So, back in October I got a reproduction Nancy Famosa, who didn’t actually make it onto the blog for a while. In the meantime, I got obsessed with the 1970s, since that’s the era she was from, and also got Crissy’s cousin Velvet and did some sewing for her. There are a ton of half-finished things for Nancy, and also an interesting post started about Velvet’s clothes. I try to keep the blog relevant and interesting to the greatest number of people, although I also sometimes post things here just because I like them. For instance, Nancy is probably not super popular in the US, because she’s hard to find, but I adore her.
Some blog readers want to see something awesome, download the pattern and make it for that exact doll. Others say they are interested to see a variety of dolls here, even if they don’t have them and maybe let the photos inspire something they’d like to make for another doll. What do you think?
If you lengthen the sleeves and pair it with these pants, you can make a few more variations of her original outfits too! I was going to break this up into two posts, but decided instead to do both parts (skirt and blouse) this week and might skip posting next week. The skirt will also fit Girl for all Time, but the top is too small. The whole outfit also fits the Wellie Wishers but looks best with the hems of both top and skirt shortened a bit!
In case your dolls have nothing to wear for the holidays yet, I was on the Wrenfeathers flickr page and found some nice holiday dress ideas that are not just red and green:
This cute gingerbread Sasha outfit is by Mary Davis.
And this sparkling blue party dress is by Penny Tennerman
