In my head and on the patterns, I’veÂ been calling this doll design “round bottom lady” which doesn’t sound quite nice when I post them… so then I have to come up with some other name and it never seems quite right.Â Anyway, not important.
Next!Â A Nature Guardian angel.Â I love these colors-
Some day I will find the photograph of my Mom in the caftan she made out of this crewel fabric- circa 1975.
Printed wool sweater and floral wire wings-
some side views-
and the back-
and here is the original sketch-
oh i love crewel! i have all erica wilson’s books from back then. you’ve done a beautiful thing with this fabric. i love it.
The wings are amazing!
Thanks for the photo of the sketch. I find them intrigueing, seeing how the designs change and morph.
I love her! Great use of the crewel fabric, and the colors are great. How about “long dress lady” or “little foot lady”….lol…
could she be a “wood nymph”?
i love her face! she looks ethiopian.
She’s beautiful. Your work is very inspiring!
She is gorgeous. I love her delicate feet supporting her big body. I kind of like the name Round Bottom Lady. It sounds like it could be the name of an old blues song or something.
Oh wow she is gorgeous. I love everything about her.
this lady is wonderful, the wings, the fabric, the leaves, all!!!
how wonderful!!! i love that she is “flying”
love the name – round bottom lady.
she is gorgeous!
how long does it take you to make one of these?
I think “round bottom lady” is delightful! And I swear I have some of that same fabric that my mom made a skirt out of back in the 70’s!

:):):):) and I dream with my lady…
Love everything about her. Her coloring both skin and dress and her expression:) Your post above made me laugh as that happens to me often ..distraction! At least you got some things accomplished:)
Lovely, as ever! The crewel fabric is truly the detail that makes everything else work. But I am trying to imagine a “crewel caftan”! It does not compute! You must find the photo!
