      Yes, absolutely. So nobody will wear the same stuff! I love it!

    Really like it! The back and sides of the bottom are so cool. How did you do the braided sides? Did you buy premade trim, or do it yourself? I’d love to make something like this. Where did you get your label?

      First, thank you so much.
      Second, I braided everything myself. It took quite a while, but it was worth it. I just sewed some stripes together (I can make a tutorial if you want), then braided them and sewed they on by hand.
      Third, the label I just painted with a permanet marker, but realised that maybe that wouldn’t work, so it’s hand stitch on the bikini, on the other stuff I’ve made it’s just painted on :)

      thanks! i’ll check that out. I’d say it was worth it, it really does look like professional trim.

    Like it… and the bra appears to be comfy! Are those real shells?

      Yes it is! My boobs are a bit bigger than the dolls though (and stuffing it with cotton just looked like crap.. haha!) but the bikini acctually got pretty nice support!

      And yes, a had a braclet with the shells, and after wearing it like constatly for 2 years it broke, and a re-used them for this! :)
