Fashion Friday - Sachi

Spring has been bizarre here in New England.  We had a snowstorm bad enough to cancel school on Monday morning and almost all of that snow had melted by afternoon.  Really weird, if you ask me.

Anyway, while I was watching the weather this week, there was mention of the cherry blossoms in Washington, DC.  And I thought, why not a cherry blossom inspired paper doll?!


The longer skirt & puffy sleeved blouse were inspired by an Alexander McQueen outfit I've seen floating around Pinterest.  I just love everything about that set!  The longer skirt here can be worn over or under the puffy sleeved blouse, but probably just underneath the other one.  I haven't tested it yet.  Also, I was too lazy to create a new hairstyle so I gave her some rad pink highlights instead. I created the sakura blossom pattern in Illustrator.  Took a couple of tries to get it right!

For those of you celebrating, have a happy Easter this weekend.  And if you're looking for an Easter project, go check out last year's Easter paper doll family.

    1. Thanks! I'll admit, it took way longer than I thought it would to make the pattern. It's only one flower scaled & repeated, but that one flower took for-ev-er!!
