I am frantically trying to finish this doll. It is for a lady whom I met in one of the textile courses I attended. She just wouldn't take no for an answer and wanted me to make a doll for her. Now I have never done this sort of thing before simply because I am not happy making a doll for someone I don't know very well because I don't know what their tastes and it sort of limits my creativity. The moment someone wants to buy things my mind goes into a creative block LOL! So even though I had three months to complete her I am only making her now just when the deadline is approaching. I seem to do that always. LOL! I only hope she will like her as she didn't even tell me what colour or size doll she wanted. That is in a way good as I simply can't work to certain rules. So here she is half done and I have to complete her by next week!! I only hope she will like her. Anyway if she doesn't I will gladly keep her tee... hee.. as I find hard to part with my dolls.
I got some of the fabrics for her dress from India . The top skirt is silk organza in moss green solder burnt and the under skirt is some lovely fabric I got from Paris when I went there last year. It is a lovely lacey shimmery goldie brown colour the picture does not show the true beauty of it. I seem to be gravitating towards green and red colours lately. Wonder what colour the next one will be. I have made enough in green now I think.
