Meet Minnie

P7140014

Minnie is the doll I submitted to this year's Hoffman Challenge.  She didn't get to travel, so she's back home early.

Minnie is from my own pattern and her dress was inspired by a picture on the back of Threads Magazine.

The pattern in this year's fabric was just the right size to be a focal point on Minnie's dress.  The beadwork is pretty subtle, so you do need to look close.

It's been awhile since I finished a doll, but Minnie reminded me of how much I enjoy the process!

Love her from hair .... which is just perfect for her .... to her toes .... because they have the perfect shoes to complete the wonderful outfit.
Also, the eyes are great!

Love the "gauzy" nature and the soft colors of this doll. Different and nice!

Tried to comment earlier and had a glitch. I love the flapper dress, and the beading is perfect. Also her hair. Did you get any helpful judges' comments?
