Look! I am keeping to my set schedule with these updates.
So, straight to the updates and news.
Tsukifly Etsy Shop : Some of the older designs have been added to Etsy. So far those include Tsukifly Bunny hats (in various sizes) as well as few flower bands and two short skirts for SD size. A bit of variation already, but I should say more is to come.
New sizes : I have few visiting models. Firstly A Dust of Dolls Spün, Bubbla and secondly, Konomi, a Leekeworld Kiko with a curious DollLeeke Art Volume Body. So perhaps these visiting models get me to try out something in different sizes a bit. Thirdly a lovely Lillycat Cerisedolls Ellana, Freya arrived to fill in the gap for this curious size. Something in this size has already been tested by now so read further to discover what exactly.
New designs : Previous post was about winds of relocation and I have a feeling this one is about winds of new ideas or something such. It was probably not very innovative to go for a corset design as my first try out in Lillycat Cerisedolls size. I have seen corsets around quite a lot. But, my thing is probably the usage of certain style/patterned fabrics.
Additionally I decided to make the first two corsets without inside lining in order to make the pieces in less time and available with lower price (less working hours = lower price in this case). My aim being that these corsets are still durable and look cute even without inside lining and are (at least in my opinion!) great for any Lillycat girl to wear.
More corset designs are likely to come, the two first ones were to test the pattern and a more thick fabric, whereas the following try out will be from a different kind of fabric so we shall see if this requires some alternative measures.
These two are likely to be available through Etsy once I have time to complete their listing (pictures and description).
Overall I must say I am satisfied to the pattern and its functionality and fitting. Perhaps next to come are some skirt designs, a dress and bloomers in this size. Still a lot of work to be done with those though!
You may also see a glimpse of a shawl type design (how to name it?) on Freya (in light green color) but the pattern needs quite a lot of adjusting. I think it looks cute like this as well so perhaps more about it later.
I have also completed a kind of outfit set in Dust of Dolls size, it comes with a short shirt with lace lining and bloomers made out of some patterned fabric. I couldn’t resist the big ribbon… This first try is rather a bright combination, I try to make the second so that it will look less striking.
It seems I have taken a different approach into the making process of the Tsukifly clothing pieces. The use of patterns has increased whereas before I worked largely without any patterns. But since some designs are such that they are made in different colors multiple times over, the use of patterns make it a lot easier. Although I must say, to keep the design philosophy of Tsukifly, that each piece will still be OOAK (one of a kind), either in size or in fabrics/other details. Thus 100% similar design will not be made again.
All in all I am happy that I have found the time to complete these new pieces and I hope to adjust them further to make them fit even better. More updates will follow later.
If any of the new designs are specifically to your liking or you wish to inquire whether something similar could be made in different color etc. you are welcome to contact me and we may discuss the possibilities.
