I worked so hard yesterday on the half doll. I finished the stitching at 11 last night. She's done!
Now for the finishing. I have many cuts of dupioni silk. Shelley and I went to Delectable Mountain Fabrics a couple years ago and got a treasure trove of silks. Then BFF and I have gone to this one fabric outlet store near Minneapolis that has an amazing selection of silks. A few years ago I also went to a great fabric store near Union Square in San Francisco, Britex. So now that I need some silk dupioni, I had to go find my bags of stuff, a mining expedition, in my sewing room closet. I found some really pretty cuts of silk and some cuts I didn't even remember that I have.
So many choices, how do I decide? I especially like the silks with designs in them.
I cut a piece to line the stitching. You won't see it so it doesn't matter about the color. I like how the purple brings out the purple in the stitching but it doesn't go well with the doll coloring. Now, I really like the thin blue stripe. We'll see. . .
I'll show you how everything turns out tomorrow.
