With the way things look, it would seem like I have not been giving the shop
Totally not true, my loves!
Your Shasha had been working like crazy
but didn't get to let you know via even a single post because,
crazy busy, was because LOL!
Anywhooo, I have tracked my phone hoping
to remember what had happened between now and the last post.
On the week of July 6, I got tempted to get these girls.
|I love these new faces but I haven't scheduled a decent photoshoot for them yet..|
|The ankle-articulated gal can stand on her own! Awesome!|
|Of course, Portia grabs the articulated body for trial. I think she's liking it.|
|Kira arrived that week, too!|
You could imagine my dolly excitement that week.
On the second week, I worked on a romper that gave me a hard time.
I've never had this much challenge in a pattern ever but oh, well..
You need to level up your skills, right?..
|Portia on a bed of failed prototypes...|
I almost gave up on this romper after a week of trying.
But I learned a few things during those dark, sad atelier hours.
First, don't settle on your next available fabric.
Yes, the color may be perfect but in this case,
the fabric is just too soft and slippery. It frays so easily, too.
But I was still the hardheaded one that I am,
despite my husband telling me to move on to the next project,
and just work on it again with a much more appropriate material.
I dedicated the entire week developing the romper prototype,
and fortunately came up with a pattern that I have used the succeeding week.
Here is the final prototype, in a new fabric.
I tried it on several ladies willing to show their messy bedroom hair
to the public.
I think the prototype fits these girls okay:
|Kei on a Poppy Parker body|
|Barbie Fashionista Bree|
|Dynamite Girl Sunny|
|Bride of Dracula Tessa|
These two busty ladies, though may not be good models for this design.
But they were nice enough to try it on =)
As for this week, I had been developing something that is top secret for now.
Til then, loves!
