Last of Adele's dolls in progress

Here are all the rest of the progress pictures from Adele's workshop.  Hopefully the next meeting will have some finished dolls at show and tell!

Jude used a heavy green satin brocade to complement the pink dress.  This picture just hints at the jeweled additions to her headdress.  Later on, a matching green purse was added to the 'ensemble'.

Leslie gave her mannequin high-heeled feet before the class, and will undoubtedly show them off in fancy shoes.  The leaf motif fom the bodice is reused as hair.  She made the most of a small amount of the dark fabric to make the twisted oversleeves.

Ann used a different doll pattern as her mannequin, but the same purple-orange-green color scheme as a few others in the class.  Adele encouraged us to work with colors we usually avoided, so we had to really stretch our comfort zones.

Lee chose monotones of cream, gold, and brown, which is a different challenge.  She's really playing up the different textures (check out the gold lace headdress!), and had some faux pearls and more gold braids which will add the rich effect.

The sleeves and the center skirt panel of Andrea's dress all came from a sheer print that Barbara brought to share (thank you!).  There's a ruched orange ribbon edging the green Texture Magic upper sleeves, and a yellow ribbon rose in the hat.  The green hair is a loopy home-dec trim.
