Little Miss Foxy

  I'm quite certain this little Missy is dashing off to an Autumn costume party deep in the heart of a magical forest. She's expecting fairy lights, pumpkin pie, apple bobbing and plenty of dancing!

  Now listed in my Shop

  Last year I made these 'masked beauties' so am returning to that theme with Little Miss Foxy!

  There's something so gorgeous about feminine, floaty party frocks mixed with opaque stockings a woolly scarf and a winter cape - very fairytale - esque.

  Here's my initial design, some working progress pictures and my finished doll.

Autumn red merino wool hair, dress made from a scrap of vintage lace and a sheer nylon 50's scarf. Fox mask coming together with card, felt and gold thread.

A little felt green cape with embroidery silk stars, sequins and mini buttons. I've topped the fox mask off with gold sequins and some vintage feathers.

Green tippy toes with black pom pom detail.

  I'm so in love with this dolly she makes me feel so warm and Autumnal. She has such a delicate little bambi face.

  Hope everyone is enjoying October. I will be listing my new dolls as soon as the postman brings me my new Curious Pip labels.
