Well, my dear, you have been having just too much fun! You have lifted "playing dress up" to a higher level by making each costumes authentic to its era! It is such fun to be free enough to be what we are not. Playing pretend can be an adventure as you have shown us. Keep making costumes.

I never thought of it as playing dress up. I suppose you're right. Well, guess that means I'm tall for my age... LOL

I guess you are the most interesting person in your neighborhood. That is so cool!

Very nice! I have planned on making outfits, but on a much smaller scale. I bought an Iplehouse doll that is close to being the correct proportions, and plan on making the dresses for her. The doll has a wig, so I can style the hair to go with the clothing.
