My Twinn "Mallory" as "Emma Woodhouse"


I bought this doll a couple of years ago because she reminded me of Jane Austen’s Emma Woodhouse, right down to her “true hazel” eyes!  I finally got around to sewing a dress for her to model.  I used a heavily modified Morrissey pattern and a vintage floral chintz cotton print.  I added a tiny metal cross to a jump ring and ran a length of organdy ribbon through and tied a bow at the back of her neck for a quick Regency style necklace.

"Special Relationship"


I’m still playing!  On this one, I used a combination of commercial prints, a little silk and a print I stamped on Kona cotton with a hand carved stamp a few years ago.

Garden Mannequin


Still playing fast and loose!  This is my interpretation of a garden mannequin.
