Addy's BEFOREVER Meet Hairstyle (Requested Tutorial)


This was a requested tutorial.
 

I don't know how to french braid. For those of you who don't know how either - this is how I did Addy's BF meet hairstyle on my PC Addy.


Step One: Part hair in the middle, braid each side, smoothing hair best as possible from Addy's face.


Step Two: Curl (loop) the ends of each braid in an elastic hair tie (tuck in).

Step Three: Tie a single knot with black ribbon.



Step Four: Draw one of the loose braids up to the top (opposite) where the braid begins at Addy's temple. Tuck one end (lace) of the ribbon through the front of the braid, secure it by tying the ribbon in a bow around the looped end, tucking it in behind the braid.

Step Five: Do the same on the other side, adjusting the two braids in back closing any gaps.


Step Six: (Optional) Finish off the look with Addy's braided headband from her hairstyling set, tucking it behind the front of her braids.

Addy's Meet 1/4" wide black satin ribbons are 12" long. Mine are a little longer and need trimming.


GORGEOUS!

Kirsten's School Dress



 Kirsten’s School Dress with Shawl

To stay warm on her long walk to school, Kirsten wears this outfit:
  • A red print school dress
  • Dark blue woven hair ribbons
  • A plaid shawl to wrap around her shoulders, since girls didn’t wear jackets in the 1850s

This is not Kirsten's school dress. This is an etsy dress I put her in for a feature next to this old school house.
