Hair Style – a classic Victorian (Edwardian?) Bun
Tools and materials on the photos

So here is where we left yesterday:

Off we go.
A few additional wispy ringlets on the inside of the hairline of the wig.
Time to glue to wig permanently.

2015-06-29 09.27.27 2015-06-29 09.27.27

A few more tiny pretty ringlets at the temples and at the neck.

2015-06-29 09.27.27 2015-06-29 09.27.27

Tie the hair in a ponytail.

Here are a couple of pictures missing, about the sole and the heel – the photos did not come out. Basically, draw the outline of the foot on a piece of leather, cut and glue.
To bring it all together and to hide seams, brush the shoes with a bit of brown paint.

Blouse
Tools and materials on the photos

– paper towels
cotton voile fabric (will be listed after Nov 28, 2016)
Fabritac glue
scissors
toothpicks
mini spatula
pearl microbeads for buttons
– jewelry findings for the brooch

Caution: Easy, non-professional, no-sew doll dressing.

DO NOT LET THE THE GLUE TO SOAK THROUCH THE FABRIC. That will leave stains.
Small amount of glue at a time.

Dilute fabritac with acetone (the kind sold in hardware stores, not nail polish remover) to make it thinner and easier to work with. Clean up occasional glue spots and strings with brush dipped in acetone.

Wrap the doll in a paper towel. Cut everything that is not needed.
Unwrap – this is what I got.

2015-06-29 09.27.27 2015-06-29 09.27.27
Pick the half that looks better.
Transfer on double-folded fabric and cut out.

2015-06-29 09.27.27 2015-06-29 09.27.27
Glue it on.
2015-06-29 09.27.27 2015-06-29 09.27.27
Collar and cuffs.
2015-06-29 09.27.27 2015-06-29 09.27.27
Buttons are pearl microbeads.
Brooch – a piece of an earring.

Straw hat.
No progress photos, because I was not sure my idea would work at all. But it did.
I made it out of paper, then glued rug warp 8/4 (thick cotton thread) in spiral all around. The rug warp is natural off-white color, so I bathed the hat in strong black tea which turned it yellowish. I think it looks like straw.
