I shaped the bottom of her body like a square cushion, resting on the cushion-bustle for her 'Marie Antonette' style skirt. Her arms were made to resemble combinations of round and bolster-shaped cushions, whilst her legs were made to resemble a combination of pretty, frilly square and bolster boudoir cushions. The whole effect was to look like a pile of cushions and yet look like a complete doll. I made corkscrew curls to create her hair and she is further embellished with beads, fringes and trim. The finishing touch was her rather fun Cavalier style hat made using the selvedge trim from the fabric.
