A new addition to the family

December 14, 2011

Her name is Gertrude. Gerty, for short.

Picked this baby up on KSL over the weekend. (Actually, my friend did. Yep, the same friend.) She’s sample size, which is pretty perfect for fitting dresses. One day I’ll buy myself an adjustable dress doll. But until I fall in to some money, I’m very content with Gerty.

I’ve also sketched a bit more. I’m already happier with these results than my first try. I can see a few ideas in this batch that, with some tweaking and adjusting, could possibly make good dresses.

I’m also currently in love with Rachel Roy’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection. The colors, the simplicity, the silhouettes. She always manages to be chic and classy with just the right touch of cool.

    How fun! I wish I had the talent of designing my own patterns and making clothes from those patterns.

    My nail polish colour would probably have to be a nude colour by essie, either mademoiselle or ballet slippers. they are pretty classic. For wild colours i like this awesome orange-yellow colour called ‘the it colour’ by OPI

      Ooh, I’ve been looking for a good nude color. I’ll have to check those out!
