Happy Summer Everyone!
It has been quite hot and sunny weather in Finland for several weeks now. Why travel South when it appears the best weather is around your home corners? It is common for Finns to go for their summer cottages during summer. Midsummer and holiday periods, when possible. So far I have been in the city but will take this “traditional cottage trip” for two weeks in July. Looking forward to it! I am not going for sun and swimming but rather enjoy having the possibility to eat outside. Don’t you think that standing outside in the early morning listening nature. birds, and the silence with just a coffee mug on your hands is the quite amazing thing to be able to do? Even if just for few weeks at a time?
I must also thank you all for being patient. It appears I have shifted my blog update towards the end of the month. I feel it is better to do it that way.
As for the summer, I will note here as well: Tsukifly Summer holiday will start on 10th of July. So please if you are considering to place an order, do it by 8th of July to have it shipped out by 9th of July! Next shipping day will be after the holiday at the beginning of August. Thank you!
You know, I am rather happy to have Lillycat kimono trio completed finally. Three unique Kimonos with Freya as a model. Red and blue kimonos have a nice V-neck detail, the beige has white hand-sewn lining around the neck. Which style do you prefer? I am undecided which one I would prefer on Freya. More pictures of each design and available options on Etsy.
On the accessory side I updated my SD/DD stocking pattern with two unique additions. First ones are nice flower patterned stockings with velvet feel to it. The other pair is very abstract with lots of patterns and colors as well as little light yellow bowties. Both designs go a bit over the knee.
Additionally there are four different designs of SD/DD (headsize 8-9 inch but bit loose on Lillycat) ribbon bands. I am rather a fan of these. Colors ~
Happy news for Dust of Dolls owners as well! My stock was for a while completely without anything available in this size. However, now the situation has been remedied. Two new dress sets with summer feel to them (first with bloomers and second a one-piece dress) and a pair of light green patterned bloomers available separately.
This month will finish with the Summer Sakura Dream one-piece dress for SD/DD sized dolls. It is pictured here with Hisa (Volks Lorina) as my model. Lately I have come to note I really like her eyes with the default wig. Her style is a bit open still, even after all these years she has been with me. But what is the hurry anyway? The colors of this dress seem to fit well for her. What do you think?
The summer sakura dream dress took a long while to become finished. Not because of the complexity but rather because of the lack of right fabric. The upper part was already finished last summer but I didn’t have suitable skirt fabric around until recently. Luckily I came across this lovely fabric with all the little embroidered flowers on it! The color is not the usual white either. It has both violet and greenish tones to it.
In this picture Hisa also has one of the above mentioned ribbon bands. Goes nicely with the dress. So don’t forget many of the clothing pieces can be combined with little accessories from jewelry to headpieces 🐱
Despite the Summer holiday I will be taking (as mentioned already above) starting on 10th of July the usual monthly update will come around by the end of July. New pieces are also added over the month. However, the shipping of the items after 10th of July will be delayed until the first weeks of August. I shall specify the date as I get to know to more.
Enjoy the summer!
