Introducing my first poppet. (First jointed doll ever): Autumn

Before she got her hair put on.

her most autumny outfit with head band and shoes

another autumn-esque dress

and her fuzzy pink jacket


fancy dress with bloomers and ballet shoes

and a sundress made from a fancy blouse sleeve

This was so fun. She's made from the elenor pattern (thanks Craftewoman!) with felted cashmere.  Her clothes are scraps I had lying around after making my summer wardrobe from reconstructed thrift store finds and clearing my closet of all that is not so fabulous.  I can hardly stop making clothes for her.

She's cute! I love her hair! Great work. Cheesy

Be what you would seem to be - or, if you'd like it put more simply - never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.

I love her Rubenesque figure.  Her wardrobe is great and I love her red shoes.

My world is an unusual one.

Eliea -I just used regular craft store polyfill to stuff her.

The fabric is still quite stretchy which led to her ruben-esque figure.

Thanks for all your wonderful comments!
