After having lost the Volks lottery for the A&P outfit last month, I pulled myself up and made the pattern included with Volume 8 of DollyBird for the Alice & the Pirates dress. If I weren’t so overwhelmed this month I’d make all three patterns… but I have stuff to do! Lulu looks fantastic, don’t she? They didn’t include the hat pattern, so I had to figure that one out myself. Oy! I used inkjet decals for dark fabric to get the patterns on the dress. It turned out really well, I think!
I also had the very great fortune to get invited to have dinner with the Isobe’s of Baby, the Stars Shine Bright here in San Francisco a few weeks ago. I’ll make more hay about that at a later date.
I just want to say though, that VIZ Media/VIZ Pictures, the lovely folks who hosted the dinner, will be building and opening the VIZ J-Pop Center in San Francisco’s Japan Town some time in 2008. Including a small theater featuring anime and Japanese live action films. It sounds like it will be all kinds of amazing!
