| Herstory: ...
| The Critics: I just fell in love with this little
doll dont 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,
