I have a few jeans (including jeans for Misaki dolls), the second and final batch of Dungarees and Black Annabel Lee Baby Doll dresses that I am working on now. As well as a few special requests and I have a new design that I am working out in my head.
I got a little sidetracked with my excitement over the new style overalls and getting a prototype completed. I have jeans in varying stages of completion. I am going to work hard to get the overalls sewn and ready so I can distress them all at the same time (expecting completion this coming week).
I finally had a chance to take a few proper photos of the new overalls. I am really super excited about them. I decided I needed to do them different from the old style that was pretty much straight from the pattern book. I was playing around with ways to make them look a bit more realistic in scale and finally ended up creating my own buckle clasp with jewelry pliers and craft wire. This wire in the prototype is pretty delicate, I was able to find the same gauge wire at the hardware store but much sturdier. I do want these overalls to stand the test of time and if you are like me, you will be playing with taking them on and off over and over again. Yes, I am a little silly.
I will be donating something special to each of the following Blythe events around the world this year. Just added Blythecon UK!
I won’t have enough Melancholy Dearest Espresso Brown sets for all of the events, but will be contributing something equally special.
Pearly Dew Drops for Blythe doll. The second design in The Victorialand Collection.
These pieces will mix and match well with pieces from The Decadence Collection.
I think I saved the best for last. I’ve been dying to get these Silver Moon pieces made – FINALLY! Don’t miss out on the pieces in this versatile collection.
These corsets can be worn alone with skirts and petticoats or layered over blouses and many SqueakyMonkey classic dresses like the Melancholy Series. The Micro Petticoats and Micro Bloomers will fit many other dolls besides Blythe. The corsets are designed for Neo/Kenner Blythe bodies, I am interested in making this for Monster High, so feel free to ask! 😉
As far as scheduling, I will begin working on the Grey and Black pieces and Ivory Corsets and White pieces first as I have similar colors that I still need to finish from my last production. Once I finish all of those, I will begin on the Buttercup Yellow blouses, micro petticoats, bloomers and the Pink micro petticoats and bloomers.
Pictured here is Grey Tulip Corset with Grey Micro Petticoat, layered over Black Micro Petticoat and Black Micro Bloomers. The Black Decadence Ruff Blouse would look amazing with this combination too.
Pictured here is the Ivory Decadence Tulip Corset, with 2 layered Pink Micro Petticoats with Buttercup Yellow Micro Bloomers. The White Decadence Ruff Blouse or Buttercup Yellow Decadence Ruff Blouse would look lovely with this combination.
Pictured here is the Ivory Decadence Tulip Corset, layered over a Pink Tea Stained Melancholy Rose dress. This corset goes wonderfully with all of the Melancholy Dresses.
