SFM Cloth Dolls with Attitude! NZ

Sunday, June 24, 2012

 I'm making a BIG Doll!  I have an opportunity to make a figure for Spring season.  This is the old Dressmakers dummy and I am giving it 'bones' and fleshing it out.
 Lots of padding............
 Now a Toile..........
 A fitting..........
 Back view......
She's a buxom lass - 44 - 30 - 44!  She's got a bra on under there to give her a more definitive shape. Not bad eh?  Can you see the face waiting in the background?  I didn't use it in the end. This will be a Victorian woman, possibly Steam Punk.  It's for The Oamaru Textile Exchange - an entrance eyecatcher!  Hope it all works!

Wow, what an eye-catcher !!
That's quite a job! Can't wait to see her when you are done. But how do you get her on the right spot?? That must be an awful lot of work!
Good luck!

I have a large mirror in my studio that helps me gauge the correct dimensions. As it is, this one will be larger than life- my head comes up to her shoulder! Mind you I am only five feet tall, and she will be taller yet because there will be castors on the base to move it around.

Sounds like lots of work but fun stuff. I can just see the face:) Steampunk would be so much fun.
