party dress for dolly!


ok so please excuse the awful photo quality
try as i might i just cannot get a decent photograph of my Blythe :(


but
i have finally made her a dress!
i made a tri-colour tu-tu using this cut out and keep tutorial
http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/no_sew_tutu_2
obviously some what scaled down :D

i made the bodice section with a piece of vintage sequined trim
i'm pretty pleased with it, very simple
but at least she is now wearing something i made her
which was the whole point of buying a doll.

oh and i have decided on a name for my doll
i am going to call her Idris after the human woman
who the soul of the TARDIS is poured into
in the Neil Gaiman episode of Doctor Who
when i first got her i was going to call her TARDIS
because of her amazing blue hair
but it just didn't seem right.

perhaps my mojo is returning
:O
