Sneak Peak- Vogue V2902

So I've been really interested in vintage style patterns recently. Unfortunately thanks to being on the plump side and having ginormous knockers non of the real vintage patterns are remotely close to my size. Luckily vogue and butterick have recently re-released some of their vintage patterns with updated sizes.
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.

Build a Bear bunny and dress

This is the build-a-bear bunny i had made in a fun trip i went on with my sister in law. She collect these dolls and has an amazing huge collection. Well once i was there i couldn't resist. She's melody rabbit from the hello kitty brand. The clothes there are kind of expensive for them but very cute. I decided instead to bring her home and make my own dress for her.

This was a pink fabric leftover from a dress i made for my cousin and a stretchy binding for the sash. I drafted a little pattern for her first and then pinned it on her to make sure it would fit.

11cm obitsu doll body aka Thumbelina

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.
The shoes were only barely too small to fit on her feet so i slipped them on and kind of faked it. Her heel isn't actually all the way in.
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.
