L'Amour, l'amour . . .

That is one of the songs that Carmen sings in the opera bearing her name.  And here she is . . .

For those that read my question of a couple of weeks ago, you can see I went with the hair all down - and mildly tamed!

Carmen is wearing two ruffled petticoats.  I really gave my ruffler attachment a workout with these!  Yes, I'm still loving that toy!!

Carmen was made using Arley Berryhill's Le Femme pattern.  She is actually one of my UFOs, since I made her for a class I took from Arley several years ago (six?  seven?).  This pattern is one that my doll club chose to make this year and I decided now was the time to finally get busy and finish this doll!

Now, Carmen and Aengus are off to the State Fair.  Wish them luck!  (Don't they make a pair?)

Lovely!

Carmen is gorgeous! Love the pose with the skirt in one hand and a rose in the other.

Those two are going to be excellent competitors at the fair. They are clearly prize-winning material.

She's beautiful, Liz! Really. Good luck at the fair. I can't imagine anything better than either one of these people.

She's lovely! I don't know which bit I like best, her corset or her petticoats. I have to get one of those rufflers!
