Doll Club Challenge

16 Mar

 

 

 

Here’s Grace and Mary finishing their panda toys at a Doll Club meeting.

This is the Columbine doll I’m trying to make for our Spring Doll Club Challenge.

It’s from the book Commedia Dell’arte at the Court of Louis XIV

Here’s the doll body in progress, and a pattern for her dress.  Columbine is about 19.5 inches tall.

And here’s the dress – made with three kinds of silk fabric, some lace and black embroidery to simulate lace trim.  The lace apron is an important feature because the Columbine character is a lady’s maid.

Last details are her shoes, jewelry and hairdo.

      Simone – I hope you recognize the silk fabric you sent me. The two pieces are prefect for her dress.
