MORE CHRISTMAS LOOT!
Presenting MARINA! made from a piece of silk that I hand dyed a couple years ago. I started to throw it away as one of my failures...NOT! That silk was splotched with green dye and my daughter Laura fell in love with it...soooooo, I decided to make the next "Pumpkin" doll - a great Christmas present! She was "over the moon" about her doll. Yep, used Claire Pruitt's Penny Doll pattern again! Marina's bodice is of a lavendar silk dupioni; her legs/boots - a striped silk. The bloomers are made from a lime green silk charmeuse and the sleeves and over-skirt is from a decorated lavendar organza. Her shoes were first painted with black acrylic paint and then topped with "sparkle purple"! Her vest - a crazy print. I topped her off with some real hair...surprised? I think not...love the real hair!
