She is done! The doll for my "Birthday" friend. I posted the link for the pattern last time - it makes up quickly and is a great pattern.
And here she is
This is her little face - Hubby asked why her eyes were not the same size - I said - she is primitive :). What do you think? I kind of like her expression.
I wanted to be sure that she had the little apron tied around her neck.
She has "knickers" too! My grandson and I were working in my sewing room (he likes to be crafty), he saw the pattern and asked me what knickers were. I told him that is what they used to call girls undies - well - he went home and asked Mommy if she had knickers! She called me to see what I had been teaching her son :)
GS doesn't want to "learn" how to sew - but he loves to watch me and push buttons on the machine - maybe some day - out of 5 kids none of them sew - guess it is up to the next generation.
So back to the doll - I used vintage lace for her dress and the bottom of the knickers and some vintage buttons for her earrings and up the back of the dress.
I got some "nubby" yarn for her hair, but it was too soft and I could not get it to work - so I went and got a cheap black yarn and wrapped them both. Lastly, she got the bows in her hair.
I think that she turned out really nice. I showed one of the girls at work and she fell in love - she retires the end of the month - so I am going to make her a "baby" for her retirement and make her look like Kim.
I got the fabric from my great quilt shop - Q First in Quilting - also where I go for my liberated quilt class - the dress fabric is "French General. Don't remember the other - but I really liked the combination
