girl with fish pinafore

another doll inspired by mermaids and Heather Ross fabric.

This was an interesting doll to work on. I put her body together before I received my Heather Ross fabric in the mail. When the fabric arrived, I realized that the color choices I’d made were not especially good for what I was hoping to do. If you look back at the wip post, you can see that originally I had thought about using different fabrics. As I was playing around, I pulled out my bag of orange cashmere pieces. I set aside a dark orange-red for this doll and also pulled out the bright orange to use on another doll. Well, the bright orange ended up on this little dear. Never, in my rational mind, would I have thought these colors could work together- but in the end, I couldn’t pull them apart!

Her hair is wool boucle fabric hair and the buns are made of wool felt balls. I love her face.

Here are all her outfit pieces- skirt, pinafore and vest.

And, the 2 girls together.

  1. your color choices remind me of liz claiborne’s new line of clothes designed with Isaac Mizrahi from this month’s O mag.
    Oh, i’m seeing the 60’s again. lovely, lovely to see this doll.

  2. I love pinafores, makes me very nostalgic of my school uniform days and my pinnies. (Younger self, not even believing that could ever say such a thing) And that vest (a cuff?) brilliant!
