This week's challenge was a rather odd one. But I guess that's what happens when Heidi is looking for free designs for her own fashion line:
"Ok, we don’t want you to have go buy a baby doll for this one challenge and we’ve already done a busy mom type look. So, if you have a baby doll you can design a baby outfit for it. If you don’t have a baby doll, you can design a high-end maternity look for your regular model (yes, give your model a baby bump)." Courtesy of Just Crafty Enough
I admit - I did not have time to do this challenge. I have been so busy sewing and sewing and sewing for fall shows that are coming up quick, that I haven't been able to focus onmuch else. And I still have to get to Halloween Costume sewing -ACK!
Thankfully - last week, I had a very discerning mommy client in my studio demanding a dress be made for her baby doll. You got it. Lane was my picky client. :D
Here's what I came up with according to her specifications:
It had to be made out of Dora the Explorer fabric. And it had to be blue. It also had to be easy enough for multiple wardrobe changes. Remember, a three year old needs to be able to pull it on and off in a hurry when baby doll is fussy and wiggly heehe.
So it closes with Velcro and the skirt is simple elastic. Not exactly high fashion, but it'll do.
I think she loves it. Even though I was busy doing prep for shows, who can say no to that face? I just had to quickly design and sew something cute for this sweet little mommy.
