I got started on one of Dolores’ new outfits yesterday. Since we still have a little summer left to go, it had to be swimwear! As you can see, her bikini is done and ready for the beach. What you can’t see, because I didn’t take this picture until it was getting dark out, is… Continue reading Dolores – Beach Ready!
Dolores just got a package from Webs! I have definitely been slacking on getting some new outfits made for her. So we got a few kits delivered… Guess what I’m knitting next?
Dolores’ gansey is done! It turned out pretty well, and I learned some things that will help me in making my own gansey. Dolores is happy to have such a fashionable and warm item for any nautical jaunts she may be taking. 😉 So all in all, I’m very happy with this project!

Dolores’ new lounging ensemble, consisting of a luxurious caftan and daring turban with flower accessory, is ready! Just in time for holiday festivities 😉

How nice was that of her!), and it still needs to be blocked, but otherwise, it’s done. 🙂 So in addition to starting Dolores’ new outfit, I also got a… Continue reading Startitis
In spite of the fact that I have had two dress kits for her, poor Dolores has been languishing the same outfit since I finished her Rhinebeck dress and accessories in early September. Since I recently finished some things, I decided it was time to get back to clothing her in the style to which… Continue reading Sensuous Ewe
