Wow I was really impressed how the bride doll looked just like the bride that you did it for. Your work is fantastic!

I love the Marie A. dolls.  I am still trying to figure out how to make the support for that sort of dress myself.  You do beautiful work, though.

Thanks :thankyou:.....My mother, Grandmother, Great grandmother were all master costumers who made for movies and stage productions for allmost a hundred years and now I got all there patterns so I just scale them down for the dolls... the Marie are made from Historical patterns and all the undies they wore back then....the undergarments take almost as long to make as the gowns. ..but they are my fav's to do.

We'd love to see a tutorial on how you make the paniers in doll scale!

That is a job I think I'd enjoy except for the sewing machines.  I bet they made some wonderful costumes.

Have you ever heard of Magic Makers?  They supply movies with costumes all the time.  I work in the town where their headquarters are located.  They make all the costumes in the space above the shop here.  I've seen some of their handmade costumes.  They do amazing work.

Yes they did...my mothers garage if full of costumes...no I've never heard of Magic Makers, it's a job I'd love too, to make stuff for a movie like LOTR that would be something...I didnt really get into the costume thing until late in life if it didnt have 4 hooves and a saddle I didnt care about it...... I've never made a  tutorial  but I'll see what I can put togather. :martistic:

I cantbelieve this is happening to me now. Go Daddy screwed up my automatic renewal of my domain and some reseller snatched ituo and is holding it ransom for $488 usd (that would be $664 converted to canadain dollars). That is insane. Especially since I have already prepaid my annual web hosting fees and i have no domain!! I cant even access my hosting site to retrieve my files....
