The extra panels give you lots of feminine sweep, freedom of movement. The colors coordinate with our knit tops and sweaters. The thick elastic waist lets you slip into it easily and allows for a custom, comfort fit. Our plus size skirt is easy, colorful...

I ordered this skirt in a 1x and it fits perfectly. I have a 42" waist and 46" hips. The fabric is a nice thickness and isn't see through at all. The skirt is very soft and super comfortable. I adore the pockets in the seams. It's nicely long i'm 5'4" and it goes low on my ankles. As you walk it has a gorgeous swing to it. I seriously love this skirt. I want it in the other colors now.

I saw this one and just fell in love with it.
I've actually finished the dress already but haven't got pictures of it worn yet. Hopefully i can get those up soon. I did modify it a bit.
This is a cute plaid fabric i had a ton of and the bodice is lined in a purple satin.
Until i get some picture here are two of the during progress pictures.
So I saw these released and was so excited to see them in person. It's an obitsu body fully poseable and jointed like my 27cm one (barbie size) but this one is super tiny. It's 11cm which is the approximate same size as a little kelly doll (barbies littlest sister).
I got without magnets in the feet but even without them it is very well balanced and can stand on its own. My only complaint is the arms hands and feet are super loose and tend to fall out while dressing it. The pieces are so small I'm worried about losing them.
Well since they don't come with a head you have to buy those separately for customizing or find one you like on a similar sized doll. My hubby got me this super cute tiny "fancy nancy" doll.
I took her head off and put it on the obitsu body. She really looks great on her new articulated body. I love her little dress that came with her and it fit the body perfectly.
Isn't she cute? What do you think?
I've decided to name her Thumbelina. I want to get some dollhouse furniture or house for her to use. She'd look so cute and she's the perfect size for traditional dollhouse scale.

It's monogrammed using my Brother's monogramming feature and it turned out quite lovely as a bit of personalization. I ended up not using any interfacing to do the embroidery cause i didn't want a weird stiff part on such a soft blanket. I just made sure to pull the fleece very tight over the frame. It worked perfectly and I'm really glad i didn't interface that part.
I enjoyed this so much and she seemed to adore it. I was so happy to see how she liked it. I think this year all family members are getting a personalized blanket. That way they all have something I made for them. I saw some really cute disney fleece panels on frabric.com that are tempting me.
