Work in Progress: The Lady






























































































Here are some sneak peeks at the finished portions of my latest doll, The Lady.
Once her gloves, shoes and dress hem are complete, she will be up for sale in my Etsy shop. I'm expecting that to be in abboouuttt a week. :)

The Opulent Swan

Here is one of the pieces I've recently reworked. She was much simpler before, with just a rose in her hair but I decided to give her a decidedly more Elizabethan/ Renaissance look with an ornate neck collar and beaded hairnet.
My inspiration? I blame my recent devouring of the BBC's, "Robin Hood" as well as my summer trip to London for this :)



That bend in the beak lends itself perfectly to a regal profile, don't you think?
The body and collar are composed of 3 different types of silk.
"Charmed, I'm sure." Haha, jk.


She is available at: https://www.etsy.com/listing/168370929/the-opulent-swan

What I've Been Up To...

Okay, so it's been a long while since my last post but it's been a crazy year+ , with moves (x2), job changes, renovations (that second apt is a real fixer-upper), family trips,  events for friends, and lots of etc.

I took a significant hiatus from sewing, dolls, and posting. While I did make a few things here and there, they were mostly for personal gifts.
