~Pretty Prom!~ Outfit for Dawn and Pippa :o)

Another rainy, gloomy looking day! Will my outdoor concert be cancelled I wonder?

Gloomy days call for more fashions, lol! What better to brighten a day ๐Ÿ™‚

This sweet little frock I’ve called Pretty Prom. It’s a young looking outfit and it’s that time of year around here….

It is a strapless minidress with a metallic silver brocade lined bodice and a crisp white gathered skirt in a lovely firm nylon that has just a hint of sheen to it. It has seamless, sterling silver pearl type beads and silver hand knotted thread loops for fastening and it is accented with sparkly rhinestones around the waistline. She has a pair of black and white wedge heels with rhinestone straps and a rhinestone accented white flower on a stretchy band that she can wear in her hair, around her neck or on her wrist.

Here are some photos….






I will be listing this little fashion on eBay later today, I hope you’ll check it out! If you missed ~Gilded Girl!~ on eBay yesterday, it is now available in my Artfire shop. Get it before it’s gone!

Also, if we’re friends on FB I’ve got an exclusive running over there ๐Ÿ˜‰

~Gilded Girl!~ in my Artfire shop

Hope your Saturday is warmer and less rainy then mine seems to be!

Thanks for reading – now go and hug someone you love ๐Ÿ™‚

Ocean Inspired Gown “The Deep” for Pippa Wip 4

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

This fashion is coming together really nicely now. First, here are the fruits of my labours with the dye pots…

Well let’s get this party started!

It’s taking shape and I like where it’s going. It needs more work of course….. like beads ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Here’s how the back is coming along ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Ooooh! I love this is. It looks wavelike and swirly watery! Here’s the front so far…

It’s a big skirt, but I like it like that!

I’ve added little silk bead centered rosettes in different colours, blue pearl beads and a random assortment of other pretty beads too. I’ll be adding still more to the skirt. More silk/cotton, more beading and silk fibres too!

Until next time, have a great day!

Time for a New Project :o) Dolce & Gabbana for Pippa

It’s a new week and that means it’s time for a new project, lol! This is a commission of an adorable little Dolce & Gabbana psychedelic mini dress! Yum!

This is going to be worn by the smaller fashion ladies, Pippa and the girls, so it’s quite small really ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Here is what the dress looks like on a human…

So, a couple of things…. first off, I wasn’t sure I could remake this for the small set because of the fabric. I mean the dress has great lines, but it’s pretty dependent on the fabric to achieve the look.Then, as luck would have it I was in my local fabric shop (where you can often find me, lol!) and I found this….

It’s not exact, but it’s quite close and when backed with white, it will be a little brighter!

Here’s a look at the back of the real dress.

More double darting and Iร‚ย  like the way the straps are oriented in line with the trajectory of the darting. A nice detail! Ah the joy of darts! Of I go to get started ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Thanks for reading!

~Scarlet Silk Siren~ Red Silk for Dawn and Pippa

Happy Saturday folks!

I’ve been working this past week on a red silk ensemble for Topper Dawn and Palitoy Pippa that has both impact and subtlety. The deep red silk is a definite eye catcher, and the topstitching and beading add subtlety. I took a couple of in process shots, but as sometimes happens to me I get quite caught up in what I’m doing and flat out forget to take any! Anyway here is one of the bodice just before final finishing…

And here are a couple of the trumpet skirt hem getting the tiny beads sewn to the hem. This took quiteร‚ย  some time as the beads are really small and the hemline sweep is fairly long!

After all that beading, I went ahead and made some real leather high heeled evening sandals. I have some lovely gold leather so that what I used for the soles and the footbeds. I added some sewn on tiny beads for the heels and gave them stretchy beaded straps. Lastly I’ve made a little purse for her to carry. It’s a red silk filled filigree metal one with a gold chain handle that has had some red thread woven through the links.

After all is said and done, here is the finished project. It’s up on ebay for a one week run. Click HERE to visit the auction.

Here’s a closer look at the shoes, purse and bodice ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

On to my next project which is a little gift for a dear lady ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!

Mod Wedding Mini for Dawn – Finishing Up!

Weeelllll, it took a couple of days, but I think the tiny shoes are done! t only took me three tries, lol!

The first try might work in another fashion application, but the toe shape is wrong for winklepickers. Sheesh, don’t ask me what I was thinking :o/

I’ll stash them until I get some inspiration for them. But they’re not for the bride!

Second try, better shape but just too much of it! I call these the clown shoes. lol! They’re hilariously enormous :o) Not gonna work for this stylish bride….

Time for a new approach and a new template :o)

Ok, with the new sketch here we go with a much more subtle and demure pair. These are the winners :o) Sometimes you have to start again with a different plan of attack. They’re looking alright at this point….

After much miniscule gluing and stitching, here they be! They’re almost finished :o)

Here are all three pairs, so that you can see the true clownishness of that second pair. lol! Maybe I’ll put some big goofy polka dots on them and really make them clown shoes :o)

I did a little more work on them and added a trio of tiny white pearly beads on the back of the heel. Next time I’ll post the finished studio pics of this girl!

Thanks for reading about my tiny shoe misadventures, lol!
