The Little Boxy Jacket - made from a berry colored wool boucle

pics to follow

Cocktail Dress
fully lined dress with corset like bodice, wide, rounded shoulder straps and reversed tulip shaped skirt

 -the 'reverse' tulip skirt has 4 big pleats on the front that create the tulip shape
-the bodice has an unusual cut, that just calls for piping along the seams or lace inserts
-the wide shoulder straps are rounded to cover the shoulder-arm connection for a nice, aesthetic look

The Little BOXY Jacket, same jacket as above shown in a berry color, slightly asymetrical. If you use a big button to close it, it looks in the worn-open version like a brooch. The side gores, along the side seam and on the

VERSION 2 : grey wollen suiting, black lace insert in bodice front panel and a smaller, but longer skirt ( without pleats but with two darts) ..pics to follow

Sheath Dress
fully lined dress with a classic armscye princess seam silhouette but an unusual dart detail in the front panel
This dress looks like a perfect little business  dress. Classy with a twist.

The darts were moved to the middle and create an unsual arriv/chevron pattern.

 Again The Little BOXY Jacket was used.
I run out of time to make one in greyish tweed. But the berry color adds some color on a dull day.

VERSION 2 : blue dress with a v-neck and short sleeves.. pics to follow

Hope you enjoyed the first preview pics, MORE PICS TOMORROW!!
Looking forward hearing some comments,


pics are taken>>

tonight I'll look tru those tons of pics and edit them for your viewing pleasure;-)!
So by tomorrow the sewing pattern along with my prototype pictures will be up on this blog!
Stay tuned!!



the sewing patterns are finished>>

So today is picture taking time and turning the patterns into pdf.files!!

So glad that I finally finished the patterns, it took me much longer than expected. 
I wanted to make at least two final dresses of each pattern to show you the opportunities (as I offer variation possibiliteies for each pattern). 
With two little kids who brought us some seasonal respiratory infections from Germ Central, aka the daycare place, home, it was not that easy to sneak away for sewing. Since I was dealing with another infection from a few weeks ago the new germ kicked in and knocked me out.

The designs:
One of the dresses is quite casual - an unlined style, longsleeved with a wonderful neckline detail - to be made from stretchy fabric (jersey or fine knit fabric).
The second dress is a cocktail dress with a stylish bustier part and a 'tulip' shaped skirt part and the third dress a sheath dress with an unusual front. Dress two and three are a bit 'Mad Men' style, both require lining and a bit more sewing experience than dress one.
Oh, and I almost forgot to mention the little jacket...!!

Hope you are looking forward the pattern, I can hardly wait to show off the pics!
I will offer the pattern as well as the dresses on this blog, and even thought about opening an Etsy account - not sure if one can offer there something for sale right away or if it takes time to let them check identity of new users? Anybody knows?

Winterly greetings,
Jule in snowy Germany


outfits for JS male dolls and some pattern(FS) in the works

Hi folks,
no pics today, but some news!

I'm soo glad with my latest doll purchases!!
Tonner's Aragon and the Basic Alejandro (Jamieshow) moved in here just recently..and I'm totally in love with them. Especially with Alejandro!
Wow, he is such a good looking guy! He poses like a dream and it is such a fun designing for him.

In the past I never expected to become excited about a male doll, but being the mom of little boys changed my perspective.
Now I can see that male clothes can be cool and stylish too- and than men need more than just dark suits, blue shirts with ties, and some plain t-shirts plus blue jeans, nope..outfits for the males have not to be that boring like hubby closet contents!haha

Since I'm picky about the fit of clothes Alejandro does not simply wear Matts stuff, his arms are longer and smaller, his waist/hips are smaller too, he is more athletic than Matt .. therefore he got a whole new wardrobe. Now I'm just waiting for the Jamieshow stand to arrive (as much as I love the quality of the doll, I was  disappointed that he does come without stand - I didn't see that info anywhere, otherwise I would have ordered one right away with the doll, so it was almost $60just to get the stand from AngelicDreams shipped to Germany, well at least that opened the opportunity to get some more shoes for him- stuffed into the stand package).

As soon as the stand&shoes are here, it will be time for PICTURES of Alejandros new outfits!!!

When taling pictures the Cissy will demand their picture taking time too. Fashion that are the prototypes from my latest pattern.
On the MAcissy Yahoo list is right now a LittleBlack Dress contest, and since I was asked about my patterns in the past I decided to offer some patterns that could be used for LBD.
There will be 3 dress patterns as well as a cute little jacket pattern.
It takes me longer than I expected - right now I'm done with the muslin versions of the dresses, phew, one dress as well as the jacket are finished in the ' final fabric' version - two more two go and then I can show you pics and offer the pattern for sale.
working on the pleated skirt part of the dress..to let the pleats meet exactly the bodice seams

also some more length added and skirt part finished was finsihed as 'paper version'...in the upper right corner you can spy a little raw drawing of the dress

I expect the Cissy pattern FS to be ready with by Tuesday or Wednesday, stay tuned!!!!

Wishing you a wonderful Sunday,
Jule who is off now to use the time before the little one gets up from his nap to put on the Xmas decoration, First Sunday of Advent already!Time just flies!!!
