Fashion in Miniature

So, what have I been up to? Well, here is an example. Here we have Tyler Wentworth, okay, two Tyler Wentworths, a redhead and a brunette, sporting the latest Becca creations.

The brunette wears a sweet little outfit in red cotton with tiny little hearts. I didn't expect the skirt to be so full, but sometimes these things happen. The best part? She's wearing the cutest little brocade coat.

The redhead has on a hand knitted lacy top along with another red coat, this one with the brocade as lining instead of as the shell of the coat.

The purpose of this miniature couture? Well, partly because I always seem to pick up dolls that are homeless and clothes-less. The other reason is this is a great way to work through those little bits of fabric left over from real projects. The tiny bit of brocade I used for these wonderful coats came from a ren-faire bodice I made for a friend years ago. I can't be positive, but I think the lining is from the only wedding dress I ever made.

I'm not sure what my next project will be. I think I'll stick with little fashion for a little while. Maybe if I get really adventuresome, I'll venture into the miniature shoe business.
