WIP, Studio, and Some Doll Measurements

Sorry, nothing new to show you today, but I have a few doll measurements and studio shots.  And, I wanted to say hello!  It’s always nice to say hello to you.

I hope you are having a great weekend.  We are still in summer mode here.  It’s a great day to be outside.  As soon as I finish this post I am heading outside to help my husband paint the railing on our deck, so this will be quick.

Wendi , who reads my blog, recently adopted an adorable 10″ Boneka sculpted by Dianna Effner.  It isn’t the easiest to find clothing for these girls, so she was wondering if Bethany (Helen Kish 12″) or Millie (Kaye Wiggs 11″ BJD) would fit them.  I wish I had one of these 10″ dolls, but I don’t, so I took a couple of side-by-side shots of the two I do have and took a few measurements.    I hope this helps you, Wendi, . . . and anyone else wondering the same thing.

Arms outstretched to the sides, measurement from wrist, slightly over shoulders, to other wrist:

Bethany, 8-1/8″ to 8-1/4″        Millie, 7-3/8″ to 7-1/2″

Circumference of upper arm:

Bethany, 2″        Millie, 1-1/2″

Circumference of hand (for sleeves to pass over):

Bethany, 2-3/8″        Millie, 2″

Chest:

Bethany, 5-3/8″        Millie, 4-5/8″

Top of shoulder to knee joint:

Bethany, 6-1/4″        Millie, 5-3/4″

Neck:

Bethany, 2-1/2″        Millie, 2-1/8″

I lined up their shoulders in the shot below.  You can easily see the differences in their torso lengths and widths.

If there’s another measurement that would help, please let me knot, I’d be happy to help.

I’m working on an ensemble for the Little Darlings.  Gina grabbed this one before Lucy and Alice could see I was even working on something for them.  I am currently knitting a hat with those cute little ear flaps to go with this ensemble.  I think a scarf or two would be cute also.

Last week the tinies got into the Halloween costume box.  Look what they found!  I crocheted these costumes for Kelly 10+ years ago!  Sugar (Fairyland’s Pukipuki) discovered they fit her perfectly.  She decided to dress up as a garden fairy (for now).  Poor Amelia Thimble is too small, but is begging for a costume of her own.  Maybe, Amelia, we’ll see!

That’s all for today.  Thanks for stopping by!  I love it that you did! ❤

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!  We’re waking up to a wet and dark Halloween.  Hopefully it will improve; they say it it will.

Last year trick or treating was during a rainstorm and the temperature was in the 30s (brrr) and very, very few children came around, maybe three.  Really, who could blame them, wet AND cold!  My husband had lots and lots of candy bars to munch on until Christmas;   I’m sure he didn’t mind.

In honor of Halloween I have collected past photos of my girls dressed for the occasion.

Hope you have crisp, fall weather for the trick-or-treaters!  Enjoy the day!  Bye for now.
