Dolly Update 2

Posted by Ainsley Cooper at 10:23 AM
Next up is Operetta. I got her  a few weeks back. I haven't done anything to her because I'm not sure what I want to do yet and I want to be sure since I'm horrible at doing eyes. I like her hair, but at the same time I kind of don't and a reroot practice would be good. So mostly this is just a post about the clothes I've made for her....

The awesome skirt I made for her. If I had the right figure I'd totally make one for myself. I haven't really made any shirts for her but I want to pair this with a long asymmetrical black tank.

Some badass leggings (scrap fabrics bin at Hobby Lobby is like a treasure box of awesomeness). They're not perfect because I had to leave some wiggle room for her ginormous calves since the fabric isn't super stretchy. She's wearing her skirt as a top.

 Skirt and dress (and headband) from the same old shirt.

 Knit skirt with leg warmers and some booty shorts that are a test run from the pattern I made.

Also, I was looking ALL OVER for some super thin velcro because I didn't want to buy something stupid like velcro online, but none of the stores around here have sew-on velcro that thin. Then I finally saw this stuff in Walmart the other day. It's supposed to be used for keeping electronic cables and such together but it sews onto fabric beautifully and is super thin and flexible. Six bucks for four pretty long rolls. I'm sure it will last me a while.
