|I have used pale gold gouache for this little flapper's wig. I am unsure if she'll be quite as striking as a print but I may work on adding the gold detail by hand onto the actual print. Not made up my mind yet.|

Also alongside 1930's inspired Claudette in her vintage winter olympic ski suit (introduced in my last post) I have created Trudy - a 1940's glamour puss on a Winter holiday.
|Trudy and Claudette|
Trudy wears navy ski pants, vintage embroidered silk blouse and huge faux fur, broad shouldered box style 1940's jacket. Trudy also wears a black silky turban, which I have embellished with black and gold beads. She has a beautiful set of golden curls as well as a yellow sheer vintage scarf....Excuse the large glass of red wine!!!
These dolls are not quite finished yet as Trudy is going to have a clutch bag and Claudette a hat. Both dolls will also have acrylic painted on boots with pom poms.
|Trudy also has stitched on white cotton snow drops on the end of her lashes!|
Love this old 1940's photo from the Life Archives it truly inspired Trudy!

I shall be taking a week off next week to enjoy time with my family. I will still be posting snaps on Instagram and tweeting the odd tweet. Should you order from my shop you will notice I will be unable to post/ship until Monday 24th febuary.
Lots a love to one and all! xx
