I love my Blythe dolls, but variety is the spice of life. I looked into buying my ladies some animalistic friends but WOW those Wonderfrogs, Hujoo dolls and similar are difficult to find in the UK and pricey! Ouch!! I’d rather put that money and effort towards my next dolly purchase.
A few years ago I modified some existing patterns into a Blythe raglan dress pattern. I used it a batch of times and then forgot about it. It’s been languishing in a pile of human sized patterns until rescued in a recent clear out.
This dress is unlined and features raglan sleeves and a cowl neckline. As with previous Blythe patterns it should fit both the standard factory body, a licca body and/or a flection pure neemo XS. Photographs below are shown on a flection pure neemo XS.
Mechanical, Art and Design. Three wonderful things rolled into one at the MAD museum.
The experience of being there on a hot August Saturday surrounded by tourists was quite similar to the feeling you might get staring at these animated gifs for longer than 10 seconds.
Visited Masson Mills Textile Museum in Derbyshire this morning. They have a museum with working machines that process fleece into threads and then into fabric. We had the place practically to ourselves. It had a wonderfully abandoned air to it. It was packed with machines, some with work left unfinished on them, others just standing
Finally I have learned to do a Blythe faceup.
This was my second attempt. The first ended up looking … kind of mehh… so I decided to take things much slower this time. Going slowly made a huge difference. Watching this youTube video by Gisele Bianchini was also very helpful. It helped that if anything went wrong with adding the colour I was able to sand it all off in a few seconds.
