I'm glad to say she has come back. Hopefully for good.
I started this doll in May for a challenge at the Cloth Doll Artistry Facebook group.....
I used a pattern by Teresa Pietras called "Lilly: A Fantasy Rabbit".
I have a lot of half made dolls in progress and I really should get my act together and finish them.
Then I found this small piece of sheer fabric which was the perfect colour. I couldn't believe my luck. I didn't remember using or buying this fabric ever and then I remembered. I won a blog giveaway in July 2012 and this fabric was part of that. I was just enough thank goodness.
It looks like it has a diamond in each little circle but it's an optical illusion. It has little hollow faceted depressions.
It's really neat stuff and can be cut to whatever size you need. I used some on the top of her bodice and around her sleeves.
By the way. If you ever use feathered boa for hair DO NOT glue it on. OMG what a mess. I had to take it off and redo it. I had just enough left and I sewed it on with "invisible" thread which is a real pain to use too.
I think I'll call this doll Diamond.
