What's up at the atelier?

Hi guys! I know it's been a long time since I have posted!
And more importantly, it's been ages since I have shared what's up at the atelier.
So, here you go..

For the month of March, we have been working on the three-part article on how our dolly friends store, display and organize their doll collection, and other related items such as wardrobe, dioramas, among others. Here are the links; I thought it would be handy to have them all in one page:

I feel so blessed to have worked with more than 20 dolly friends to come up with this mini-series.
Imagine just how positive, generous and loving the doll community can be, yes?
If you haven't yet, please check out what our doll friends can offer, as the tips are invaluable.

I also made a few of the Diane Dress, a midi-length dress with a wrap front panel.
I was inspired by the wrap dress by Diane von Furstenberg.

Weeks later, I also released the Luna cardigan. I thought I needed to add a cardigan to my girls' wardrobe because this piece is such a chameleon - it can be dressed up or down, depending on the items you style it with.

Yes, the Luna cardigan was named after this lovely strawberry-blonde babe =)

As for the month of April, I will have a round-up by the end of the month.
A sneak peek, though, for the week ahead:

Another doll collecting topic to talk about : BUDGET

So, stay tuned guys as I we will find out how we can improve our collecting journey at its financial aspect. I needed this so badly, so I am ecstatic to read all that our contributors have shared about the subject. And I was just blown away by the generous tips they gave!

Okay, so buh-bye for now and I'll see you in the next post!

hugs and kisses from the Philippine islands,

  1. Looking forward to the doll budget series! :)
    My niece's name is Luna, so I'm slightly biased when it comes to that cardigan. <3 Beautiful work, as always.


    1. Hey, Cat! Thanks for stopping by, girl =) Tee hee, Luna is such a cute name!

    2. No problem! I really enjoy your blog and photos. <3

      We call her little moon as a nick name sometimes. :) When she was almost 2 she was looking up at the moon and tried to reach for it. She got frustrated and said, "I want to hold the moon. Why can't I hold the moon?" She is a funny lil' girl. Haha! ;)

    3. Awwww... now that is why she is called Luna! I really like it, it's mysterious =) And oh, I love super short names!

  2. Love that cardigan! You have such a great eye for picking fabrics for your clothing projects - it's a real talent!

    And after the organization series turned out so well, I'm looking forward to reading the budget articles. :)

    1. Awww, thanks so much, J... The fabrics dictate what I have to make out of them. I am their slave... LOL!

  3. Beautiful fashions as always! I absolutely love the wrap dress!!

    1. Thanks so much, Georgia Girl! That wrap dress is just wonderful.. I'm planning to make summer "leather" sandals to "dress it down" soon =)

  4. The clothes and the photos are gorgeous!

    1. Oh, Muff - thanks, dear... I'm so glad you love them!
