Lena's Growing Wardrobe
Lena is becoming a sewing maniac. She sews whenever she gets a free moment, which is sometimes in the middle of the night when both her Alans are sound asleep. She added a couple more skirts and a simple knit dress to her personal wardrobe.
One of the skirts is a nice long jean skirt.
Here's a back view. It has a little split at the bottom.
This is her second skirt. I hate that it doesn't photograph well, because it's really nice. It's made from a very soft dressy type fabric. Lena really enjoys making skirts. I'm trying to convince her to start making some blouses and shirts to go with the other pieces. She's not really listening. She wants to make some more pants and skirts first.
Speaking of pants....these are the plaid sample pants she made a couple weeks ago. She grabbed a shirt and sweater from the Barbie Style ladies and decided this could work together until she makes something else.
Lena then made a sloper and pattern for a knit style dress. She's pretty pleased with how it turned out. Personally, I think this would be nice for one of the Asian ladies. That motif just screams Asian to me. Maybe the new Mixi girl can fit it.
Here's a view from the back.
Here is the Mixi lady who will be trying this dress next. If this one doesn't fit, I'm hoping Lena will make her one that does.
Valencia has put in a request for a shorter jean skirt. In the meantime, she said this one will work, too. I guess it's true what they say, "beggars can't be choosy."
