After 6 years my venerable PC got a major upgrade. Leocadie helped out, of course. Now we can celebrate the New Year in true nerd fashion – with an MMORPG marathon. Bonus:
Leo found a little package under the Christmas tree :3 Inside, a snuggly bunny and a cute new set of clothes from Volks. Here’s a quick review of the Exciting Summer Vacation Set:The pieces are well-made and could easily combined with other outfits. Fortunately the skirt, which is deep blue denim, is also lined in…
Neris gets a cute new outfit!I’ve been experimenting with lace-up pieces since it’s more fun than sewing snaps, and lacing allows for multiple bust sizes. Plus, it’s pretty darn cute :3Neris’s new eyes came from Dollfie World.
Time to test your sewing skills again!Here’s the pattern and instructions for making a dress like Mirielle’s. This fits nicely on Dollfie Dream II M-bust, but will need modification for larger bust sizes.
Mirielle models a new dress with some festive lights in back :)The new jacket is too poofy, seems that I need to start using interfacing for lined clothing.
I’m currently working on a pattern for Mirielle‘s jacket and blouse. Since she’s become more of a fantasy character, I changed up her color scheme a bit.
I had some free time this weekend to play around with the Strobist gel collection. Meg was the subject of my experimentations. Some very nice effects can be created, especially if you can manage multiple light sources. Light red: Cyan: Pale pink: Quarter Blue:
My next sewing project is a cute fantasy school uniform for Mirielle. The bustier skirt is fully lined and has LOTS of ruffles, quite happy to have found a solid ruffling technique.It needs another pass to make the bust more heart-shaped and to tidy up the back, but otherwise worked out quite smoothly.
