Day 58: Rachel in Her Taffeta Dress and Red Felt Shoes

Day 58:  Rachel in Her Taffeta Dress and Red Felt Shoes
I finished up Rachel's shoes that go with the taffeta dress. It was either black or red, so I chose the 100% wool felt in red and used black felt for the soles and the decorative stitching. Here she is in the finished costume. She is wearing both undergarments under this dress (whew, it fit!).

Rachel is my favorite of your portrait style dolls :D
I love her facial expression and her curly hair. She is absolutely lovely!

Thank you so much! Of the smaller ones, I think she's my favorite, too. I had been working on perfecting the body pattern for quite awhile, but this was my first attempt at an all felt doll. Even though I sewed her by hand, she went together pretty quickly. Painting her face was easier than I thought it would be. Her hair is made of mohair boucle yarn. The entire thing is crocheted. Doesn't it make a glorious head of hair? I was so happy about the look and feel of it. It doesn't get messy when you play with the doll :-)
