Etsy Find: Rainbow Lily Designs

I have another awesome Etsy shop to tell you about–Rainbow Lily Designs!  I actually purchased something from them a while ago, but just a few weeks ago I picked up something else, and I loved it so much, I decided I needed to tell you about this shop.  She makes a variety of different doll clothing items, but her denim jackets are just awesome!

Here we have Zara and Sophia modeling the two that I have for the gang.  As you can see, the fit is perfect on both of these.  I love all of the little details.  I will note that the button holes do not work, but that is the way that the pattern these are made from is.  (I have the pattern)

Here is a close up of the blue denim jacket:

I love all of the top stitching on this, it is absolutely perfect!  I miss my old Levi’s denim jacket from 20 years ago when I look at this.  I can’t imagine doing all of that and managing to keep it so well lined up.

The top stitching on the back is just as perfect!


Here you can see that all of the inside seams are overcast, making this piece very durable for play.

And a close up of the pink denim jacket:

I fell in love with this jacket the minute I saw it and ordered it immediately. I wouldn’t mind having one just like it in human size!

A picture of the back:

And a shot of the lace yoke. I love the lace accents on this jacket, it gives it a very chic fashionable look.

Be sure to check out Aimee’s shop, she has so many cute pieces. Evil Twin has picked up a piece or two from her, including a denim vest made much like the denim jackets. Love her work and I’m sure I’ll be back for more!

Guest Post: Boy Story Clothes Available On Etsy!

Today’s post is by Sharry from Julie Newman’s 70’s Time Capsule.  Take it away Sharry!

Hi everybody!

You might remember my review comparing Boy Story dolls to other custom made boy dolls. Although Boy Story dolls are really poseable and fun to play with, their overall build is bigger than most American “Boy” type dolls. This of course presents a problem if you want your guy to have different clothes, as the Boy Story folks haven’t started selling separate outfits yet. Well look no further! I have found 2 Etsy sellers who can make clothes to Boy Story specifications. The first is Diane at “Lotsogoodies”. She makes t-shirts, jeans, sweat pants and swim trunks for your Boy Story Dolls! Here’s my Boy Story doll Billy (renamed Marc) in her t-shirts:

I love the sweat pants! They look so comfy, I wish I had a pair

The second is Libby at “Designed4Dolls”. While she doesn’t have any Boy Story items listed, she will happily do custom work upon request! Here is Marc modeling some of her groovy 70s fashions (for my doll blog!):

These 2 sellers are super to work with should you want a different look for your doll. Thanks Flo for allowing me to do another guest post and for supporting Etsy sellers!

So long from Marc and Sharry from Julie Newman’s 70s Time Capsule

Thanks so much Sharry for this information!  I’m always happy to hear about an Etsy seller that is willing to help someone out in the doll community with an unusual request–and as always, shop small!  Plus I have to agree, I wouldn’t mind having a set of those sweats in human size too.  😉

If you’ve been reading this blog for any amount of time, you know I love Etsy.  And I especially love discovering a new Etsy seller!  I’m a big believer in supporting small business too, so to me, Etsy is a win/win.  I recently purchased an adorable set of pj’s from an Etsy seller I hadn’t tried before, and I wanted to share my thoughts on them with you!

I’m a sucker for doll pajamas, and I have a bunch of them.  When I saw these online, I was immediately interested and favorited them.  Finally I couldn’t stand it anymore, I just had to have them!  So glad I did too, they are adorable.

Doesn’t Jenny look adorable in these? The set included the top and bottoms. Both pieces are very well made and fit perfectly. I love the design on the shirt!  In case you can’t read it, it says “Wakey, wakey, eggs ‘n bakey”.  🙂

The material for the bottoms couldn’t be anymore ideal:

The shirt closes in the back with Velcro and the bottoms are pull on style with an elastic waist.

The shop I purchased this set from is Nuclear Needle Arts.  Kelly offers a wide variety of doll clothes to fit multiple sizes of dolls as well as other items.  I was very impressed with all of the different items she offered, she does vintage style clothing as well as shoes.  Looking for doll sized shoe lasts?  She has those too!

Be sure to check out her shop, so many fun things to look at.  I know I will be stopping by to shop again!
