Our new group project for April is going to  be pool party outfits in honor of Memorial Day being the official beginning of summer. Just like last time, everyone is encouraged to participate and you can interpret this anyway you like. You have all month to work on it and we'll post our creations on this board.

I have some Barbie swimsuit patterns I'm going to try to scale down and post here, see it that works.

What a cute idea! Love it! <3

This sounds like fun :)  What a great idea!

I love the idea, do I have to make a bathing suit though, or can I make a sundress?

I guess if you don't want to get in the pool you can wear a sundress to the pool party ;)

Finished my Memorial day challenge. Figured the girls would have a tikki-party to celebrate the day off. And I'm loving the challenges! Bring the next one on! This idea started with the "Missoni-ish" fabric... it was going to be a one piece, but it wasn't working the way I planned so I did this instead. (Just wish I had a small drink for her hand!) The top is one piece about 6" long. wraps around neck, around to front then snaps in back. Bottom is a tube skirt with triangles radiating from the center seam that then tie in the front. Both are double-layered and seamed due to the the thinness of the fabric. Other images are on my photo page.

I have the project done, I just need to set up the pictures.

I should have them posted by Wednesday.

I have uploaded some "details" if you are interested in making the wrap skirt or top from above. They are on my page. I'm going to try to upload the PDF of my skirt pattern. (Not sure if PDFs work here... if not... I'll try to change it.)

Okay, For this one I started out making a beach towel. Then the paint needed to fix my first doll mod came in and things evolved from there. I am including the 'before fixing' pic of the doll. Her name is Gillia (originally Webber - but I may change the last name).

This is what she looked like as of last fall.

Her right leg got messed up from me trying to seal the red stripes with a clear nail enamel (that unfortunately had acetone in it). I found it is extremely important to read labels.

 

I was not all that enthused with her outfit. It seemed kind of stuffy to me. So it had to be redone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                 Here she is relaxing in the water.

                                                 Much easier for her to breath.

 

                                                 Of course she needed a swim

                                                   suit, but what to wear out of the

                                                   water?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Her she is waiting for those pesky normies to clear off the beach so she can enjoy herself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                Here she is gaining her courage to

                                  face her first day at school.

 

                                 Hope you enjoyed them. This was

                                 fun and helped me get her

                                 officially done.

Here is her fashion board I created to focus my thoughts on her. My daughter gave me the water tank for Gil to replace my homemade one.

I love that swimsuit, Gabby! And I love Gillia's green sheen...a very pretty color.

I have a sundress done and I was hoping to put together some swimwear, but of course I am last-minute cramming again...will post something by the weekend!
