… bring May flowers!

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


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

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.
