Made a dress for Freja ...
I didn't think I'd ever get into having 16-inch dolls again, but I'm enjoying Freja. For one thing, it's more fun and less stressful for me to sew clothing for the larger scale body. I just finished this faux leather dress especially for Freja. The white polka-dotted belt is removable; I only just made it because it went with the awesome hat, which I stole from a Gene outfit. (I have no talent for making hats. LOL.) The Gene outfit that went with the hat unfortunately was too tight for the FR:16 body. I could get the dress on her, but it wouldn't snap up all the way in back.
Freja needed a basic "little black dress" anyway. Hee hee. The jewelry is also from Gene (I think), but I forget which outfit it was from. I have a bunch of old Gene clothing shoved into a drawer, here, and some of the pieces have gotten separated.
I've discovered the FR:16s seem to fit well into the Integrity-made Gene clothing and shoes, but not so well into the older Gene clothing and shoes. After I took these pictures, I discovered she fits perfectly into the Gene fashions "Suited For Fur" and "Town and Country."
If you'd like to read my review of this doll, you can see it here. (Or just scroll down.)
On another note, I also discovered she has the exact same shade of saran hair as "Look of Love" Poppy Parker. The exact match is "Chestnut Brown" saran from dollyhair.com. The color probably has a different name on restoredoll.com, but I don't know what their name for it would be.
