Titanic tea dress for dolls!

It took forever to finish but I've completed four of a kind Titanic tea dresses for dolls.

The dresses are made from bridal satin and lace.  I used satin ribbon for the sash and a large ribbon rosette.

There are also faux pearl beads on the lace top.  I've done my best to sew them securely but it's not a dress for children who still pull things off and put them in their mouths.

The dress will fit 18 inch soft bodied dolls such as American Girl, Gotz, My Twinn, Springfield, and probably some I'm not remembering right now.


I've also ordered a doll that needs some TLC to become a boy doll.  I ordered a wig so I can exchange one for the other and there we go!  I might sell the original AG doll wig on eBay.

Until next time:  Old timey songs can be addictive.

New nurse's uniform

I've just completed my first commission for a WWII gray lady's nurse uniform!

I'm happy with how it turned out and really like it.

Until next time:  hearing 1860's music sung by modern bands is rather addictive.  They did have some...interesting songs.  Let's just say great-great-great grandpa wasn't that different after all!
