Things seem to be proceeding very slowly around here for the past few weeks. I am trying to get back in the groove but urg- it can be a struggle! I have some tattooed ladies to finish up but I feel like I’ve been fighting with them for the past week. We might have reached a truce and some are getting finished.
Here is a profile photo-

I have been working on redesigning my lady body pattern for the tattooed ladies. Last week, after I got back from Chicago, I cut out some ladies from my new patterns. On Friday I dyed the fabrics. I sewed over the weekend and am now in the process of finishing some up. Here is my first one finished-
A profile shot-
She has silk bows and flowers in her hair.
And here you can see her figure-
A silk sash and bow in the back.
And I made her a boa out of the dotted net fabric.
I had fun playing with her hair design- embroidered waves and a curl.
I’m quite sure she is a twenties girl but that might be because I was listening to a Phryne Fisher Mystery while I was working on her.
I will post one more tomorrow and then all the available ones will go into my Etsy shop.
She is going into my shop as soon as I finish over here. And there is another lady too. These are the last of the dolls before Christmas.
This is a dancer with a curvy figure!
With a bit of a Wonder Woman look. I don’t plan on that, it just happens. She has zoo tattoos.
You can see the wavy fabric print here-
A vintage button-
I think they look like sisters, maybe even twins!
I will be putting these 2 ladies into my Etsy shop today and also this fine fellow. I never heard back from the person who commissioned him. In case you wonder why I don’t usually take commissions…
And, my toy designs are on sale over at Land Of Nod if you’ve been holding off on purchasing something.
