The weather has just turned very autumn-like today, making it all the more clear that summer is now in the realm of memories.
This is another summer memory that I share with Ashlynn Ella, who accompanied me to the seaside.
This doll bracelet works rather well, doesn’t it? It’s a jewelry piece from craft store, it is used to separate beads in necklaces. The braid-like ornament reminds me especially of Holly O’Hair, but it fits this model and outfit no less.
I sewed the dress especially for a summer occasion like this. It is based on an in-depth tutorial by Strawberry Butterscotch. I would definitely recommend it: it can be used to make a dress for any doll, but the author gives you pre-measured dimensions to fit Ever After High dolls, and thanks to a smart workaround, there is no need to hem the neckline. I made minor changes by adding a sweetheart finish to the top, adding straps and opting for a longer skirt. I used lightweight white cotton, and, overall, ended up with something I would gladly wear at the edge of the sea myself.
In the photo, the dress bunches up a little, because I needed to anchor the doll in the sand to keep her steady without using a stand.
This little bottle would have made a nice souvenir once the photo session was over, but, unfortunately, it must have been lost on the beach. I wonder if someone was thrilled to find it.
We will have to find other ways to remember.
She really looks quite Royal, though in a rather different way than the usual fairy-tale sense.
And so, the sun sets over the summer days.
