It’s long overdue, and I’m finally getting to all the wonderful things that I’ve been planning for months! Sometimes, stuff just happens and it takes a while to get projects finished. Well, here are a few of the things I’ve been playing around with. I hope that you like them.
For my fellow Dianna Effner Little Darlings fans, I have a few new outfits to show you. Does everyone love the number 3 face mold? Well, I do. So much so that I had to get two so that I can have ‘twins’. And here they are, in the above photo, dressed in their winter coats and hats. Let me tell you a bit about the outfits. Boiled wool is not an easy fabric to find here in the States. I happened to find something very close to boiled wool in some really fun colors and I knew that lots of dolls were going to get coats out of that material. Boiled wool cuts clean, meaning it does not unravel. It has a nice lofty, wooly texture and is a dream to sew. This material, my faux boiled wool, is a bit thinner than the usual boiled wool and that makes it perfect for little doll clothes. Check out the coat sets and other things I’ve put together!
All of these will be sold in my Etsy shop, Matilda Pink, if you are interested. Each coat set comes with a removable faux fur collar, a cloche hat, a scarf, and a ear muffs. The double breasted coats are unlined, but made with great care and are very tidy on the inside. You can change the look of the coat, making your doll look more formal with the fur collar and hat, or more casual with the scarf and ear muffs.
Here is the red coat with the scarf and ear muffs.
And here is a new skirt and top set. Notice the beret that comes with this set? It just so happens to be the same wool as the red coat set, so you could use this with the coat set, if you happened to get them both. The black and white stripe top has a neat black collar and the corduroy skirt is trimmed with rows of tiny black ric rack. The red beret finishes the set nicely, I think.
My little model here is the Little Darling, sculpt number 2, from a UFDC event last summer. She’s so adorable!
Have to admit I’m really fond of this set. The knit top is actually something I’d like to wear myself. The brown velveteen collar matches the brown corduroy skirt and I’ll throw in a pair of beige ankle socks. I don’t include socks, tights, or shoes typically, so this is an exception.
I hope you like these! Please check out my little shop for more Little Darlings outfits. : )
