I know, I know - I'm meant to be packing. But I just had to do this last minute custom doll for a good friend, whose mum has a birthday tomorrow! This is her dress from many years ago (stained here and there so not worn anymore), with some beautiful folded fabric detailing. She also gave me a brooch to use somehow too.
This is definately not a child friendly doll. She has the dress collar detailing as her earrings. They are quite heavy on the felt hair. So only suitable for display purposes.
And thats the sentimental brooch in her hair.
The silky fabric was quite difficult to work with, so I used iron on interfacing. And that seemed to do the trick! It just made turning her out the right way a bit tricky.
Anyway, i'd better pack the sewing machines away tomorrow.
(or I'll go and start something else that I just have to do!)xx
