In a recent post, I showed Little Fee Ante Elf in a fairy-print dress that was decidedly big for her. She was happy enough to wear it, despite its size, because she loved the fairies. I was still debating what to do about it when I came across a new pattern from Adams-Harris called Ridinghood LittleFee. Aha! A basic little girl's dress with bonus features of a pinafore apron and a cloak. I should be able to get a variety of outfits out of this one.
There was one catch. Ante insisted on having the fairy print, even though I didn't have enough of the fabric left for a whole new dress. We compromised. I had a sweet little strip of pastel stripe fabric, along with the remnant of the fairy print. I combined them. The fairy print shows up as the hemband of the skirt and the sleeve cuffs. Then, because the print didn't show up as prominently as Ante would have liked, I cut out one of the fairies and appliqued it to the front bodice of the dress.
A Wig for Dharma
This week I received a gorgeous curly blonde Dollmore wig that I won on e-bay. It was supposed to be a size 7-8, but the seller said it didn't fit her IpleHouse JID girl, who wears a 7-8. I bid on it anyway, figuring that with dolls of several different sizes, it was bound to fit somebody. Out of curiosity, I tried it on my IpleHouse Tania. The seller was right -- it was much too small for her. I tried it on two of my Soulkids -- too small again. Undaunted, I tried it on U-noa Lusis. Somewhat big there. It might possibly fit with a wig cap, but I didn't have one handy at the time. I tried it on Supia Yan. Same thing. Maybe with a wig cap. Why can I never find a wig cap of the right size when I need one?
