Preview photos of the new collection that I am working on. These are three of the new outfits. The outfits were not placed in any particular order but I thought you might enjoy seeing them as I am nearing the point of working on all the accessories, hats, scarves, socks, choosing footwear etc.
As you can see they are not finished yet. I was taking some photographs of the outfits to this point to enable me to decide what needs to be done for each outfit. I always find photos at an intermediate stage really help.
I thought a few closeups would be nice.
A beautiful fairisle sweater. I have used a self striping 4 ply wool for the green and a 4 ply ginger wool for the contrast. I love the effect this creates. I have teamed this with sage coloured needlecord trousers and pearl shoes. I haven't decided on the accessories yet. This is Maya. She is a lovely girl from 1970. I repainted her eyes because one was very badly faded.
A gorgeous self striping 4 ply wool sweater. Lovely stripes of marmalade, apricot, amaranth, gold and purple. Starla looks really cute in this lovely polo neck Sweater. I painted her green eyes.
This cute summer outfit is finished. It has a lovely swimming costume, cover up, patchwork bag, shorts, hat and slip on suede sandals. This is Pippy one of my lovely Kelly Wenarsky repaints. She has very vivid hair.
