Two steps forward one step back

I made some progress with this doll of mine. I think she will be ok once I paint her. I made her arms and legs as well but I think I will have to make them again as I feel they are rather short. I like long limbs for my dolls so I have got to do that and then look for a nice fabric for her body.

 I the meantime I cannot believe that I spent so much of time beading this skirt and the beading is not even nice. Although I like the fabric a lot, I decided enough is enough and off with the skirt lol! She looks a bit decent now. Shall finish her soon I hope.

I have to agree with everyone else, I think the skirt looks lovely! But you know best what you want for her. Maybe you can use it on another doll?
Your sculpting is beautiful! I'm anxious to see this one come to life!
