Melody's New Dress!

Hi Girls!
I finally finished Melody's dress this morning, so here are the pictures I promised.

For the bodice pattern, I used the One shoulder dress tutorial, but used a her circle skirt tutorial for the skirt instead, but made it slightly longer. 

I'm quite happy with how it turned out, but believe me, it was a total nightmare to sew! Being the Avocado-Green lining silk that it was, it kept slipping all over the machine. But I must say, the results we totally worth it!

Anyway, hope you liked it! It's Melody's new favourite, and she doesn't want to take it off!

Next projects are: A matching jacket for this dress, a smock-style winter play dress, a bubble dress and another pair of leggings. All coming soon, with tutorial/pattern/book links and photos!

Hi girls!
I'm really sorry that I haven't posted in so long!

I've been working on a new post for "My thoughts on AG's new releases". It's taking ages, because I don't have that much time, and AG just released a HUGE amount of new stuff! But that post will probably be up in the next week or so. Then I have a couple of photo-stories that I need to post, and tons of other stuff!

All crammed in with school, dance practice, sewing, planning, and Eighteen Inch Doll Academy. Oh, and I can't forget that writing contest book that has to be sent in by April 30!

So yeah, I've got an awful lot to do and so little time to do it in!

Anyways, I won't be permanently leaving this blog or anything, so don't stress! I just won't be able to post very often for a while, so don't have a panic attack if for some reason I don't post for a few weeks!

For your sake though, I promise I won't keep more than 5 weeks between posting. Ok?

I'd better go now, I really have to finish that new dress for Melody! And before you ask, yes, I will be posting photos once it is finished, and I'll even include a link to the pattern I used. Good deal? I know, I'm starting to ramble on like some kind of TV advertiser on the shopping channel.

Well, I'd better run now.

Have a wonderful day!
