Whether it will work or not remains to be seen, but after the hours of work I've already put into it, I do hope so. Printing onto Habotai silk is a tricky proposition so it will probably take several attempts to get exactly right.
Still undecided about whether to include a Georgian man doll costume in the book... male costumes in such a tiny scale are beyond challenging but I feel he would complement her rather well.
I'm also undecided about whether to produce kits to accompany the book... only a handful of the featured doll projects have ever been available as kits over the years and kits are tricky to get just right as well as being extremely time consuming.
So my question is this....below is a list of doll projects which are to be included in my book, for which I haven't ever produced an accompanying kit.
Which, if any, would you like to see available as a kit?
- Jumeau-style silk and lace dress
- Elaborate Victorian bride
- Georgian lady doll
- Georgian man doll
- Regency lady doll
- French Fashion Lady
- Victorian Peddler Doll
- Vintage China Doll
- Sailor costume dolls (boy and girl)
- Red Riding Hood
- Cinderella and her Ugly Sisters
- Prince Charming
- Christmas-themed dolls
- Little Bo-Peep
- Frankendolls (dressed animal dolls)
- Automaton Music Box
- Toy Doll in Trunk
- Mignonette Doll in Presentation Box (with costumes and accessories)
