An Early Thank You Gift for Adele

I have been so happy with Adele's performance as wedding planner that I wanted to give her an early gift.  As you know she is a teacher and in the midst of all the wedding planning, she did land a teaching job that will start in June.  It's still up in the air which grade she will teach.  So I decided to make her a dress for her work wardrobe.  The lighting is kind of crazy, but I took these right after I shot the church photostory.  I think Jolisa wore me out, too. 

It is a pretty turquoise and white sheath type dress with some added interest on the front skirt.  She will be toting the white handbag from the Barbie Basics 3.0 accessory pack.  (If you look through the church door window, you can see Ian there.  He found his way back to his ushering post.)

Hard to see the beauty in the dress with all those blown highlights.  Maybe I will retake them and repost them later.

"Work it, Adele."

I have really had the urge to sew lately, so I imagine many of my dolls who have been waiting for their new wardrobes will be getting something in the near future.  You know diva Dominique has been hounding me.  That's why I had to put her to work at the wedding.  I needed a break from her always being in my ear.

  6. Verona, Sergio, Vita Plastica, DBG, and Alura - Thanks. I am so glad that you like the dress. She was happy with the gesture. I hope it gives her a boost to make it through the wedding and the reception. I now need to make her something sexy for her date with Michael.

  15. D7ana - Thanks. Funny how me thanking her for 'our' hard work involves more work on my part. Such is life.

    mustiwait - Thanks. When I was organizing the other day, I ran across a dress I did for a 24" doll with pintucks, entredeux and lots of other heirloom techniques. I'm trying to get back to my sewing days of old when I was really sewing. I did make Adele another outfit yesterday. It's a nice little casual 3pc number.

    Georgia Girl - Thanks. She does deserve it. Especially being able to adapt to all those unplanned guests.

    Muff - Thanks. That would be a nice lunch dress. I'm sure once she gets settled into town, she will meet some new people to go have lunch with.

    Carrickters - Thanks! Adele is either going to be teaching a junior high class or a high school class. It could be a rough crowd.

    Marta - Thanks! I never thought I would have her in my collection. I'm so glad she has joined the group. She is a great addition.

    Sonya - Welcome to my blog. Thanks so much for commenting. You may want to start with the character tab on my blog to get a feel for the families. Not all the families are there yet. I have to take some new pictures after the wedding. If you are pressed for time, a good place to start if the beach series. That is where the Rod and Danielle unplanned love affair starts. There are multiple families on the beach trip so it's a great way to learn about them, too. Enjoy!
