Hello, my Name is Deborah...and I'm an Addict...
OK before anyone freaks out...no drugs, no alcohol...nothing like that! I have discovered Re-ment. Re-Ment items are collectible 1/6th scale miniature accessories from Japan. I bought 6 sets last week and they arrived today. So as to not overload y'all with a zillion pics see them all over on my Flickr. The other super cool thing about some of the rement packs is they have shoes, shoes that FIT Libby!!!! Hooray! So now I just need to set about altering some Barbie patterns, (or hunting down some Skipper ones) to make Libby some new clothes. I did also discover some of the skirts that at 'scandalously' short on Barbie are the perfect APPROPRIATE length for Libby!
Next up is Ellie, modeling a mottled grey Skirt and 'fur' trimmed vest. (the pink items were purchased) The Skirt and vest have both been machine and hand sewn, as well as darted to allow for better fit. Vest just slips on, while the skirt closes down the back length with velcro. (which has been attached with Fabri-tac glue AND stitching!) The hems have also been finished in this double method to protect against the seams and hems pulling out during playtime!
