I have been working on a doll for my grand-niece (my Grand-Aunt Bess made one for me) and when I had finished constructing her, I knew she must be a ballerina with the long arms and legs that she had. Here she is dressed for the recital in her tutu and ballet shoes. I may add some ribbon and flowers.
Here she is before I added her tutu.
Here she is with her tutu.
She is ready for her close up. She’s a bit cross-eyed but cute, I think. Her features are embroidered except for her eyebrows and rosy cheeks which I put on with fabric markers.
