MLCD Ballerina Costume

It seems like such a long time since I was last writing a post for this blog and I’ll fill you in on all thats been happening in another post.

Anyway, Many of you who make the MLCD patterns might know they come with outfits, but people who buy the pattern on Etsy might not be aware of it. I make very little money from my patterns and I’ve made the decision to start charging for the outfit patterns. I’m sure most people will recognise that if I am to continue writing patterns I need to charge for them but I also expect someone will have a wee rant about the unfairness of life.

Anyway, it has to be done if I’m to survive in this crazy world where we don’t appreciate creative people!

The MLCD ballerina pattern has been updated to include the full pattern for shoes, underwear and the dress and can be found on Ravelry and Etsy.

Some of you might know I now make my dolls using 100% British wool, which I hand dye in skin tones. Anyway, here’s an image of the much improved Ballerina Costume.
