MJ the Model
I made MJ a few pieces of clothing,
we have had a lot of fitting sessions.
MJ is really patient, she is used to working
as a model and does the job very well.
Jaynie and MJ found this piece of embroidered lace in my stash,
when I wrapped it around MJ it looked like it was made for her.
The lace is quite sheer
so I made a little red skirt to go under it,
for modesty sake.
The second dress is made from a head band,
a tube of very stretchy fabric, which makes it easy to put on.
The tube was a bit too wide so I had to add a seam up the back.
The length of the dress can be changed
easily by turning the tube at different places.
And it can also be worn as a skirt, very versatile.
I used the piece that cut from the back to make a
little wrap with sleeves.
This little skirt is my favorite, I used iron-on tape
for the bottom and side hems, then I machine stitched
the darts, top and a small piece of Velcro in back to make an
I'm trying to make a few tops
but it is not quite as easy as the skirt.
MJ's clothes are very small, the fabric for the skirt
is only 4 1/4 x 2 5/8"
Jaynie and I are having so much fun with MJ.
I'm sorry that it has taken so long to do another posting with MJ,
real life again interferes at the worst mini-ing times.
I'm hoping that we will be able to fit in a bit more sight seeing this week.
I'm also hoping that I can put together a late Halloween party, MJ has a
costume ready and Jaynie's is almost done.
I almost forgot to tell you, I started a board on Pinterest MJ's World Trip , I think that I got every where that she has been so far but if I missed you or have anything wrong please let me know.
Thank you for visiting, Mary
