I altered this doll for Spikefan for the TV/Movie Swap! She as so fun to make! First I used a heat gun to make dread locks, i repainted her face, and hand stitched all of her clothes which include a skirt, over skirt, blouse, corset, and shawl. I made her crab necklace out of polymer clay and repainted her boots. I will be making more!

She's lovely. Her dress is terrific and I love the little corset.

So fab!  I may have to make a life-sized skirt like that.

I love it!! You did an awesome job on the dress and face Smiley It looks like a lot of work on all the fabrics on the dress. I've tried my hand a few times at sewing by machine and by hand for my MH dolls and it is tough for things so small. I wouldn't be able to take off her ears either.... it makes her so fun Wink I like the big hoops in her ears, too!

Thank you! Sewing this tiny was a challenge and their little bodies are shaped so oddly. It was a challenge. The corset idea made things easier! I had to do everything by hand, I can't imagine how difficult it would have been to machine sew this tiny.
