Thanks for the compliments on the clothing!
About the top:
javarose:I didnt use a pattern, but sort of made it up along the way. The draping is simply done at the doll after making the hole for the head in the fabrics. I found the midpoint and started pinning up folds with a fingers width outwards. then i folded and stitched around the neckline. I am considering making some more to give away for christmas presents, in that case I am happy to make a tutorial if you guys are interested:)
Marie: I thought the same when I saw it on the doll after finishing it- but it turns out that when I am wearing it some of the "headhole" (whats it called?
) is falling down at my back, leaving a "V" shape at my back so that it doesnt fall off.
The fabric for the skirt is bought at "stoff og stil", originally a Danish consept that has opened stores in Norway. They have a webshop at www.stoffogstil.no
, but I dont know if they ship stuff over the pond or how expensive that would turn out to be:-[ Also the page is in Norwegian so contact by mail might be a good idea if you are interested.
Marie: Ah, so you have experienced the drinking culture of maskinteknikk. They are truly comitted to give newbies at uni a rather elaborating lesson in Norwegian "water of life" and how to consume as much as possible of it at shortest possible time! I can assure you that we are not all like that:) - At least not all of the time
