Here is a close up of Annika's new hand stitched leather shoes. They are in the classic studio style. The pattern is an original Migros pattern that was tweaked a bit to suit my purpose. I hope to have more summer shoes completed in the near future. Also watch for more summer outfits for Gregor. The boys are feeling a bit neglected.
Here's a full length view of Annika's Studio Style Dress. The lovely white cotton fabric with green floral print was part of the prize package from Ted for the Apron Dress Contest. It's funny how fabric speaks to you. This one was screaming ...Studio Style Dress. I added hemstitch detailing on the sleeve and near the hem.

I'd like to introduce you to Anna. She started out as a Sasha Velvet. Her original dark wig just did not go with her beautiful light blue eyes. I gave her a blonde wig with wispy bangs and she stole my heart. I recently learned that my paternal Great Grandmother's name was Anna. It's the perfect name for this little sweetie.
I'd just like to share a picture of the Sasha Summer Swap outfit I created. The swap was really fun. It's like Christmas in May. I like to title my outfits, so this one will be "Summer Fun". I was trying to make sandals to go with the outfit, but discovered that I not only made them too tight, but I glued the right strap to the left shoe. What's that saying..."measure twice, cut once". There has to be a similar one for making shoes. "fit twice...glue once".
