a new career?

it took 20 (1/8") braids, many straight pins, some glue, and several hours over 2 days, but i completed a regency hair style on a barbie. what do you think? i know, what a waste of time. blah, blah, blah. it is to go with the dress i was planning to sew. i thought, if i'm sewing a regency dress, she'll have to have the right hair. so i did the hair first.






now dot (who doesn't play with dolls) wants me to do the hair on the other 3 dolls. i guess i'll have a cast for home versions of my favorite stories. more wasted time. hey, barbie never looked so good.
okay, so i went ahead and sewed the dress. just some practice with a little scrap of material.
here's mr. darcy, he's a little wooden.

I love that last picture. Mr. Darcy's expressionless face killed me. Creating is not a waste of time, [which is why I covered 2 pillows at 11 p.m.], but that's beside the point. I think Barbie never looked better. Is there a Regency Barbie that Hasbro? makes? I applaud your tremendous efforts and that dress is sooo cute!!

you're freakin' amazing! I only wish I was as crafty and talented. I probably could accomplish more things but I don't have the patience.
