I just finished making the first of the dolls from my christmas break sketching session.
I stenciled the pattern on the velvet skirt. I was so excited about this part. There were supplies to get and paint colors to pick out. The design was going to be a lot more elaborate but man, cutting through acetate with an exacto knife is tricky! I need more practice.
The rest of her turned out very close to what I’d envisioned. I love her big loopy braids although I think she might need one more braided bun. Yes, all the star wars watching is getting to me. Soon my dolls will all have queen amidala hair. Instead of my usual wool or flannel body this gal’s is heavy canvas and I love how stiff she is. I definitely want to tweak a few things on the next one but I’m very pleased with my new girl. she’s hanging with this guy.
After all the work on her outfit I’m actually most fond of what’s underneath, her striped underthings and yarn shoes.
