A few posts ago I mentioned I was busy making clothes for my 1:12 doll stories. Then I read a reply by Zdollcloset using the words "fashion show!" Show?! I scurried around grabbing fabric Scarlet O'hara style in reverse and made some curtains.

The styrofoam was in my view. Quick get the wallpaper book out and see if you have anything to match the curtains and the animal print "carpet". Ahhhh just right. I glued it on the runway, next put palm tree candle holders in place and went to get the models.

Well, remember I made you promise not to laugh. Here is my fashion show with a few of the outfits I made.

Just imagine some loud techno music and off we go....

A lovely yellow and khaki outfit to wear shopping on a saturday afternoon

Our lady wears a cool purple and green cotton suit perfect for this heatwave.

This two piece suit is perfect for meetings at the office.


Without the jacket she is ready to go dancing!

I didn't make the blouse, but made then added the burgundy velvet pencil skirt for a professional look.

This is a genuine leather jacket I made some time ago. It goes well with the gold trimmed knit dress underneath. If you look closely you can see the gold button accent on the jacket.
Now she is ready to attend that semi-formal evening wedding after work!

I'm so sorry, he felt there should be male representation with all of the lovely ladies. He grabbed his vest before it was  finished! I think someone told him his bow legs were sexy or something.

And what fashion show would be complete without a bride?

Wait...hol'....somebody help the bride!!!!

And uh that concludes our fashion show!
(somebody untangle the bride please!)

Big and little beauties

Here are two of my girls. One "big" one "little."  I own over 70 male and female fashion size dolls and at this point over 40, 1:12 scale dolls. Right now I am making wardrobes for the 1:12 because modern clothing for them is either hard to find or expensive.
Most of you already know the 1:12 doll is approximately half the size of her friend at 5 1/2". You might notice that her dress is the same size as Barbie's top. LOL 
I plan to do the doll stories in 1:12 and I will tell you why once the show gets on the road.

Bet you didn't know that 1:12 scale dolls and 1:6 scale dolls got along so well!

The house was made by The Little Tikes Company

Does size really matter? No! All girls just want to have fun!
 Oh yea, I made those quicky outfits.

A Cool Pool

With the heat wave we are having in most parts of the country, I thought about this pool. I couldn't find any markings or manufacturer's name.
 I haven't decided if I will paint the interior or not. If you look closely you will see a drain. The drain actually works. I am going to try to figure out how to keep the water in. Does anyone recognize this? It will show up in a doll story or three. :-)

It seems a little to small for Barbie. Barbie would probably stretch about half-way. My girl and her friends could probably get a few good laps in. 

It has stickers on it. I don't know if they came with it or not. I will take these off.

What to wear?

I have been planning to write doll stories for several years. Now that I am ready, I realize my dolls dont have decent wardrobes. I could take the advice of a fellow blogger and make it X-rated. I also thought of a nudist theme.
Naw. Instead I have been sewing feverously and shopping for outfits for my little folks. Once I have a sufficient amount I will have them model their outfits. Hopefully, within the next day or two. Grab a good seat...and no laughing! LOL
