Hanami – New Dresses for the Cherry Blossom Dolls

11 May

Its that Cherry Blossom party time of year again. I think I mentioned that I had gone to Wales with the intention of doing some sewing, and what I ended up making (as well as making some outfits for the resident dolls) were new outfits for my Cherry Blossom Sindy and my made-over Sindy clone with the Cherry Blossom Tattoo. Not a minute too soon – we got home and the Cherry Tree in the garden was in glorious full bloom.

I think the outfits turned out OK, and although it was a little bit stressful on my poorly hands I think I can probably get back to sewing now and again, as long as I don’t overdo it. I bought a fat quarter of this material from eBay, I wasn’t sure if the pattern was too big for doll’s dresses but I actually quite like the size of it, especially the circles which add a bit of curviness to the very straight, tight dress worn by Cherry Blossom.

    The outfits are not just OK, excuse me, They are “Haute Couture”! They really are pretty, pretty damn gorgeous! The pics are so professionally done too-I love it!

        The outfits do look great and no, I don’t think the pattern is too big for dolls. It works perfectly for these outfits. Great job.
