I finally finished my first custom Blythe and am very happy with how she came out. Is she perfect? Not by a long shot, but I learned SO much through this process....and I quickly remembered how much I really enjoy dressmaking.
It gave me a chance to get re-aquainted with dressmaking, which as I mentioned above it's something that I really loved. Knitting such little hats and sweaters makes for instant gratification which makes it very enjoyable. I've told you before that in real life I am not a "bling" kind of girl, but secretly inside I think I really am because it always makes me smile so.
....and already I have new ideas of couture dancing through my head for the next girl...yes, you read that right....the next one. ;-)
I also managed to squeek out another hand made dress for Autumn. When I was a child, my grandmother used to make the most amazing dresses for my beloved Skipper doll and this hobby brings me right back to the time I spent with her . This makes me smile as I remember how special those times I had with her as a child were. She taught me how to knit all those years ago and I will always be greatful for that. Thanks Nana!
Because I know my fiber friends are not really doll people, I am going to start another blog dedicated to Blythe. It will be called,
"Down The Rabbit Hole of Blythe"
