Merry Christmas


Merry Christmas to all my visitors who pass by this blog, whether you're a faithful follower looking for ideas and patterns to create something fabulous for your doll or a passer-by who simply likes looking at the pictures. Thank you all for visiting my page, for your support and for all the lovely comments you leave. 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!

Five years ago, we shared a poem with you that we felt was time to offer up once again. In celebration of the holiday, here's our dolly 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 dolls in my 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, Estelle, Radiah and Nichelle, all the Barbies were ready,
Veronique, Jordan, Sofia and the other Royals held steady.
Away to the door they flew in a flash,
With hopes of peaking at their new stash.
The light on the sewing machine provided just enough light,
For the dolls 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 leather gear,
So much so, the dolls all began to cheer!
April’s eyes-- oh how they twinkled! She was definitely feeling merry!
She made us all something lovely to wear 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, quite meek.
As the dolls strained to see what else was there,
April laid out suits of clothes for the dude dolls 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 Chanel suits 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 she turned with a jerk.
She thought she heard us, so she ducked out of sight,
But just before going to bed, she whispered:

"Merry Christmas to all, and to all my dollies, a good-night!"

My apologies for the lull in postings and the lateness in responding to your comments. I've been battling a succession of colds over the past month. However, I'm feeling much better and already working on one more tutorial which will be up in just a few days!!! Stay tuned.
