Tani has an interesting figure.....the term Rubenesque comes to mind however she will have clothes eventually:)
She also has very interesting legs which are very shapely and were very difficult to stuff....getting around the sharp bend of the knee was tough. I did reduce the size of the calf by a fraction of an inch because I wasn't in love with the shape once it was stuffed.
When you are making dolls a stitch that isn't quite right can be a glaring flaw once you have turned the body part and started stuffing. Lots of time such iffy bits can be covered with clothing but in the case of the legs it wasn't an option.
I'm joining up today with The Needle & Thread Network.....come on over and visit and see the work of talented Canadian artists.
p.s. I was a featured today at Fiber Arts & Mixed Media.
