Debbie Does Kid Clothes (Photostory)
"I still have one more client to meet, and then I can leave. (pause) No, I have to swing by and pick up Kathryn from soccer, first...unless you want to do it? (pause) " (Debbie to her husband Dr. Shephard)
"I guess I will have to reschedule my nail appointment. You are going to owe me for this, honey. (pause) I got to go, my client is here." (Debbie ends the conversation and hangs up her cell phone)
"Well hello Tony. I was expecting Antoinette." (Debbie)
"Hey Debbie. Antoinette had to work late today, so I'm filling in." (Tony)
"What a good husband you are. Come in and have a seat." (Debbie)
"Hello Zahara. That's a pretty dress you have on today." (Debbie)
"It's my Tigger dress." (Zahara)
"I see. Very pretty." (Debbie)
"Are those mine?" (Zahara)
"Yes, they are. Let me show them to you." (Debbie)
"I like the yellow ones. That's my favorite color." (Zahara)
"Well we will let you try those on first." (Debbie)
Debbie grabs all five pair of pants before sitting down.
"Here are the yellow ones. Do you need help trying them on?" (Debbie)
"No. I can do it." (Zahara)
Zahara, with the help of her dad, undresses, then puts on the yellow pants.
"Oooh Zahara. Those are pretty." (Tony)
"Look Dad, they match my shoes." (Zahara)
"Yes, they do. You even have room to grow in these pants." (Tony)
"Can I try on the ones with the dots, next?" (Zahara)
"Sure. Here you go." (Debbie)
Doesn't take long for Zahara to kick off her shoes and the yellow pants and put on the blue and white polka dotted pair.
"Oooh, they're so pretty! (Zahara repeating what Tony had previously said)
"Stand up. Let me see." (Tony)
"Your mom is going to love this pair." (Tony)
"She loves polka dots." (Tony)
Zahara continues trying on the rest of the pants.
Next up is the blue striped pair.
Zahara admires herself in the mirror.
"Okay, that's enough primping. I'm sure Ms. Debbie would like to go home today." (Tony)
"Oh goodness. Zahara in jeans. I think that's your first pair of jeans." (Tony)
"I had to twist Antoinette's arm on the jeans." (Debbie)
"I'm sure." (Tony, chuckling)
"I like jeans, Daddy." (Zahara)
"Okay. Let's go, you have one more pair to go." (Tony)
The final pair are purple knit pants that Antoinette order specifically for the comfort of play time.
"Debbie you did a great job. My wife will be pleased." (Tony)
"I'm glad you like them. I'll pack them up for you." (Debbie)
Zahara tears herself away from the mirror and puts her dress back on. She is on cloud nine.
"So what do I owe you?" (Tony)
"Nothing. Antoinette pre-paid." (Debbie)
"Well this day just got better." (Tony)
"Thanks again." (Tony)
"Tell Antoinette that I will be starting the other part of her order next week." (Debbie)
"She ordered more? That woman." (Tony)
"Ooops. Maybe I was supposed to keep that a secret." (Debbie)
"Daddy, can I carry the bag?" (Zahara)
"You sure can." (Tony)
Tony and Zahara say their goodbyes and head out.
Nothing like a happy little fashionista.
So it's true. I will be selling clothes for the little ones soon. I already have multiple pairs of each type of pant shown. I discovered tonight that these pants only fit the SIS dolls. The Chelsea dolls are a tad bigger. So I need to make some for that size as well. Debbie will be working on tops next.
CRAFT ROOM UPDATE
If you read my last post, you know that I am finally re-doing my craft room. I made a little more progress.
I installed an L-shape desk at one end of the room. It will be used for sewing and for making my polymer clay food.
And here is the bird's eye view. Once I move the stuff from the middle of the room, I will probably put a counter height workstation in the middle. On the right wall are three bookcases that will stay.
