I love great dolls...and when I saw this one I thought we had to have it on the site! Here is what Sharon has to say about her new pattern:
"She’s almost 20” tall and fully sculpted, and is more about the making and sculpting of the doll, than about what she wears, so her clothes are just a stretch velvet shift, though I have included a pattern for panties! Her hat is optional. . I've used Mod Podge on her lips and eyes and given her false eyelashes for drama! She can be contemporary or old fashioned, and the sculpting can be partial or full, depending on the maker. Her limbs are button jointed, but can also be stitched in place and her high heel shoes are painted on. Krista is a doll to play around with. I used the cheapest fur fabric to show what can be done for effect, but she looks fabulous in Tibetan Wool! I've also made her in quilters calico and she looks ethereal and fairylike."
The doll has a wire armature to help her stand.
