SOLD  Thanks.  I made this dress a while ago for Tonner dolls and decided to rework the pattern for Gene, and I'm really pleased with the result.  This is a new fabric--rayon charmeuse--that I decided to try after running across it on the Mood Fabrics website so see how it compares to silk charmeuse.  It's a smidge heavier but it presses well and has a decent amount of drape.  Compare it to the silk charmeuse one I did for Tonner.  

The orchid dress is lined in silk habotai and has a zipper closure in the back.  There are tons of possibilities for accessorizing this gown.  I just threw on a "fur" stole and some "diamonds" I happened to have.  It does fit Liz as well but it was a tight squeeze getting over her butt.  The gown is available for $130 plus $6 shipping in the US.  (Actually the Tonner gown is available as well.)  Email me at if interested.  


Red and Silver Holiday Dress and Coat for Gene

SOLD  Thanks.  I'm sorry I didn't get this posted in time for the holidays because it's a perfect ensemble for the holiday season.  A friend of mine gifted me this red silk shantung that just screamed evening coat.  The silver satin I used for the dress is Robert Kaufman Radiance which is a silk/cotton blend.  The bow and matching clutch are both adorned with rhinestone embellishments.  The dress closes in the back with snaps.  It looks equally elegant on Liz and Zita.  The dress, coat and clutch are available for $150 plus $6 shipping in the US.  Email me at if interested.  


Party Gown in Teal Silk For Gene Body Dolls


SOLD  Thanks.  I've managed to get a few things done in the last few weeks but I'm so behind in posting.  I finally recovered from the Covid but had daily headaches that lasted for weeks afterward.  I was thrilled when those went away around the beginning of January but then promptly got bronchitis.  That's starting to get better now so I'm playing catchup.  This is a reproduction of a vintage design design (pic at end) done in teal and ecru silk.  I didn't have enough of the teal silk to make a full length skirt so opted for a high-low version which I think works really well.  I may have gone overboard with the ecru tulle ruffle attached to the skirt lining.  Six yards of ruffled tulle was more than I really needed but it does make for a really full skirt.  The dress closes with snaps in the back and there is also an interior ribbon waist tie to help hold up the weight of the dress.  This dress is available for $130 plus $6 shipping in the US.  Email me at if interested.
