inside of the casing…

How about a few pictures of the dress with the yellow linen panel to the backside…

Marilyn suggested we see the dress on a dark haired doll, so I chose Nora, my #55, to do the honors…

If you would like to see the listing on Ebay and read the story line for this dress set, you can click HERE, or click on the picture at the top right side bar…

Don’t forget, Ebay changed categories around and you won’t find my dress if you just type in American Girl Felicity, like you used to be able to do. You can type in American Girl Fall Fancy and it will come up, or you can type in American Girl Felicity Doll Dress and it will come up. Ebay makes us seamstresses who sew for the dolls list our things under “modern doll clothing” so it’s hard to find things sometimes…

Well, I hope you are as happy as I am about getting this dress set listed…It seems I’ve been working on it for a very long time…

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne
