SORRY, I NO LONGER DO COMMISSIONS
I absolutely adored the copper, black and grey-blue colour palette of the chosen fabrics, however, the fabrics themselves were to prove a challenge, even with the precaution of iron-on interfacing!
I added some additonal ribbons and fabric as well as a Marabou feather for her Fascinator,(see below) plus beads and embroidery thread for her jewellery. Her hair is made from Perle thread DMC400.
These are some of my PARODY creations and do not impy direct correlation with any copyrighted images, characters or entities.
BRIEF: ‘Hi, I was wondering if you would consider doing a one-off cloth doll of Kathryn Hepburn, the actress, at any age… I would really appreciate your help, as living in Australia such opportunities are rare, VERY RARE. My sister's 40th is coming up in August and she adores Kathryn Hepburn. Please, please, please help...’ THE VERDICT:
" My goodness! You have outdone yourself! Kate is brilliant! The face and body and clothing are exquisite! I'm just so ecstatically happy with what you have achieved in her face. It is everything I wanted and more. BEAUTIFUL work indeed! THE EXPRESSION!!! is so like Kate Hepburn... My sister loved her doll of "Kate" and keeps her on her bedroom dresser!Storybook characters
