Since the Garden State Dolls Artisans decided to do a stump doll costume challenge, I have been playing with a new pattern and costumes. The first one was Marie Antoinnette. This one is Madame Le Pompadour and again it is taken from a picture. I haven't decided whether or not to put this out as a pattern. Any interest? I made her wig from hair I got from Colleen (her ebay store link is on the left, OOAK Art Doll Mixed Media Supply Shop. I used Rit dye to color it. Her dress is embellished with ribbon flowers. I dyed most of the lace again using rit dye. The overlay on her under dress came as you see it - it is bright yellow on an orange net ground with some lurex. That fabric dictated her color scheme. very out of the box for me!
Here is a pic of the painting I modeled her gown after.
