Couture Doll Challenge

Challenge #1 Mrs. Austin Powers Inaugural Gown
Challenge #2 Off to the Races, a day at the Ascot.
This challenge is lots of fun and is truely testing my sewing skills to the limit. To see more about this challenge got to www.couturedoll.com There are 8 challenges in all and I just turned in #3.
I have designed cloth dolls for many years and still do occasionaly. But mainly my interest have been in the fashion doll zone and some vintage MA dolls. I have been sewing since I was 7 at the knee of my Auntie. She help form my love of sewing and still love it today. My dream is to design an outfit for a commercial doll for one of the big companies like Madame Alexander, Robert Tonner or Horsman. So I am working very hard now on that dream.
Check back when new items are due up.

You have done really well with the Couture challenge. I love to sew doll outfits also. I remember how thrilled I was when one of the outfits I designed was on a doll sold on QVC! I am now following your blog so I will always have the address!
