A couple years ago, I picked up a clothing set for Only Hearts Club dolls at a local craft store and wondered if it would fit any of the dolls in my inventory. I tried the clothes on a Momoko doll and they fit fairly well. The clothes are a bit snug and look like cropped attire from another decade, but they can make good mix and match pieces. My personal favorite are the Only Hearts Club shoes, which are pliable and easily slip on to Momoko feet. I'm also impressed with the detail on the shoes.
After a busy time at IFDC in Las Vegas this year, I brought home all my fun finds in the sales room and decided to mix and match my new Momoko. The Momoko is a reroot with pastel pink hair. She is wearing a dress intended for BJDs and is a little big, but looks really cute with the Momoko shoes and Azone white hat.
An online BJD store I frequent, The Junky Spot, had a photo contest recently and I decided to participate. The goal was to make something out of aluminum foil. I came up with a few ideas and had my Limhwa ladies model the foil fashions. Above is Limhwa Lily wearing a fitted dress. The belt is embossed with a hand-drawn motif to provide texture. Each section of the dress has a paper backing to keep structure and prevent crinkling of the foil.
The second photo is a much smaller doll, Limhwa Sara. She's one of my favorite BJDs in my collection. I pulled out all kinds of fashion doll accessories and went wild. The gems are hand applied. I especially like the Integrity Toys ring on her pinky.
Overall, I can't say I would work with foil again, but it was nice to think outside of the box when designing doll fashions.
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.
It has taken me a little white, but I'm finally getting back into pattern-making. I created the digital pattern pictured above, which includes a blouse and capris for 18-inch sized dolls. Some Frozen remnant fabric made its way into the design for American Girl style dolls. Find the pattern here.
