Green stuff

Just playing…

Waiting for another wig for Dots (my new KID). I am not sure if it will suit her – if not, I’ll let her keep another one and introduce her like that. And I am waiting for twins. Twins need twin dresses, and I’ve been busy sewing for them.

Sophia loved the green fabric, and she got a new dress too.

Since green seems to be the colour of the month, I made another one. Solovet was kind enough to change her appearance to model this one. I am not sure if I should add buttons or beads to the front panel. My sewing results tend to be rather plain and simple, and I like it like that, but looking at all the frilly stuff I sometimes wonder if they are too plain. There’s a point where I feel like burying the character and I usually undo it until it feels “right” again. Small golden beads, maybe.

Last but not least, Nimue and Leaf.

  1. I also love simplicity and restraint, which is why I always feel uncomfortable when I over-embellish a dress. Like you, I usually end up taking things apart until they feel right. Love your dress designs. As for Solovet's green dress, perhaps small dark green buttons? Or dark green beads if buttons are hard to find.

    I can't wait to see the twins.

  2. I'll see if I can find any. Funny, isn't it? I do like embellished dresses, but somehow even the embellishments are kind of simple. The twins will take some time, I guess.

  3. I love those dresses! They look great, and I agree with the matching for twins 😀
    I think that "plain" and "simple" is not a bad thing, it is a style, and I really like your sewing 😀
