The Classic School Girl pattern is out and up on Etsy! It took a couple extra days of work than I thought, and I had to make a last minute name change, as Vintage School Girl was too close to a few other 18 Inch pattern titles. But I'm good; classic works and it was one of my alternate working names. Read more about Classic School Girl Dress
So I've been diligently working on getting my Vintage School Girl pattern up on Etsy this week. I love this little dress, inspired by a school outfit I found in an old photo from the 1920s. But it's interesting that it also resembles classic one-piece school girl dresses from the 50s, 60s, and 70s and even 80s. Read more about Classic School Girl
This dress is pretty awesome because it can easily change themes--with a few fabric and minor detail switches--from a witch, to a pirate, to a princess, to Steampunk look, etc. I plan on making a version of all of these to showcase the versatility of this design. Read more about Fant'sy Pirate

Little Raven Creations Basics: Boxer Shorts. Soon to be here. I'm going through the final test runs today. There are actually two styles offered in this pattern; three if you count the variation on one.
Good doll boxer shorts are hard to make. How hard? Well, I wanted something that could actually be worn under clothing without bunching and lumping, so I had to strike a good balance balance between authentic and workable Read more about It's Almost Here
The proto elf hat for 18" dolls (most of them) is coming along! It looks great with the Fant'sy Vest too.
So the basic hat is done; it just needs a little elf magic bling. But even at this stage without a single bead, bell, or stitch embellishment (including on the vest) it already looks super cute. I'm hoping to have the pattern done and up on the website shop (and Etsy store) by the weekend. Read more about My Proto Elf Hat
