"Spring's Contessa", a fabric book cover for all the ladies who await spring. Love combining sewing and illustrations!
Realizing my projects involve monstrous amounts of detail and time (makes life interesting...but complicated. Ha!). The past week I've been sewing undergarments for my doll. It consisted of googling, laying about in yards of fabric thrown all over the place, and staring/willing the cut pieces to magically form together.
Here are a few resources that helped me get started in thinking about how I wanted to construct her clothes:
• Bloomers tutorial
• Hemming sheer fabric?
Bloomers. Can't get enough of this word. Made bloomers for the first time! It was very exciting for me...well, it lost its momentum when the first pair didn't fit over her bum. By the time I made a fresh cup of tea I was ready to try once more. Gave it a good glare for measure before starting (making sure to scare it into submission). Above, are the pair I made along with my *bee bustle*. Naming it so because of its appearance (fitting, eh?)
Hopefully in the next photos she will no longer be a baldy! My mohair has arrived.
