Out of hiding

DIP - crash test dollUmmm… the doll is coming out of hiding, not me! Remember this one? The crash test daughter doll? My daughter wants me to finish her so she can have it. I never did anything with it because I didn’t like how high the eyes were – there’s no forehead on this girl! I have to figure out how to make a top for her – this is just the band from the bottom of the skirt – I had made it and then shortened it. I am so clueless when it comes to pattern drafting for clothing, sigh. I really really need a class on how to do this.

    hah! Today I wanted to use my machine…and I had to look for the booklet that tells me how to thread a bobbin….sigh…. wish I had learned how to sew as a kid.
    I wonder if you pile up some of her “hair”…sort of in the middle of her head a bit..or put on a little hat or bow or something? it might detract from the eye placement…? although, I don’t really think they look out of whack or anything…

    You know Jude, I WONDERED whatever happened to this doll! I’ll be interested to see how you finish her.

    About time too. I meant to ask you sometime ago about this doll but never got round to it. Glad to know that you are going to finish her.

  4. Yay, she’s looking great! The bruises are pretty doggone authentic looking. I always wondered whatever happened to this doll. I thought it was such an interesting subject to make. Of course enough time has passed that I’d imagine both you and your daughter can joke a bit about the originating accident. Will the doll be in a car or just have a steering wheel (and perhaps torn off steering column)?

    Judi,
    I thknk she looks great nice looking legs and shoes. Her face is ok as is I think. As for clothes just cut pieces out and stitch them to the doll easy peasy. I think the way you show her here is a pretty good costume.
