One of the people who made this doll changed her pose to blowing a kiss. I just loved it and had to do one too. I thought I would make her a little more contemporary too. I had purchased this fabric quite awhile ago from Joanne's in the bargain bin and on sale of course. It is actually black flocked off white spark organza. While shopping for cotton/lycra for my doll club I found the face fabric. It is 100% cotton poplin from Anne Klein and it is fabulous to work with though a bit pricey at $14 yd! But it felt like silk and sewed like a dream. I thought too I may enter her in the 3D 2009 doll challenge but after I read the fine print, she is too big coming in at almost 22". Oh well! I left off the peplum and modified her shoes (being a "contemporary" woman she is wearing "Christian Louboutin" red sole shoes. I colored her face with chalks and pencils. I got that lovely black lace from sadiessilkenthreads.etsy.com. The fabrics for her arms and legs were black and white that I dyed ecru to blend. I also had to dye the fabric for her bloomers (OK. She's not that contemporary!) and her satin underskirt. Her hair is tibetan Lamb skin that I styled with hair spray and rollers. I must admit too I was inspired by Michelle Obama's appearance on the view when she wore the black and white dress from White House Black Market.
