Dressing a Mannequin

If you follow my blog you remember Vanessa, an Edwardian doll in her age, whose feet I tried to fix. She is still undressed and her shoes are in the process. The reason why it takes so slow is that I tried to find fabric for her dress that will fit the atmosphere of the roombox. I think I found what I've been looking for and probably this weekend I will work on dressing Vanessa.

Last weeks I practiced on dressing a mannequin in 1/12th scale. The mannequin you see is dressed with white dress made from silk. It can be an evening dress or a wedding dress if to add veil to it. I don't have a place for it. I am just practicing on dressing mannequins before to put my hands on Vanessa.




I made roses and bows from ribbon silk

I also added some embroidery on the skirt (white embroidery), it is hard to see on the picture, but it is there above the bows ...

and on the sleeves


Have a great weekend,

Natalia

Hi Natalia! This dress is gorgeous, awesome and guess what......I DID see the embroidery just above the bows. It is so delicate. Now I am very curious to see the "real" dress for your doll. That promises a lot, because you were "just practising" on the mannquin ;)!!
Hugs, Ilona

la alfombra donde resposa bajo el vestido de novia es una preciosidad. Tambien bordo alfombras para casas de muñecas, si quieres verlas, te invito a visitar mi blog.

Tienes unos trabajos a punto de cruz verdaderamente increíbles.
