Corazon


This is not the first doll I've made since doing Jane DesRosier's (aka "Gritty Jane") cloth-and-clay doll workshop, but is the first I've made from Jane's pattern. I call her Corazon... as she was inspired by Frida Kahlo and especially by my sitting for many hours drooling over the book, Self Portrait in a Velvet Dress: Frida's Wardrobe: Fashion from the Museo Frida Kahlo

I knew I would have to give this doll a long full skirt with a deep flounce of antique lace at the hem. Aside from that, I know she doesn't resemble Frida much, except for the slight homage in the hairstyle and red rose accessory. Here are some WIP photos... am still actually adding more finishing details and getting her ready to list.

She is beautiful! I love her rick-rack collar—that is such a lovely little detail! xoxo
