Summer Activities for Margot and Sheila
I bought a few new prismacolor pencils, so I feel more able on the handcoloring these days and thought I'd share a colored version of the newest outfits for Margot and Sheila.

The painting outfit is pretty much exactly what I wear when I paint, except my white collared shirt is not quite so pretty anymore. One time I wore my painting clothes out for a margarita lunch with my boss at the art gallery and a lady actually stopped and told me how much she liked my outfit. I don't think she was being facetious, which made me think I could really be on to something. But I haven't painted much lately, so that particular fashion line has yet to be realized.
The bathing suit was a challenge, given that the original dolls are wearing dresses. The solution was to add on a bunch of stuff for the doll to carry, which somehow doesn't make going to the beach look all that relaxing. Oh well. The next dolls will be in their skivvies.
