A New BJD Clothing Style

Hello, dear ones in Internet~Land! Today’s post features as new SD (1/3 scale) size BJD Pattern Set in the Japanese Mori fashion style. I heard about this look, and wanted to check it out. When I saw what it was, I just fell in love! It reminds me of a “vintage, less fitted, softer, shabby~chic” version of the old Gunne Sax style we had when I was a young teen. MUCH more comfortable, though! Well, after looking over lots of inspirational pictures, I decided to draft up a pattern set for my Angell Studio Hua Rong BJD. Here are the results of my efforts. I’m posting this right away, because I hope you’ll be as excited to try it out as I am! I’ll be sure to post pictures when my set is complete. Wishing you all the best ~ Happy Sewing!

Enjoy the Moment

Hello, dear Internet~Land. Earlier this week while I was driving home from work, I rounded a corner, looked into the sky, and saw something in the clouds that was amazing. Now, often when I see something cool like this (like the cool noctilucent clouds I’ll show below), I grab my phone and snap a photo. On this particular day however, I thought, no ~ I just want to enjoy this. Directly above me, the clouds formed two gigantic humpback whales gently gliding across the lower sky. What was amazing is that they pretty much kept their shape until I was directly underneath them. It was so serene. Wide spreading fields on either side, a straight road with unusually little traffic, and the Coast Range in the distance ahead. It was beautiful. So I just enjoyed it. I just rested in the moment and allowed it to surround me. I hope you can find some time like that this week. I hope you will be able to enjoy a beautiful moment and let it envelope you for just a little while. In this busy life of non-stop comings and goings, I think I need to look for more times like this. It was so peaceful and quiet. My brain was able to pause for a bit. It’s like everything just slowed down for a few minutes. I hope you can find that peaceful moment for yourself this week.

Ellowyne & MSD Ready for Rain

Those common “May Showers” won’t dampen your dolly’s spirits with this cute little Raincoat Pattern! I’ve been thinking of this design for quite a while and finally got it all finished for you. I just love a clear raincoat, and decided it was time to get one together for our dear Ellowyne and her MSD size friends. Now you can download your free copy of the pattern and sew along with me as we put it together. Happy Spring and Happy Sewing!

Finishing the Yellow Coat Outfit

Greetings, all you fine folks in Internet~Land! I know it’s been a bit sparce on here as of late. Long hours at work and life events have had me a bit preoccupied, and my limited free time has been used for rest. But, hey ~ I got all my information to my tax guy BEFORE the deadline. That’s certain to count for some good points! I’ve also finished up the last pieces of the Ellowyne Ruffle Hem Coat Set. All in all, I guess it’s ok. Now I think I will try some grey faux leather boots to use with the granite-look high heel soles. I’ll be sure to keep you posted as to how they turn out. I’m also putting together a new raincoat pattern for Ellowyne/MSD size dolls. I know the 1/4 scale dolls have had a bit more attention, but I thought they needed it, since I have spent so much more time on the 1/3 scale sizes. It seemed like the smaller ones were a bit neglected. Hopefully our MSD friends are feeling more loved! Well, I guess I’ve been rambling long enough ~ so now for the video! (I’ll post the new raincoat pattern soon)
