Macaron Batches!

Happy New Year Lovelies!

It brings me great pleasure to announce the Macaron Dress commission list is complete!
If you were not on the commission list, there will be a shop update with four different colors of Macaron dresses very soon!
Enormous thanks to each and every one of my customers and supporters. I hope you all love your dresses as much as I have enjoyed making them for you!

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.

The Lovely Citron Macaron

Hi hi doll faces!

Long time, no sew!*
I’m currently putting the finishing touches on a batch of Macaron Dresses in the loveliest, happy making Citron color! These dresses are as warm and bright as the unseasonably sunshiney autumn days we’ve been enjoying here in Portland.

I will be fulfilling the commissioned orders for the Macaron list, but I will have a few of these lovelies up for grabs in my shop this week. I’ll announce the update tout de suite!

Citron Macaron

*In August, I was hospitalized with Meningitis (inflammation of the membranes (meninges) surrounding your brain and spinal cord). I was diagnosed with the viral, not bacterial variety, but I had a bad reaction to the antibiotics given to me just in case it was bacterial. This lengthened my recovery time and since my immune system was exhausted, I caught every little cold and sickness possible for months afterwards. I am incredibly grateful to be fully recovered and for the medical care that saved my life.

I will be finishing up the last few commissions on the Macaron List and then I will open up a list for the psychedelic rainbow dresses. Thank you all for your continued enthusiasm!

Up next is the sunny yellow, Citron (D) color way!

Interested in a Macaron Dress of your own? The Macaron Dress list will reopen in August.
I hope to have some for sale at BCEU Amsterdam and BCUS Seattle!

The Extraordinary Mango Macaron!

The first batch of Macaron Dress Sets in Mango are complete! This warm, vibrant color has been a joy to sew with between the spring showers and glorious spring sunshine.

I like big bows and I can not lie! *giggle*

I have a few more of these to sew up, then it will be on to Raspberry (color E)!

Macaron Dress List

The Macaron List is currently CLOSED. It will reopen in August 2014. Thank you!

– Hello dolls –

One of the hardest decisions for me has been whether or not to keep a commission list of sorts. I tried a modified type of list with my Queue, but it did not work as well as I’d hoped. I know a traditional commission list won’t work for me for a variety of reasons, so I am always brainstorming ways of getting my dresses on the dolls of the people who want them most.
After much consideration, I’ve decided to open up a list for Macaron Dresses!

♣ Joining the Macaron List ♠

Email me {maggie @ parasoldoll.com} with the following information:

  • First Name
  • Relevant Usernames, Flickr, Instagram, etc.
  • PayPal email & contact email, if different
  • Country for Shipping (must be the PayPal address)
  • First color choice and a back up color if desired

I sew Macarons one color at a time in batches of 4-6 dresses. Once I begin a color, I will contact the first few names on the list and create a private listing in my shop. Once the dresses are complete, I will send them out and list any remaining dresses for sale.
I will not contact you unless I’ve begun sewing the color you choose. I reserve the right to balance sales between the list and shop.

Macaron Dresses include a French lace petticoat & silk hair bow.
Please review my Policies.

Macaron Colors

A note on fabrics and colors:
Fabrics A, B, & C are textured with clip dots which you can see as little nubbs in the photo. Fabrics D, E, F, G, & H are smooth and do not have clip dots.
As we all know, on screen colors vary. I do my very best to represent colors as accurately as possible and they look correct on my screen. If you have concerns or need an exact match, contact me before purchasing.

Colors A, B, & C are no longer available.
