I decided to use the brown fabrics after all. I went looking for more pinky/purples but I didn't see anything that suited. My husband came along as he was driving. I don't drive and have no inclination to do so....long story. He patiently followed me through two huge fabric stores. I actually came out almost empty handed. I bought 1/2 meter of lining fabric.
I'm really trying to stick to using what is in my fabric stash:)
|This is just a part of it.|
Angela suggests using an upholstery fabric for the torso. I had a piece of denim type fabric that I bought years ago as a huge remnant for a couple of dollars. It's a perfectly good piece of fabric and I didn't see anything wrong with it when I bought it. Maybe the colour wasn't selling. Who knows?
I wasn't sure if it would work because it's very heavy. Turning it right side out was a struggle. I think it was a perfect choice.
Anya is quite a tall doll with a very graceful sillouette. She will be about 22 inches when she is finished.
Angela added some embroidery stitching to the skirt edge. My next step.
Looking much better...it's starting to hang in nice folds now.
The lesson this week is pretty intense. We have to do the first stage of the head, make the arms and dress the torso. Lots to do so I better get busy:)
