Good Saturday doll folk!
It’s been a rather busy week for me, and most of it was ~not~ in the studio. Sigh, oh well. One can only do what one can do! I’ve also spent too much time arguing with my computer on the subject of uploading my website in an efficient and timely manner >( The computer often wins these tiny battles albeit temporarily, lol! I persevered and won out in the end and my website (awsumgal.com) looks as it should again!
But, enough of that! It’s time for dolls! I have been working on a cheeky little outfit for Sybarite dolls. I have a small piece of printed designer silk. I enjoy this fabric so much that I am very careful what I use it for! I know I can’t get more you see….
The Sybs are worthy of course, lol! In fact all my gals are worthy, but anyway… Today it’s the Sybarites who get a new outfit, lol!
So here are the shorts. They are made of the lovely silk I was talking about! I have given them working front pockets and they are topstitched and lined in silk charmeuse.
I added some side interest by putting in a single cargo pleat on the side seam that has a sewn on rhinestone decoration and below that a little custom grouping of five strands of necklace chain. The necklace chain strands are also sewn on inside the cargo pleat.
I like these little shorts. They’re stylin’ and sassy! :o)
Shorts this stylish needed a top full of attitude and verve! A bra top seemed to have just the right amount of sass! I chose a fabric for the cups that is a perfect match to the pale blush colour in the silk! Yum!
I thought I wanted to have something hanging below the cups. I hummed and hawed and went away and thought about it. I dug through my considerable stash of fabrics and trims looking for the perfect compliment. Sometimes, the right thing jumps out immediately, other times, not so much. This was one of those “other” times lol!
I thought about it some more and decided on HAIR! Now in all honesty I wasn’t completely sold on the hair idea, but I thought it had merit enough to try :o)
Here’s a look at that….
All right, so I experimented with the bra top. I thought about pink mesh sides, then nixed that idea. So I wefted a little bit of hair with the intent of attaching it to the cups. Frankly way too Tiki Hula girl for my tastes (although a really over the top Tiki theme might be great fun at some point in the future :o) but I’m off topic a little. So I’ll put these wefts away for another future project.
Away with the hair. Bring on the rhinestones!
Here’s where I wound up with this. I love it. I have a little more work to do on the straps, but it’s minor.Â So I spent the rest of the time I had today working on a special wig to go with this, but it’s not ready for viewing at this point!
OK, that’s all for today. Hopefully more tomorrow :o)
Have a great Saturday night everyone and thanks for reading!
