Never mind the cold

It’s freezing here but bright and sunny, so I popped into the garden to take some photos of Princess before she goes on her way. I did feel guilty about Princess just being in a sleeveless dress, my fingers were frozen, but she didn’t complain!

When I make custom dolls you decide on the clothes and colours etc and here is what Princess’s mama chose for her. First a long sleeved pink dress

Pretty in pink

The pattern is by Suzy Sparkle and is the Megan dress, I reduced the number of pattern repeats to fit Princess. The wool is a sock yarn by Qing fibres, a proper bubblegum pink (actually it’s called Cherry Hill)!

Then there is her anorak in blue. This is the Azorean anorak and I couldn’t resist putting a delicate Liberty print cotton as a lining.

A custom order usually chooses two outfits from a list and an accessory like a hat, bag or bonnet. Princess’s mama didn’t pick one so I ran up a little dress for her instead. It’s made with the most beautiful Liberty print, with a lace hem and contrasting bodice.

This fabric fills me with joy!

And finally those pink Mary Janes that you saw in the last post, but here they are again

Pink shoes, oh my!
