Summer, Goodbye


Autumn is settling in with the slow rains, and I'm putting away some of my summer favorites to make room for the sweaters and corduroy jackets that are making their way out of the window seat in the girls' room. This is a skirt made from Girly Style Wardrobe, view D with two pockets, and a Waldorf-ish sack doll from a pattern in Kinder Dolls. My Truffle calls these her Zucchini Skirt and Zucchini Doll, which I just love. Lucky for me, the skirt ran big, so we'll have another summer or two to enjoy it. The doll won't be banished for the winter. She resides with the Second Tier of Important Toys on the foot of the Truffle's bed. First Tier Toys (currently Bear Bear, Chickie, Old Silkie, and Baby Asia) stay by her pillow.

Glad to see your blog up and going again Kara! The skirt and doll are beautiful! I just traced my first pattern (k) out of Girly Style Wardrobe today, can't wait to sew it.

What did you use for a shirt? That is so cute, especially with the skirt :D

Thank you. The blouse was purchased from Old Navy.

I've been thinking of making some of the 'Playmate' dolls from Magic Cabin (the patterns are around here somewhere) due to a crushing amount of 'hair colored' mohair in the stash. Thanks for the inspiration. Maybe tomorrow I'll dig out the dollmaking box and get started on some Christmas "babies". C

I finally got Girly Style Wardrobe :D

Do you know of any pattern books in Japanese that have patterns for boys? My oldest is pretty tall, and I can't seem to find very much. Thanks :)
