I finally finished my commission last week. It came out even better than the original outfit I made.






The pants, as the girl's doll has hooves so I made it a drawstring pair. My first drawstring pants!


I did a hook and eye for the sleeves, unlike the original that was made with a snap. I like the look of this better.


I commissioned some clothing tags to sew into the clothes.


A closeup of the tag.


Here's the full outfit, plus the necklace I made to go with it.

I'm so pleased with how this came out! Now if I can just get the girl to get back to me as to whether she liked it and pay me so I can send it to her.

That commission looks really cool! I hope that the buyer likes it. :3

I made two more tiny wigs.



The one on the left is for my Vili (Soom PMD Iv/Skoll boy) and the right one is for JinMay's Waverly (Soom PMD Alk/Iv boy).
Making these wigs is so much fun. Jumpy

Awesome wigs! I love the little splashes of color in each of them. You make such cute wigs.

The girl just got the commission outfit in and she loves it! I'm so glad, although I was getting worried whether it had gotten there yet or not, since I hadn't heard from her yet. She was in Germany, and it can take a few weeks on regular mail.

I'm now making another commission outfit, a little different. I'll have to post pictures when I have more completed.

Thanks EilonwyG. :3
I'm glad she likes it so much! Can't wait to see the next one. Content


Oh! JinMay, I took a look at what we talked about, and there does seem to be a smaller about of brown from the rest. :\ I'll have to take out some of the camel in order to add the brown, but I'm afraid that there will then me not as much camel. 3: I may just remake the whole thing, and just use less white or something... I don't know yet. I'll talk to you about it when you get online. xD

I finished a new commission piece! It was made for a Dollzone boy but modeled on my kid delf elf maska. (I hope I make it well enough for the dollzone body.)

I just finished a new outfit for my mnf - Jurianna's coming with me next week to Colonial Williamsburg, so I thought I'd make her an appropriate costume.





I even made it somewhat reversible to give it a somewhat different look.



I'm mostly happy with this. It's not made as form fitting as I would have liked - it's something I need to work on as I'm not very good at it. The sleeve flounces don't flair as much as I would have liked, but that has more to do with the material than my abilities.

I also made an underskirt. I'll have to take pictures of that some other time.

Some stuff I've been working on.

First is a medieval kirtle for Jurianna. It's one of the most simplistic medieval styles, and my plan has been to make several in multiple colors (and for different sized dolls) and then making various overgowns to go with them for plenty of variety and styles. So far all I have is this:



It's still a WIP. There will be sleeves and lacings done up the back. It's unfortunately a project that has been on hold for several months.

Next up are a pair of boxers for Tam. I wanted some bed clothes for him, but I'm not really sure if they look like boxers. I think I could have done better.





The next outfit is technically a work in progress. The finished outfit is supposed to have a vest and a stripped long tailed jacket that's supposed to match the stripped skirt. It was made for my friend's Volks girl, problem is, it was taking me too long a time for her, plus I was having trouble with the vest and I don't seem to have quite enough material for the jacket of the same material as the skirt. And I can't seem to find it anywhere. So I'm not sure when I'll be able to finish this outfit.



I was only allowed to hold on to the body, so that's why there's no head on it.



I probably should have made some kind of clasp on the back of the main dress, instead of having it be a pullover dress, partially so the fit around the arm on the side didn't look so baggy and bulging. She's very hippy, so I had to make it wider than I would have liked in order for it to work over her body.



Showing how the skirts work with each other. There are two underskirts, one mostly lace with a small yoke.



Here you can see how the skirts flair out nicely when sitting.

I then made another of the easy infinity dresses for Eilonwy, my Soony.



My most recent project has been making a medieval cotehardie for my Delf girl. My Soony, Eilonwy, had been originally modeled after one of the main characters from the Prydain Chronicles, Eilonwy of the red-gold hair. On the cover of the first book in the series is Eilonwy wearing a really pretty dress. I thought it would be fun to make my Eilonwy the dress.

This is the dress from the cover:



After reading articles about medieval clothing, I decided I wanted to make Eilonwy a shift under her gown, as would have been done in medieval times.





My only criticism on my work is that I think I should have made the piece for the back a little more narrow. It's a little big across her shoulders.

Over this will be the cotehardie, the type of medieval gown that the picture of Eilonwy on the cover seems to be wearing.

It's still a WIP, as I haven't finished the buttons on the front or sleeves yet, but I've pretty much done everything else.

This is what I have so far:



(The background is the material I intend to use as the gown for my incoming F60 girl's dress.)





Here you can see the close up detail of the collar. I unwound a piece of trim to use as the piping at the edge of the lace so I had something thin enough for her size.

Here it is again on the sleeves:



And the zigzag stitch on the bottom of the skirt.



I have some silver brads painted to look like pearl buttons that I'll be using. I just need to get on actually doing it.
