For the Fun of It

The fabric that I used to make Talyssa’s new dress is pure fun and sunshine.  Even the fabric has a fun name—Posy Swirl.  When I saw it, I knew immediately that I wanted to use it to create an ensemble for one of my girls (dolls).  I had my youthful and sweet Talyssa in mind right from the start.  When I showed her the fabric, she did indeed love it too.

      Talyssa poses so well and can stand nicely on her own. Kaye Wiggs did a fantastic job sculpting her BJDs. Thanks, Marina, for your comments.

    HI Cindy,
    You’ve created another winner for Talyssa again! It is so cute…it’s no wonder you bought this fabric. It’s very very pretty and I love how you paired it with the green. Most people would have probably complimented it with one of pinks or raspberry colors for the sweater, but I love the bold pop of the green for it and I like the tiny pink ball buttons it closes with. The little spray of embroidered flowers is just perfect on the bodice of it. I think it is so little girlish… very sweet. All the extra details make this a home run…the hair flowers, her jewelry, her socks! Very well done Cindy!
    Blessings, Jeanne

      Hi Jeanne. Thank you for your much appreciated and sweet comments! I found out that this ensemble will be worn by a dark skinned Talyssa who I think will be the perfect model for these bright colors.
      Hope you’re enjoying the weekend, Jeanne!
