Josefina in the woods

I rarely take pictures of my dolls in American Girl brand outfits. I have some from before the sewing year(s), but I mostly take photos of the stuff I make. I took this shoot the other day of my favorite historical outfit on my favorite historical doll. Thought I would share all my favorites here since most of these will probably never make it to Instagram.  I made this doll swing 2 weeks ago, and I'm much fun photographing it. Every doll looks so sweet swinging in the woods.  Sorry that this post is kinda short, but I wanted to get something up. I've had a pretty busy last week (concerts, auditions, school, etc.), so I haven't had the time for a big blog post. I just need to plan better! I promise that there will be a better one in the future. See you next time! Edit: I also just updated the "All My Dolls" Page with new picture if you want to check it out!

Sew Sophie, what happened this month?

Gosh April went fast too! I've been so busy with school, bass, etc. that I haven't really posted much on the blog! I'm so sorry! I promise I'll be better at posting during the summer.

AG News
Z Yang released this month! I'm not getting her (she looks a lot like Einsley/ #30), but I love her story. Her camera set is so cute, but I probably won't get it.

Yet again I only released one pattern this month. 😧 I could make up some excuses, but I shouldn't. I'm really proud of the pattern I did release though.
I have been doing a lot of sewing this month, just like every month. I'm thinking of also doing a monthly "sewing roundup" where I show you everything I made that month. Let me know if that's something you guys would like to see.

Blog Updates
This month I did something a bit different. Isla was DOTM over on Dolls N' All, and it was pretty fun. You can check out Isla's posts here.
I didn't post too much on this blog thoug…

Camera: 1 month update

This post is going to talk about my experience so far using a camera. As most of you know, I was an iPhone only photographer until March 19th, 2017. This post is going to show you some of my favorite photos I have taken, along with which day I took them. I'm going to share with you some things I have learned along the way. Also this is going to be a really long post because of the amount of pictures! Sorry in advance! Also the counting is just the day in reference to the 30 days, so I didn't take pictures everyday. There is also a biggish gap from when I went on vacation. I took non AG photos which I didn't include in this post. 
Day 1 (March 19th)

This first day was all about experimenting. I tried outdoor and indoor shoots. This was super fun and definitely great for me to try out the basics.
Day 2 (March 20th) 
On this day, I started experimenting with the manual focus. I kinda jumped into the lake head first with this, but the results were amazing. I also played around …
