I made a few quicky pictures of my fashion. She is evolving steadily. I have her arms ready as well as Henry's arms, but haven't sewed them on yet. There is always some little something to hold you off a little bit longer before getting everything in place. Look at her hair, isn't it just beautiful. I don't take any credit for that. I bought her hair. It's human and jet black, long and silky. I never had hair as pretty as this. My husband likes it down, but I still am hoping for a fancier hair do. she has delicate hands with stitched fingers, but they are not like an Izannah doll. I can't describe them, but you will see them soon enough. they are very dainty, but not tiny. She has an hour glass figure, big heavy upper legs, and fat shorter feet. She will need hefty shoes for them. I have decided on cream colored gauzy fabric for the underslip and vintage cream to yellowish dotted swiss lace fabric. this particular fabric is hard to find, but I lucked up on a bunch of it awhile back. It was in huge curtain panels. I could never have bought enough fabric or found this on a bolt anywhere. Anyway, this is the plan. I have been looking for patterns, but nothing is anywhere near as big or fat in the chest and shoulderplate as she is. I'll keep looking though. I'm not sure I could, without tons of trouble, change the pattern to fit her from what it is originally. Henry is telling me that he is in the picture too. He also is coming along very well. His arms will be finished soon, and on to making him some clothes too. He is a sweet boy, but a little more grown up than I planned. Isn't that the way of doll making, or is it not enough planning or experience on my part to know how and what I need to do to get just the right look. I don't think I will ever have that kind of experience, and maybe it's better. My mistakes brings good things sometimes too. Have a happy doll making weekend and we will be posting some pictures of the lake and some pictures of ourselves ( ouch ) on my next post.
