Period Dress Dolls
perioddressdolls.blogspot.com

Code:
<font style="font-style: italic; font-family: georgia; font-size: 18pt; color: #ffcc66;">Period Dress Dolls</font><br /><a style="font-style: italic; font-family: georgia; font-size: 14pt; color: #99ccff!important;" href="http://www.perioddressdolls.blogspot.com">perioddressdolls.blogspot.com</a>

If you want the blog link underlined, it would be:

Period Dress Dolls
perioddressdolls.blogspot.com


Code:
<font style="font-style: italic; font-family: georgia; font-size: 18pt; color: #ffcc66;">Period Dress Dolls</font><br /><a style="font-style: italic; text-decoration: underline; font-family: georgia; font-size: 14pt; color: #99ccff!important;" href="http://www.perioddressdolls.blogspot.com">perioddressdolls.blogspot.com</a>

Uh, I love playing with text styles!! smile

(Welcome, historical fashion fan!!)

Just let me know if you need the style tweaked. I actually really enjoy doing this.

Oh wow, thank you so much! It's amazing to me that you can do that, it looks so complex! So sorry but could I impose a bit further and ask how I could make my image smaller? As you can see I've managed to get it on there but it's HUGE LOL

p.s. Gotta love the historical fashions Heart

RE: Ok so now for a signature!


Code:
<img style="max-height: 150px; width: auto;" src="http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll27/Jennifer_Cutmore/afternoonteahistory2_zpsbg91hvcw.jpg">

Alter the the number for the image's maximum height after the term max-height as needed; I've set the width to auto-adjust based on how you change the height, to match it and to prevent the image from becoming skewed.

The size-limit for signatures here is currently 200 pixels by 800, if I'm not mistaken, so it can be helpful to put the entire thing in a container of that size...


(The background-color is pink in my example, to show the size, but it won't be in the actual code.)

As you can see, the size is a bit over (hence the bottom lines not showing,) but we can fix that without having to shrink the image any more by making the image float over to the left (and giving it a little bit of padding to avoid too much crowding) :


Final code:
Code:
<div style="max-width: 800px; max-height: 200px; overflow: auto;">
<img style="max-height: 150px; width: auto; float: left; padding: 15px;" src="http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll27/Jennifer_Cutmore/afternoonteahistory2_zpsbg91hvcw.jpg">
<font style="font-style: italic; font-family: georgia; font-size: 18pt; color: #ffcc66;">Period Dress Dolls</font><br /><a style="font-style: italic; text-decoration: underline; font-family: georgia; font-size: 14pt; color: #99ccff!important;" href="http://www.perioddressdolls.blogspot.com">perioddressdolls.blogspot.com</a></div>

RE: Ok so now for a signature!
Wow thank you very much that is seriously impressive! If I can ever return the favour please let me know! Although playing to my strengths I'd have to repay you in some way related to historical doll fashions LOL It's a bit of a niche market but you know where I am if you ever need advice about vintage lace, bonnet styles or Elizabethan dress patterns! yay

Thank you again! Heart

RE: Ok so now for a signature!
If could give me some tips on how to sew Regency-style, I might take you up on that..!

I'm planning on a custom doll of Emma Woodhouse, and she needs to be properly attired before she can start her *brilliant* matchmaking attempts. I was thinking about using Pullip Bloody Red Hood's under-dress, but it would probably be much better (and cheaper) for me just to sew it...


Do happen to have any tips or good tutorial links for that style?

RE: Ok so now for a signature!
What a lovely idea! I'm such a fan of Regency stories (Mills & Boon is my guilty pleasure and it has to be Regency!) but Jane Austen is definitely the original queen of sassy Regency girls.

Off the top of my head there's a nice regency pattern in this...
[Image: 4cdb6a016dbf5_31044n_zps3ufsovkw.jpg]
and sometimes you get free patterns on Pinterest.

Certainly most of the historical-inspired Pullips seem to favour Victorian styles but Bloody Red Hood's underdress would work. Is she in your collection? If not I'd think definitely cheaper to make your own!

For tutorials and general guides to period fashion I love http://www.fashion-era.com

I hope that helps and please do let me know how you get on! I'd love to see a picture story of Emma on her adventures smile

You're very welcome! Also I forgot, check out the Jane Austen website http://www.janeausten.co.uk I'm sure they have free patterns on there. They'll be human sized but maybe could be adapted for dollies?! Happy sewing!
