Dolls in progress from Adele's class

During Adele's workshop, we started some really fabulous costumes.  Here are a few:

Barbara S. started her costume with overlapping bias strips, borrowing a technique she saw in Threads magazine.  The high collar uses some of Adele's shibori pleated ribbon.

Denise D. used several of the new techniques from class, including fringed dupioni for hair, and the Texture Magic on the lower sleeves.

Katie J. is our resident dressmaker, and she made a couture dress with princess seams and pink piping along the collar and peplum!
Martha's doll is draped in a fabulous pink hand-dyed velvet.  The overcoat might be shortened to let more of the dress show.

Finally, our Julie G. tried another new technique and created a bodice of painted Textiva.  There's an awesome coat in the works that will be layered over the bodice and velvet pants.
