A portent of things to come

Courtney had yesterday (and today) off from school, so she spent the entire day with me for the for the first time since school started - hurray! We had such a busy day, and we still didn't get in everything we wanted to do. But we did work on something for you to see... the long-awaited dolly fashion show!

It was a longer process than I thought it was going to be. I'd forgotten just how many outfits I'd made for Jess's baby Beth way back when! Courtney did all the dressing herself, so that added a lot little to the time, too. Here's a video of one of her dressing efforts. Be sure to turn up your volume, because what she's telling the doll is pretty cute. And watch all the way through, because you don't want to miss the ending!

At least she let me take the outfits off, so that helped time-wise. Here's the stack of most of the outfits after we got done. 

Actually, they looked a lot like that before we started, too, since they'd been stuffed into a duffle bag. So prepare yourself for a few wrinkles in the "fashions". We'll start the parade down the runway from the photo tent next week!

Cute, cute! Wow that is a lot of clothes. I want to make some outfits for Charlotte's American Girl doll for her Christmas present. I have lots of sewing projects planned between now and Christmas. It remains to be seen how many actually are accomplished...

Well, you'll get more practice with lighting in the photo tent.
Now, my expectations are high.
I know that you set the bar pretty high for yourself. Don't let it get too high.

Aren't we supposed to always keep setting the bar higher after each accomplishment?
