She's a kimono gal
For 4 years, my bears have been wearing just their birthday suits but in the past 6 months, I've been so in love with pretty doll dresses and kimonos that it's inspired me to at least give it a try making my own. For me, making dresses have proved to be much more difficult than making the bears, even when it is the very simple pillow case dress. I've resorted to the fact that I'm no dress maker like my mum and her sister who also used to design and make beautiful wedding dresses. The dress making gene which I thought ran in our family must of skipped me....sigh!
After three attempts of making an outfits for Hiroko, I think this one seems to suit her the most.
Hope you like it! Hiroko is now available for adoption, please click here for her webpage and more photos of her in her new dress! :D
