A Fashionable Fox Lady

I ran out of time to post all the doll before the show last weekend. I was sewing and finishing, right up to the last minute.

Her skirt is made from Laura Ashley fabric that I am sure I have had since the 70’s.

What a sweet face!

A wool sweater, little purse, and a tin cicada pin. Pretty fancy!

I have loads of new pieces to list into my etsy shop this week- kitties, fax girls, fish, and owls. I better get to work!

You can’t see in the other photos, but the sweater has a lace trim at the neckline.

Fox Girl, Vintage Liberty Dress

7-11-fox 5 - 2

Sometimes the hardest things about a blog post is figuring out a title!

This sweet plaid fox girl is wearing a cashmere sweater and a dress made from Liberty lawn. I have no idea how old the fabric is but I’d guess 60’s or 70’s. It was from my Mom’s stash and I have a good amount of it on a roll, labeled with her handwriting.

I am at the stage of my sewing where I am trying to build inventory with some of all the kinds of pieces I make, to take to San Francisco. That often means more jumping around than usual. So, even though I have 4 more foxes almost finished, sitting on my desk, I am moving on to the next thing and I will get back to them later. My studio is a CRAZY mess!

This is the last of my pre-show dolls and I am posting her last because she was the one who found a new home last Saturday.

She is a fox girl with a fox covered dress!

Now, I am working on finishing up 2 pieces (2 kitties) that I didn’t finish before the show. And also trying to deal with the chaos in my studio and maybe even get some fun and or home sewing done. I am happy to be back in the studio and not spending full days on the computer!

Fox girl 1

I was frantically finishing pieces to take to the Arts Festival last Saturday. I had a small pile of kitties and foxes that were sewed up and stuffed but not dressed. I got most of them finished by last Friday night (5 out of 7)! Only one sold so the rest will be going into my etsy shop this week. And, I will be posting them here too and the sold one will come last :-)

I think this fox girl is looking very bright and summer-y.

I like her expression which looks curious to me.

It can take a while to get everything posted into the shop. So far, I have all the owls posted. If you saw anything that I’ve posted since I got back from LA (the last month- owls, tiny worlds) that you’d be interested in purchasing, email me at mimikirchner@pobox.com and I will send you all the details.
