|My old Snow White doll posing in her|
new outfit (she's missing some eyelashes).
Well, actually my inspiration came from somewhere else. I recently found a old bag, which has been lost and found and lost and found during al the moving from the past few years. It contained my grandma's last projects before she passed away. I was pretty awed by this finding, and immediately decided to turn her last projects into something she would have loved. She had already started to make the skirt, so I finished it. While analyzing the other materials, I figured that she had wanted to finish the outfit with a jacket. So I tried to make one of those old fashioned traveling coats women wore in the 1850's.

|The beautiful skirt under the coat was made|
by my lovely grandma.
|I'm really happy with the way the lace worked out,|
plus the rhinestones are fabs!
|Since the back was a bit tight, the train|
of the skirt didn't end up so well...
I still have three other dolls that need some serious upgrading, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Belle. Since I've had them like forever I'll be taking them to my apartment when I move out this February. But I figured that simple Princess Dresses won't be considered 'cool' in a student dorm, so the others will be upgraded to more modern fashion I guess. Next up is Sleeping Beauty. I have some pink scraps left from the Barbie dress, so guess I'll use those to make her a beautiful new dress. With a train, roses and glitters. Yes that sounds great!
