Merry Christmas to all my visitors who pass by this blog, whether you're a faithful follower looking for ideas and patterns to create for your doll or a passer-by who simply likes looking at the pictures. Thank you all for visiting my page and thank you for your support and lovely comments. At this time me and the dollies at Fashion Doll Stylist would like to wish each and every one of you (and your dolls) a very, creative, fun-filled, Merry, Merry, dollicious Christmas!
In celebration of the holidays, FDS would like to offer you our rendition of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. (Our sincerest apologies to the original author, Clement Clarke Moore (1779-1863).)
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even the Fashion Royalty dolls, the latest to enter the house.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that April would soon pass with lots of new clothes by there.
The dolls were perfectly posed on their stands,
Though a few, thinking to grab a few gifts, tried to flex their hands.
Adrianna, Carla, Pat, Eva and Nichelle, all the Barbies were ready,
Veronique, Jordan, Christie and the other Royals held steady.
While visions of clothes, and accessories danced in their heads.
April was set to retire her needle and thread.
When over in the den arose such a clatter,
The dollies sprang from their posts to see what was the matter.
Away to the door they flew like a flash,
With hopes of getting a glimpse of their new stash.
The light on the sewing machine provided just enough light,
They were able to see lots of party clothes for any festive night.
When, what to their wondering eyes should appear,
April holding miniature designer handbags, fur coats, and an assortment of leather gear.
More rapid than eagles she created such fabulous gear,
That all the dolls began to cheer!
April’s eyes-how they twinkled! She was definitely feeling merry!
She made us all something lovely including Christmas dresses in tones of red cherry!
A seasoned fashion pro, she is a diva, thin and chic,
In contrast, we are plastic, barely 12 inches and at times, meek.
As all the dolls strained to see what else was there,
April laid out suits of clothes for Ken and his friends on a nearby chair.
One thing was clear, as we looked to see more,
None of this came from any store!
Leather suits, sheepskin coats, spats and leather skirts,
And yes there were Valentino look-alikes, miniature Diors and Versace medallion shirts.
Lace bustiers, Easter hats, red-carpet gowns, and corsets galore,
How could we ask for anything more!
April spoke not a word as she continue to work,
Laying all of our clothes out, then suddenly turned with a jerk.
She thought she heard us, so she ducked out of sight,
But just before going to bed, she said,
"Merry Christmas to all, and to all my dollies, a good-night!"
