Imitation of Life

Another favorite film of mine with costumes that I love.

Lora Meredith (Lana Turner) wore this stunning sheath and turban ensemble to her daughter's graduation.

Lora wore this cream wool dress and coat home from her trip overseas


Lora wore this lovely lace dress to a party after a very successful premiere.

Funny Face

I love the movie Funny Face. There are so many costumes I want to create for Gene. Here are a couple of past creations from the archives.

Taking a Break From Sewing

It's that time of the year when I pack up my fabric, dolls, and fashion books and pull out the scrapbook supplies. I love both my obsessions very much, but unfortunately I don't have the space to have everything out at the same time.

My dream hobby room would have tons of counter space for both hobbies. Then I could flit back and forth between projects and do whatever I want. I wonder if I would get anything done.

I hope to finish scrapping 2007 in a couple of months. Then I will be back to sewing for Gene and friends. This blog will be my showcase. I will make two of everything; one to keep and one to sell on ebay or on the doll boards. I will also be taking order on many of my outfits. That way people can get what they want and I won't spend time making outfits that don't sell well.

One of my main focuses will be replicating classic film costumes. I will make costumes from "Meet Me in St. Louis", "Funny Face", "Rear Window", "Imitation of Life" and many others.
