Afternoon Roses

Lark is modeling a classic style afternoon tea dress in a pattern of vintage roses with a square neckline. I spent last weekend drafting the pattern for the dress and I made it yesterday. The lace is 100% cotton delicate lace that one of my dollhouse friends sent me years ago. I used pearl seed beads to make her a little necklace, too. I didn't show it, but the back closes with snaps that I placed pearl beads over. I just got Lark's cousin, Piper, too. I'm loving these Chrysalis girls! Piper is just too cute with her freckles. I will be making her something new to wear here sometime soon and I'll show her, too.

I ordered Lark some nice pale pink mary janes (please excuse the coral shoes) but they haven't arrived yet. It's surprisingly difficult to find shoes that fit her. I ordered some that were purported to fit her but they are too loose. Anyone have a BJD or other doll that fits a 58 mm shoe? I have two pairs up for grabs for $5 each (one yellow, one cream). Just drop me a line.
