Isn’t this fabric dreamy? Paper cranes on double gauze make a perfect early summer dress.
This little girl is dressed perfectly for the summer weather we’ve been having here- you are never quite sure if you’ll be hot or need a sweater. She is prepared for a chill with a cashmere sweater.
Her toy bunny is safe in her purse.
It feels a little odd to be making a school girl dressed in wool and corduroy, with mittens and a scarf, when the calendar says June. Luckily, the weather has dipped and I was inspired to finish her up today.
Here are details of all her belongings-
Her school bag-
This is a longer and leaner version of the girl dolls I’ve been working on. The other ones are based on about 5 years old. This design is more of a 9 – 12 year old. The design is closer to the pattern I used in the past. This girl looks like a serious and smart school student- she’s all about math and graphic novels for fun. She loves school, unlike me as a kid.
Here she is without her coat. A red and white striped cashmere sweater- dreamy!
I am not usually drawn to purples but sometimes, there I go.
Here she is with her clothes off and all her things. Her body is dressed in “underwear” and her shoes and socks are all part of her legs.
Liberty cotton floral patterns- love them. I gave her a little shirt under her dress because her “underwear” was showing and I just didn’t like how that looked. She has a guaze-y silk kerchief and a wool felt purse. Her clothing looks late-Spring or Summery to me.
I have listed the other 2 girls into my Etsy shop and I hope to get this one listed by the end of today.
She has a cream cashmere sweater with tiny 3-hole glass buttons. Someone who knew those antique buttons were just my thing, sent me a string of them and Thank You again!
She is “dressed” in light pink underwear. Her other clothes are draw-string pants, a tunic/dress, and her cashmere sweater.
A Spring girl on a Spring day!
I know, about time! I started working on the girls last fall but put them away before any were finished because the shop had to be filled for the Holidays. Now finally, I have finished one. And this will be the only doll I finish in April- what a crazy month it has been!
I wanted to make a dress-able doll so I made her body look like it was already in underwear and shoes. She has corduroy pants with straps, a Liberty fabric shirt, and a cashmere sweater. What a lucky girl!
Her hair is made of mohair teddy bear fur. I love that fabric but whoa is it expensive.
She is approximately 20 inches tall.
I love this little one’s face and proportions- if I had a dog that looked like this, I’d name her Mouse.
Because even though there is snow in the forecast, it is SPRING!
But, he has his winter hat and scarf so he is prepared.
Flowers are blooming- yeah!
The purple and acid green colors pop!
