I know I haven’t been around much. This will continue because I’m really getting to grips with dressing the 48th scale people. Here they are, so far.
It’s taken me a while to work out how to dress them. I can only dress four in a day because it’s very concentrated work. I would not have been able to do any without the help of the wonderfully thin sewing threads I bought last show, of which more in a later posting.
What I’m using is silk ribbon, so the thread has to be as fine as the ribbon. If it isn’t, when you get into close-up, it looks as if I’ve sewn clothes with ship’s anchor cables. This thread is so thin, you can get in really close to have a good look and it still looks respectable.
You have to remember that the biggest dolls here are an inch and a half tall.
All of them.
Which isn’t tall at all. If you’ve been following their creation you know these are all different dolls too, not just the same doll dressed in different ways.
I’m determined there will not only be 48th scale dressed dolls at Miniatura but there will be a good choice.
So back to the sewing table for me. When I have done plenty I’ll stop and do another room in the configurations house and show you a doll in there.
Meanwhile, let there be dolls!
