| The Critics: Second year and making doll patterns?
What immediately struck me was
those lovely faces
thick lashes, full lips, button nose and
(notice how many of us avoid giving our dolls ears?)
I would so much have liked to
have been able to see the beading detail on Flirty the whole
of the fringed skirt appears to be beaded, as well as having a fall of bead
fringe from the front neckline
This is another case where two larger
photos, one with a small inset of the face, would have displayed her to so much
Flo, on the other hand, is a
much clearer picture and one can see Kathy has got a really nice feel of
movement in the arms and legs however, it will help to bend the armature
on Flo a little more, so that her ankle is directly in line with the nape of
her neck she is not quite as finely balanced as Flirty.
The gloves and crossed-strap
high heels are really cute, as is the rolled hair style
just see this doll in a sweetheart-neckline New Look outfit too!
While not being in the
Erté mould, they definitely evoke the Roaring Twenties very
nicely done, Kathy!
