Good Saturday people!
I have just finished an outfit for Dawn and Pippa that I’m quite pleased with. I hope you all like it too :o)
I have named it “Cosmopolitan” because I can imagine the girls wearing this for cocktails on 5th Ave, or aperitifs on the Champs Elysees…. It is a little black silk form fitting sheath dress, fabby hat, and unique gold plated accessories, gloves and shoes.
I am in the process of prepping the listing and have just taken the photos. I will be listing this outfit on eBay, just for a change of pace :o)
Click HERE to be taken to my eBay myworld page, which will show the listing when it’s ready.
Here’s a pre listing preview…..
I put rather a lot of time into my doll clothes, I don’t know why, I just do. It’s a mania, lol! Here is a little bit of the making of the purse for this outfit. It surprising how complicated something so small and simple looking can be!
First I had to decide on the shape of the bag. I knew I wanted something sleek and polished looking.
Then the pattern plot…..
I changed how I wanted the linig to shape up, So I had to do another pattern.
After the fabric was cut out, I pressed the top hems and the black silk.
And here it is almost all done. It just needs straps and a closure. I find it more fun when the tiny things work as they should, so this purse opens :o)
And here it is finished with the other accessories from this outfit.
I love this gold plate chain. The links are circular. It’s lovely and a little unusual.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing a little of how I put the wee purse together and the finished outfit too :o)
Have a great weekend and thanks for reading
