 Medium: Cloth over armature
 Description: Tall, slim 21" doll. The most challenging part was the gold buttons down the front and down both arms

 Inspirations: The doll is fashioned after a sculpture of the 1920s era.
 Herstory: ...
 The Critics: What an elegant lady she is! A deceptively simple monochromatic outfit from her beaded skullcap to those dainty sandals.
Doey has shaped the dress using two long seams down the back – it is easy to develop wrinkles on a close-fitting outfit like this. She has used the shoulder of the sleeve to disguise the join of arm to torso. We have to know more about the buttons…do tell!
There isn’t a close-up of the face, but what one can see is most appealing. I also liked the draped silk ribbon that carries the eye down the doll to her feet.
A particularly nice choice of base – so often this is an afterthought, but it is perfect for Estelle.
People’s Choice? Of course it was!! Congratulations Doey!
