Stitch in Time–part 2

Here are the next steps of her ladyship. Things are pinned in place for now just so I can make sure  of how things are positioned. Her arms will change slightly, I think they’ll come up a little higher.

The fur around the bottom is rabbit. My DH brought it back from the far east years ago. I don’t search out real fur, but I seem to get gifts of it, so I will use it. The bottom of the base wasn’t covered, but I had extra length of cord, so I kept going and covered the bottom as well.

The trim at her neck is made with a narrow bronze coloured organza ribbon with the gold metallic/burgundy cording trim on top. Colleen used the prettiest tiny trim on hers, but this is what I came up with. I think the subtle sparkle and touch of colour worked out well. It stands out nicely rather than other things I tried that just blended into the dress and you couldn’t see the trim. The beading is actually straight in real life but of course not in the picture. Now I know why professional photographers get paid so well, they watch for these little things.

I found a different Celtic pattern to use for the cross stitch element that the doll will be holding, you’ll see that at the end. So far so good…Off to work, more soon.
