I just finished the boring part of this exercise: turning and stuffing. It doesn't really take that long, it's just so...boring, probably because it's the least creative part of dollmaking. Maybe I'll outsource that one day when I can sell my dolls for hundreds of dollars (hahaha).
Anyway, here's the body. I forgot to photograph the back, might have to add a pic later to show the arms (they're just one long sausage that I stuff and then hand-sew onto the back). The legs are done in the same way, stuffed first and then sewn into the body. As you can imagine, turning these little limbs can be tricky, but my long tweezers and chopstick do the trick allright. (I refuse to buy the medical equipment for tuning that real dollmakers use, I've got everything I need!) I've had to start reinforcing the neck with pipe cleaners, because the hair can be too heavy and make the head look floppy.
I had a look at possible hair, but I won't make a decision until she's dressed. Here are some hairstyles, I quite like the purple and brown hair.
