 The Critics: I just fell in love with this little doll – don’t ask me why…maybe that “Mona Lisa” smile?
Shashi chose to keep to clean uncluttered lines, showing off the doll as well as the dress which, though it is quite simple, is enhanced by the fabric choice.
Her skirt drapes well, and the snug bodice is in keeping with the “sculpted” look. Notice also that Shashi has disguised the shoulder joins with little straps! I also like the “tilt” to the head – gives her a bit of character!
These photos show how important it is to have good light – in most photographs you would not have been aware that the silk organza has a “shot” effect. Well done, Shashi!
