Marietta

I’ve been working on some new designs to debut at BlytheCon Europe in Paris this year! I’m really happy with this Rococo influenced design; a dainty confection in a most surprising color scheme. It reminds me of a Mod Marie Antoinette, so I’ve named it after the Dauphine’s nickname, Marietta.

April Showers

… bring May flowers!

The newest version of my Pocket Dress design, Spring Umbrellas, is available now!

SHOP

Parasol Doll Spring Umbrellas

I was really happy to finally use this fabric because it’s pretty special; it is vintage designed by none other than Charles & Ray Eames!
In my experience, I’ve only found heavier upholstery fabrics in an Eames print, so I was double lucky to find something so lightweight and with umbrellas. hooray!

The other aspect that makes this dress a bit unique are the sneaky* pockets in the front colorblock section. There are two pockets and the buttons accent their locations. In this dress, Blythe can pick wildflowers, collect frogs, and hide her lollipops from the other dolls. They can also hold many of the adorable playscale printables by Bees Knees Industries.
I think the seed packets are especially appropriate!

Happy Spring dollettes! ❥ Maggie

Psychedelic Hearts

Hiya kittens!

The next design I am working on is the Psychedelic Heart Dresses!
I first debuted the Gold version at BlytheCon Seattle. Pictured here is the Silver version.
The original dress had a different name, but I always thought of them as the psychedelic dresses. Once Erica told me they reminded her of 70’s band posters, it confirmed the name!

Psychedelic Heart Dress in Silver

I am currently working on a batch for a shop update, then I will be opening up a small commission list for each version. I will be limiting the number of commissions I accept, but plan on opening the list much more often. No dolly should have to wait very long for new dresses!
I will also be trying out a new fillable form for commissions. Soon, soon, soon!

What’s up next for Parasol Doll?

My next sewing project will be a blue/green/silver version of the psychedelic rainbow design that debuted at BlytheCon Seattle. The first batch will be for a shop update.
Then, I will be opening up a small commission list for each colorway.
My plan is to keep smaller commission lists for each design I am working on so customers are not left waiting for months and I can open them up more often.
