I've come close to making pants before, but the pattern sucked and I got frustrated.
Today, I made a high waist pair of jeans!
Yay

Much much shorter than my normal....

a purple version of this dress!
I have a plan to make a lightly shorter version for a tunic top, with a pair of matching pants :)
we'll see how that goes.

Doll with train!

I decided to start buying a type of train that almost noone in the US likes.
Why?
Two reasons:
1. It's tiny and cute.
2. I'm an idiot.

it's almost the right scale for a doll!


The entire train set fits in a teeny tiny case!

The obi

is done!

Now I just have to wash, dry, and iron the outfit!


First piece of

doll clothing I'm actually going to put up for sale!
I still need to make the obi, but that's because I haven't totally decided on the knot yet..

The election

Normally I shy away from political stuff here on my blog.
But...

The election, for me comes down to a single question:
"Do you think all US citizens should have the same rights?"

It's a yes or no proposition.

If yes, then your only choice is to vote for Obama.

If no, then you can go wallow in your own bigotry and long for the 'good old days!'

I may offend some people by posting this.

Well, guess what?
Telling me that my family members and friends don't deserve the same rights as you do, because some religious whackjob tells you that an invisible man in the sky doesn't approve is also pretty damn offensive.



I don't make doll clothing

I make clothing that fits dolls.
It's a subtle difference, but an important one.

I don't take the easy way out. I use the same principles I use to make my own outfits, to make the doll outfits!
There are a lot of crappy items out there, that aren't made to last. I refuse to add to that pile.

SO, her obi/belt is going to have a few
shuriken and daggers on it.
Once the shipments start arriving!

more

work done.
the ninja doll outfit is close to done, but there are a few things left to do!
it needs it's own obi, and for that I have to wait....
you'll understand when it's done.


As part of our collab

type thingy, I decided to start offering custom outfits for dolls, by commission.

She does a terrific job with the repainting, but she's never been able to offer this service, for people who have a complete look in mind for their doll.

It should be fun to see what kind of responses this generates!

Monster High Doll Commissions!

further and further

The under kimono is pretty much done. I'm going to put it through the washer and drier to wear it out a bit...


starting the next

doll project!
This one is going to go up for auction most likely..
This is the beginning of the under kimono for that ninja themed doll.

This outfit is moving over to a different machine, there's a 1030 that I am getting ready to sell, and she's going to make this outfit!

My doll cohort

is running a give away thingy:
Doll Giveaway!

New ideas!

So, the kimono is 99.9% done.
And I started thinking about the kinds of things I want to make .

So I did the research and I found a company in Japan that makes metal bladed miniature weapons.


This is a Nepalese Kora. It's a type of sword.
the blade is cast steel, the sheath is leather, and the rack is wood.
this fits with the kind of quality I want to produce!

mostly finished!

I am thinking of changing the outer fabric on the corset/obi to a sakura pattern in black and white...


pleather kimono!!!
I think this is going to be awesome for fall
