Springtime Flora IS FINISHED!!!

She's finished!

I designed a custom pattern for Flora's bodice and sewed it in fabric. Then one at a time, I sewed individual silk leaves and covered the fabric, completely.

I placed silk flowers in her hair, both sewn directly onto the head. I also made a fabric head cap, sewed flowers onto that and then attached the cap onto the head. The longer flowers are with the wire stems so I poked them straight into her head.

All over her bodice, skirt and shoes, I glued different sized white crystals to represent dewdrops. They glisten all sorts of pretty colors, just like tiny droplets of water.

I also gave Flora a pretty crystal necklace. She thinks she's just stunning with it around her neck.

She's for sale, but I am concerned about shipping! I would love it if someone local bought her, that way there would be no shipping and I can also visit her; I would miss Flora. She's got personality and I smile every time I see her. But, there's another doll in the works, as we speak!

Thank you for coming to see Springtime Flora! She's flattered by your interest.

Please visit these older posts to see her from pattern to her completion.
