I spent last weekend at Threads and Beds Retreat Center with some dolly friends. We were delighted to have Barbara Schoenoff there to teach us her new doll pattern: January Girl. She is a cloth doll that has painted and varnished arms, legs and head so that she resembles a miniature vintage resin boudoir doll. Everyone chose different fabrics so every new painted lady has a different personality. I chose a bright happy pink and fuchsia print that has some yellow accents. I couldn't find any lace to match so I dyed some when I got back home. I used yellow and pink tulle layered together to use as additional trim. She is complete with lacy petticoat and pantaloons. I used braided jute for her hair and hat. Both are painted and varnished. Her sleeve caps are adorned with a piece of the skirt fabric that has been "fussy cut" then trimmed with beads. Her bodice is also trimmed with beads. She is such a little darling and looks oh so French that I named her Ma Petit Cheri (translated: My Little Darling) Enjoy!!
