Real retro

There is a fashion at the moment for retro style fabrics, but this is the real thing! It’s interesting that you can still tell an original 70’s fabric from a retro 2010’s one.

There has been some interest expressed in knowing how to dress peg dolls, so I thought that with every doll I post I would try to explain how it is made, so if you should want to have a go you can.

 This doll is simply made: Her arms actually go through a hole in the peg and have been wrapped along with the body, with a white nylon type ribbon. The skirt is a cone shape with a wide ribbon sewn around the bottom and an orange ribbon tied round the peg to define the waist. The hat is simply a circle of matching fabric with the edges finsihed and a feather sewn into the top.

Her face is drawn on and her hair is wool wrapped around in a circle.

Sounds quite easy really!
