CHEMISE FITTING

The plans for this doll is a Renaissance style costume with a full skirt and possible bustier. I made a period chemise for the doll but after trying it on her, I realized it will be too bulky under her costume. I find it hard not to sew a complete costume including all the "proper" underpinnings.

BACK TO DOLL MAKING

During the past summer months I've focused most of my energy doing yard work and gardening. Now that the weather is cooler it's time to get back to doll making.

Even though I have two unfinished doll projects, I started another cloth doll. I need to finish her face coloring and then on to attach her arms. More than likely she will become a beautiful Witch with black hair and a Medieval Gown or a dress and cape.
