imfamous boots (speak of the devil!)
These boos are even chunkier than I thought they would be from the picture - they are just begging for some Lolita dresses!
I have an idea for a little Alice & Wonderland tableau that I would love to try... I know that everyone and their sister has dress their Blythe dolls up like Alice... but it's such a great theme! I was looking at my Google+ friend's blog from the Tokyo doll show and I totally got inspired. Check out these amazing pictures!
That project will involve a little bit of planning... before I get going on that, I have 4 dresses all cut out that I plan to sew up next weekend. I was so busy this weekend and I was getting over a stomach flu that I cam down with last Wednesday evening... so I was extra tired out by all the busy-ness! I'm really looking forward to relaxing a bit more next weekend!
Here's what I'll be stitching up:
A kawaii bambi fabric with white and polkadot accents... into this. Craftyline is really awesome for pdf patterns. Just search "Blythe" and there are tons of stylish patterns in PDF. They are usually under $5.00 per pattern.
xoxoBlythe pattern adapted from vintage Skipper "All Spruced Up". I'm using a 70s faux patchwork fabric that I got in a grab-bag of vintage small print scraps. I have a ton of this fabric in doll-clothes terms, so I am using it as a test fabric to perfect this pattern. I might add a red or black bow at the end too.
That's my weekend next weekend... that and yoga. Yay!
