Dress for 12 inch Bru

I finally finished the dress for my little Bru! I believe this is my first time to use sage green antique silk fabric to dress Bru doll. I had very small remnant of this fabric ( just enough to make this little dress ) and I used every inch of it. Coming up with a design  when you have limited materials is always a challenge and it’s like a puzzle.I have to spend more time for designing than actual sewing. But I am happy with the result and I hope my little Bru feels the same. 🙂


My favorite antique buttons. Perfect coloring for this dress. お気に入りのアンテイークボタン。ドレスとの色具合がちょうど良いので惜しみなく使います。

Body for Millet Bru completed

I made Chevrot style body for 12 inch Bru Jne doll.
I acquired another antique eyes for this head and still can’t decide which eyes to use.
Maybe after I finish the dress ???


new antique eyes I just acquired

can’t decide which eyes to use…

Millet Bru second head

I made second Millet Bru head.
These two heads are made from the same mold. I used the same antique glass eyes and wig. Just changed way of painting and eye cut and made some other adjustments. I like second head so much better.😊

I often receive inquires about heads I don’t use like this one. The answer is,  I keep all of them in my “box of extra heads” till I use someday. They may not look right to me today but I could change my mind in future. You never know. Thank you again for all your inquiries

最初に作った子のように、使わないヘッドはどうするのですか?というお問合せをよくいただきますが、それらは全部箱に保管してあります。いつか使う日が来るかもしれないので、その日が来るまでみんな眠っています. 🙂

A Happy New Year!

2018 was a very good year for me as a doll artist. I have met so many new doll friends inspired me deeply. I truly appreciate all of you who supported me through the year. Hope 2019 will be happy and healthy year for everyone!
