A quick little tutorial on lining a sleeveless bodice, an easy technique that gives a nice clean finish.

I haven't been very active on this blog lately, not because I haven't been sewing but because I haven't had the time or decent light to take many photos.

I always wanted Simon to have a black coat, something a little severe, a little Matrix with a touch of military. It was fun to get out of my comfort zone and try something completely different. His elegant long legged slim body makes everything look good.
I wanted his coat to have oversized shoulders and yet keep a very sleek, slim fit. To balance out the shoulder line I figured an A-line bottom was in order, I also wanted the coat skirt to have 7 box pleats all around so it could flare out and yet lie down relatively narrow. I also added two cut pocket with wide welts, and a high collar which Simon with his long neck wears rather well. The black contrasts nicely with his pale skin and his rather intense look.

He truly is, his sculpt is so delicate with that subtle rabbit look. Volks outdid themselves with this cutie! And his little clothing set is outstanding. He's my first Volks lottery win, I didn't get Lorina but I managed to take this sweetheart home.

Hehehe!  Our beloved Montreal Canadiens beat the Washington Capitals in the first round of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals! Simon sends his most snarky condolances to all his hockey buddies in Washington as he prepares to enjoy the next series against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Since we lost Victor my husband and I found the house sooooo quiet, we decided to get another cat. We adopted quite a few abandonned cats over the years but this time we figured we deserved a kitten and we wanted another Norwegian Forest Cat. He will be coming home to us in early May, these are photos from the breeder. He is four and half months as of now and already weighs 3.3 kg.He is quite big for his age, and judging by his magnificent father he is going to be huge!
Here is Theodore Berlioz De Bracel (his official name), who will thereafter be known as Theo.

I have been meaning to make up this dress ever since I picked up Haute Doll magazine's April 2008 issue which featured Arcadia dolls ,one of my favorite doll costumers. The mag included a pattern in MSD size, so no need to re-invent the wheel I grabbed this piece of iridescent taffeta I had lying around and set to work so Loulou could have her dress for the doll meet.
