by Karlene Atkins
Pierrette is a tribute to the French tradition of sad clowns and Karlene named her after her male counterpart, Pierrot.
Her head is made in three pieces with a seam up the center back and a flat face. Her neck ruffle is gathered lace and her costume is her body. It is made in two fabrics joined at the center front and back, and is stitch jointed at the shoulders and hips to allow her to sit in pose. Her hands are made separately with wired fingers and are poked into her costume sleeves. Her feet are also made separately and poked in at the ankles.
Plaited fine ribbons surround her face and are left to fall from a ribbon rose stitched to one side.
