"All right, Mr. Demille, I'm ready for my close up."
Her head is attached and she has new arms.
So, now it's 'dress the lovely lady' time... the fun part. Tell me what you think and which is your favorite. This will help me decide what to do. All these embellishments are just temporary... for her photo shoot.
First is the one above. It's a Nuno felted scarf that can be fitted to her. She will still need a covering for the neck (where the head was attached), a bodice or blouse, and hair.
Then there's the beautiful fur and sparkle design...
This would be another choice.
This is how she would look with some hair and lace pieces holding it in place.
And then I could go all little girl, fairy sparkle and give her satin ribbons and pretty layers of organza and tutu's underneath.
The Prospector is, for the first time in our life together, asking me when I'm going to put the sewing machine AWAY. For years he has given me a bad time about never sewing anymore and now.... he's afraid that the sewing machine is going to be a permanent fixture on the dining room table... that it's never going away.
So, what do you think? What is Amethyst telling you.? Old world "fairie" with felted clothing like the Hobbit movies, elegant and magical lady with fur or sparkle and fun?
She will have some feathers in her hair. She will have more hair that is eight inches long. She will also have wings that I have to attach to her back and make clothing allowances for. I've decided that boobs are not going to happen on this doll for personal reasons.
And guess what... I bought more patterns. I think this may be another addiction.
