Update on Fantine.
I thought she would be so much easier to make because she has less complicated items of clothing and because she is my second one but she had her own challenges.
1. The hair, she has a lot of it. It wasn't difficult to make, it just took ages.
2. The dress, I've avoided using patterns for any of these dolls and for the dress I had a really clear idea of what I wanted; a regency shape, long sleeves, removable so I can make other clothes for her. It took ages because I had to keep ripping out rows. And then it ended up too low cut so I had to add a row or two to the neckline.
I still need to make her necklace and maybe a sash for her dress. She could probably do with a bonnet of some sort too but she has so much hair it mightn't fit.
I've bought some brown wool for Cosette's hair and have worked out how to make it curly. I'll probably make her next.
