[Doll] Dawn of Spring

It's been way too long since I last sewed for my dolls. In fact, the last outfit was completed in February. FEBRUARY!!!

In a fit of guilt, I made this for Laeticia and hand-stitched some silk embroidery. Someday, she'll have a full collar of silk roses, glass beads and French knots. Someday.

Thanks! It's been too long since I sat in front of the sewing machine to make something for the kiddies.

She's so cute. Adorable cream dress with the pin tucks and lace!
Oh gosh, embroidery! I've yet to sew a complete rose. . . . . ._.
Can't wait for the full embroidered collar. 8D

And to think that fabric was from an old pillowcase that I was going to throw away. Recycle!

Silk embroidery is soooo much easier than regular embroidery, which I totally suck at.

Have you sold your Shiny Fairy?

Omgosh, old pillowcase?! XD So resourceful! You keep your items very well. x_x
I keep dilly dallying over the fabric I should use to do ribbon embroidery on. :x So I guess it's going to take eons before I try again.

Yes, I've sold her. :/ Didn't like her legs and once again, preferred sewing for the msd/sd sizes more. Sigh, but yo's are so freaking cute... I guess I'll have to just be contented with looking at pictures of them on the net.

More like I ran out of plain white/cream cotton and I'm too lazy to hit Spotlight. XD

Stick with plain cotton fabrics. And use an embroidery hoop. I cannot stress that part enough, having tried to do the ribbon embroidery without the fabric stretched out.

Is her legs quite different from the Volks YoSDs?

A new dress for Lala. Pip will be jealous! It looks adorable and the little bit of ribbon embroidery finishes it beautifully. I respect your recycling awesomeness.
