Yesterday, finally, the weather pattern broke and a cold front moved through. Ah, relief at last! This morning I gathered my ideas and my fabric for a quick sew. Not the pants I had cut out for Boris. That fabric is a dark knit and I felt hot just looking at it, despite the drop in the temperature. For a while I contemplated creating a bikini for one of my MiniFees. After some reflection I decided I would make a sundress instead.
I trimmed the bottom of the skirt with black lace and a row of pale lavender trim for contrast. Then, because her decolletage was so revealing, I added a pale lavender bow. Alas, it doesn't really fill up the space, but rather draws the eye toward the very feature I was trying to minimize. Oops! Oh well, Sidonie has the figure to rock this look. If she likes it, I'm happy.
The Plaisirs d'Ete pattern includes a bolero which I might make to finish off the outfit. Ellowyne Wilde has smaller hands than most bjds, so when using her patterns it is often necessary to compensate for narrow sleeve openings. Active-line MiniFee hands are attached by magnets, however, so I can remove the hands to put on the garment. Looking at the pattern pieces and the photos on the pattern cover, I'm pretty sure the bolero will fit Sidonie without alteration.
Sidonie's wig has a label inside that says Soom, which surprised me because I had stored it in a bag with a tag that said Luts. I wonder where the Luts wig is?
