The time leading up to Christmas 2010 had me very busy with a selection of custom orders. The next few posts will document these.
First up, a clothes order for a customer that purchased 3 Dolls from me in 2009 and wished for extra sets of outfits. There where some additional outfits in addition to the once here that I didn't document.
Please forgive me for the less than stellar quality of the photographs here. I had my camera stolen and had to resort back to my old Canon Powershot, a great camera for outdoor pictures, but just terrible for indoor shots.. please bear with me.. all my creations this year will be photographed with my lovely Nikon D3100 DSLR.
Hand-knitted hats, a boys outfit, skirts, dresses, blouses, cardigans for 1 boy doll 45cm, 1 girl doll 45cm and one smaller 31 cm girl doll.
Detail of boy's outfit, linen shirt, pocketed trousers and felted vest.
Very traditional dress for 45 – 52 cm doll with linen facing at the hem and linen belted waist.
Same dress from behind.
Drop-waist dress with linen trim and felted wool cardigan with ruffled edge and crochet neck band.
A large portion of the fabrics are from up-cycled clothing, others are from my vast stash of cloth. The client came to my house to choose fabrics she liked and I created to clothes around them.
All seams are sewn with french seams for a beautiful finish and durability. The felted items are sewn with a zig-zag stitch to allow for stretch when the dolls are being dressed by little hands.
