For Your Sunday Viewing Pleasure…

Hi everyone and happy Sunday to you.

I did get Felicity’s dress listed on Ebay and wanted to let you know. You can see it by clicking HERE or click on the picture at the right side bar.

Here are a few pictures to make you smile…

See you tomorrow,

A Saturday Slideshow for “Colonial Rose!”

I did it, I did it! I finished Felicity’s dress, “Colonial Rose!” Unfortunately there was time in my day to get the dress set all completed but not enough time to get it listed on Ebay… I’m hoping to get that done on Saturday!

I don’t always feel this way about every single outfit I make for my dolls… but this one is way up there for me… and I’m not exactly sure why. Maybe it’s the color on Felicity, maybe it’s that hankie and how well it looks with the fabric, maybe it’s the embroidery I mimicked from the hankie, or maybe it’s the look on Felicity’s face as she stands on my cutting table, saying (in unspoken words)…”Look how beautiful I am!”

Whatever it is, I hope you like it too… I was going to tease you and only give you snippets of the finished dress but I decided to go for it and let you see the dress from head to toe.

If you click on any picture it will enlarge.

I added some pretty embroidery to match the apron and think it looks nice. I decided to forego the lace fichu this time…

Tiny bows in silk ribbon were added to the sleeves.

You can also see the white pearl necklace Rebecca made for Felicity.

I used some pretty white lace and made Felicity a bonnet. A lace strap goes underneath her chin. It is fastened on one side and snaps on the other. The bow is stitched on so you don’t have to tie it every time.

She got a new pair of lacy thigh highs…and a pair of black shoes that have been decorated…

I think she looks pretty Colonial, don’t you? If I get this listed, I’ll add a link to the listing on Ebay and change my picture at the top.

See you Monday,
Blessings, Jeanne

Felicity is liking “Colonial Rose” very much…

YAY! I made some real progress on Felicity’s dress today. It’s coming along nicely and the more I finish, the more Felicity likes it. Can you see why? She looks fabulous in this rosy color! (I think I’m going to call the color Rose.) It really brings out the softness of her coloring. There’s a surprise about it? Can you guess it before I reveal it? Here are a few hints in the way of pictures…

If you click on any picture it will enlarge…

I used vintage lace on the sleeve ruffles…

Okay, did you guess what the surprise is?

It’s not a one piece dress…it’s actually 2 pieces. There’s the skirt section, which actually has enough body to stand out like this on its own without a petticoat underneath…

…and the bodice with the apron attached…

Doesn’t it look like it’s all one piece?

Here is the back with tiny buttons…

I think Felicity looks lovely in this and it’s not even finished yet… here’s one more look…

I guess I’ll see what I can get done on Friday…this one has come together pretty quickly considering I was visiting with my family part of the time too! :o)

I hope you’re liking it…

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne

I’m back at my sewing machine again…

This is so short, it might be equivalent to a “non-post!”

I’m happy to report I still remember how to use my sewing machine! It’s been a few days since I’ve been in my sewing room, so I wasn’t sure if I’d remember how things worked or not… just kidding, but it is strange for me not to sew at least something each day. Although when I show you the little bit I got finished, you’ll probably laugh and think “that’s it???”

I managed to get Felicity’s bodice constructed and the sleeves set in, but just at the sleeve cap… they aren’t stitched underneath the arm because I have to finish the sleeve edges first.

I was going to stay up late and get more done on it, but I have to get up early for a dentist appointment.. UGH… a crown! UGH again!

I thought maybe when I get home I’ll have all day to sew, so we’ll see what I might get accomplished…

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne
