I received a lovely package from amigurl55 today!

Two lovely dresses and a cape for my dolls! (modeled by Holly and Poppy)



I kid you not, I have been eyeballing the very same teapot fabric at my work for ages and trying to decide whether to buy some! It's just so adorable! So I was really excited to see a doll dress made from it!

Here's the heart dress without the cape on so you can see the neckline:



Some Monster High stickers and pins:



And I can now say I'm a Monster High collector as well as Ever After High, because amigurl also sent me an Operetta doll!



The Phantom of the Opera is one of my favorite classic novels and I love Operetta's design, so I'm excited to have her join my collection! Thanks for an awesome swap package!

Those dresses look very cute on your dolls!  I'm so glad the teapot fabric was the right decision.

I got my package from GreysPrincess today!

Some really pretty vintage dresses!  A pink dress that's perfect for Spectra, a beautiful vintage polka dot dress for Apple, and a cute 50's style outfit modeled by my new Cerise.  She also sent some stickers and candy (which I have eaten already lol).

THE WAITING IS KILLING ME! haha

I feel for you Ani Mei (BTW I missed this post sorry for the late reply  :-[) I have gotten used to the lengthy wait - I am much more patient than I used to be  :D I don't think it will be too much longer - let you know as soon as your package arrives for me - I can't wait to see it  ;D

I want every single bit of clothing I have seen - the underwear is a nice idea!! I love the fabrics and patterns everyone has used.

Ani Mei's package for me arrived and it's glorious  ;D Apologies fo a very pic heavy post  :o I can't believe I have so many beautiful clothing choices for my dolls - yes that's right plural!! I started the swap with only Operetta and since then (inspired by all the great dolls I have seen and some great sales on lately) added Skelita, Spectra and Laguna!! Check out the awesome threads and accessories Ani Mei made for me  :)

I gave rockabilly as one of my styles - I love this polka dot dress with lace and red ribbon trim. I decided to pair it with the crocheted beret and scarf Ani Mei made out of a lovely fuzzy/sequin-y yarn







Next a beautiful purple kimono that fits perfectly - modelled by Operetta



Next a slinky tiger print dress and a few more accessories - beads for bracelets and a gorgeous black bag with chain strap. Also the coolest silver belt - love the use of a jewelry clasp.





And with a red cape - love!!  :D



And last but by no means least  - a little black dress. How good does it look?!? Also a close up to chow the sequin detail





Thankyou so much Ani Mei - I am relatively new to the world of MH - the goodies you sent me has increased my obsession a thousand-fold. I hope your package arrives soon and you like them as much as I love what you have made for me  :)

"I am relatively new to the world of MH - the goodies you sent me has increased my obsession a thousand-fold."
....Muahaha my evil plan has been a success!! It is funny though how the dolls seem to multiply....I think I was at 15 when I entered the swap, and now I seem to have grown to 18 WHAT? who does that?! haha

So glad that you love everything, Skelita looks PERFECT in that dress.....honestly it makes me want to go out and get her and make one for her haha! Can't wait to see what you have made me :)

So I have received my package from Whenindoubtsew, and it was so worth the wait! I am so happy with everything! My photos absolutely do not do these clothes justice. Everything was made using my fave colours.

Jennifire wearing a lovely Gothic Lolita-ish dress


Jane wearing a super cute crocheted ruffle dress


Scaralei wearing a dress with rhinestone accent


Lagoona wearing a Victorian style dress.....I wish I had this one in my size!!


An AMAZING crocheted cardigan!! I love this...it was on my Pinterest. I actually tried to make it once and it didn't go well.....but now I have one :3


This is Roller Maze Operetta...she was on my Pinterest wishlist! I was so excited when I opened the package and saw her!!


BIG THANK YOU to Whenindoubtsew!! I love my swap package, you are so thoughtful :D
