Progress on Shabby Chic Steampunk doll

Her head is pinned in place as is her swag.  I am pleased with her shoes though I think I need to do something to define the heels.  I got that beautiful Cluny. Lace from two shops on Etsy, Little Red Cottage and Closet Treasures. I do have lots of Cluny, but all narrower than I needed.  I really love the two different laces together.  Next is her corset and I plan to make that. Out of metal tape witha copper patina finish.  I think she will have cuffs on the sleeves out of the same.  That beautiful embroidered floral lace was the color inspiration.  It was a gift from a very talented dollmaker Tammi VanderArk.  The copper lace trim on her boots is the same lace on her bodice and swag but dyed black, then painted with copper penny metallic paint.  I hope I made enough for her wrists and neck too.  Nothing like planning ahead!  She is also very snooty!  What a mood I must have been in when I did her face!
