The Trouble is....

...when you make a red-haired doll you have to dress them in warm or neutral colors like brown, gray or green. Since most of my dolls are cool-toned I don't have any clothes that would look good on Leo-kun. I don't even think I have any fabric that would work, but I'll have to take a look. =_=

Lately, I haven't had a lot of respect for myself as a doll customizer because, among other things, I'm not that great at sewing. Other people put so much more work into their dolls than I do. True, I do root mine by hand and of course I paint their faces, but my sewing skills are so limited that I don't think my dolls will ever look the way I want them to. I'd like to think of this as a good challenge, but sometimes I just want to throw up my hands and admit that I don't have the aptitude. It sucks when no one in your family can sew, either!

It'd be cool if I could have somebody who was good at sewing design doll outfits for me! But I have a feeling that their sewing would probably be better than my painting. ^_^;...

I've always liked to make things, though, and I think that if I were to leave the sewing to someone else I'd feel like I was missing out on something. I just wish I had an easier time finding resources, because I'm always coming across sewing terms that I can't figure out no matter where I look! ^o^
