Many of the pages in the adult coloring book, Dolly Coloring Studio, are inspired by a variety of different dolls. Occasionally, the dolls in the book get to wear clothing that appears in Vogue magazine! The Dolly Coloring Studio page highlighted in this post is inspired by vintage Barbie and a few pieces found in the September 2010 issue of Vogue. The doll is wearing a dress inspired by Dagmar with clips and a brooch by House of Lavande (pictured below, bottom right corner).
Next week I will be attending the Pacific Northwest BJD Expo (aka PNW Expo) and I'm bringing this lovely outfit with me. It's a pink dress for MSD ball-jointed dolls. It also fits Ellowyne Wilde and a variety of other dolls. I love the sparkle and beading! Only one extra was made and will be sold at the PNW Expo. If unsold, it will pop up on Etsy soon.
Perhaps it is too much pink, but I just couldn't help adding all the pink pieces to the doll. Pictured is Peak's Woods Lady Bee (older body).
In Dolly Bureau (vol 3), I made a few patterns for tiny dolls, one of which is a design for PukiPuki. Pictured below is the final result of the pattern, which has easy-to-follow written and illustrated instructions in the book. Best of all, the clothing should fit other dolls like Mattel Kelly and Ruby Red Galleria's Honee-B.
The most recent installment of Dolly Bureau volume 3 focuses on tiny dolls, but some of the crafts and sewing patterns can be used for dolls of multiple sizes. The picture below is a drafting dress pattern that would use a combination of knitted and tulle/lace fabrics. Dream High Studio's Lulu is pictured. She's so tiny!
This new pattern combines a whole lot of things I love -- white eyelet fabric, lace, long dresses, ribbon, and my new KoonieS. As some of you may know, I have a few Peak's Woods dolls, but I was glad to add KoonieS to the family.
The dress pictured is a pattern available in my Etsy shop. I am trying to put out quite a few more digital patterns in the near future, so stay tuned for plenty more dolly sewing options in the weeks to come.
