Molds Used
Stacy Hofman 'Rose' Head
Parker Levi - 1/2 Feet
Dawn Adam - hands

**NOTE all pieces were manipulated in greenware stage, and torso poured in white.

I cut off back half of head for high head dress placement.

Step 1.  Shoes.  Paint lightly with color desired, add a tiny sprinkling of glitter, and when dry go over top with two light coats of nail polish.

Expanded directions are given in 10/28 FF

Step 2.  Underclothing.
Cut small rectangle (2) from material.  Ours was 3"x2" - yours may vary.   Glue into tube, slide up dolls leg and sew shut.  Cut larger rectangle out for inside petticoat, gather top and slide on doll.  

Gather this UNDER fimo disk!

Step 3.  Frame.   In order to achieve that nice wide skirt, simply shape piece of fimo (oblong) with slit in center to slide down over pantaloons.  This will  hold our our skirt in place while creating.  I baked mine at 275 for 30 minutes.

Step 4.  Under skirt. Cut rectangle out of shiny material (approx 10 x 8 inches -- your doll height might be different so cut from paper towel first).  Put a tiny slit in top so you can slide over pipecleaner armature, gather if needed to fit tight.  Next drape over fimo form and cut off excess laying on ground.  Spray with fabric stiffener to get a nice stiff petticoat.

Step 5.  Over skirt.  Cut out two triangles, gluing silver lace along front side (as indicated on pattern).  Glue silver trim over top of raw edge.  

Gather top of triangle (shown on pattern), and sew on side of gown.

Step 6.  Bodice.   Cut small rectangle out from shiny material, wrapping around torso and making edges meet in front.  This raw edge will be covered by stomacher.

Step 7.  Stomacher.  Cut triangle pattern piece from cardboard, glue on shiny material.  Next ruffle silver lace behind, and cover raw edges with trim.  Let dry.  Wrap silver piece of trim around waist for belt.  

Glue on stomacher and let dry.  Cut two sleeve pattern pieces (rectangles) from shiny material, make tubes, slide up arms and tie shut.  Now glue silver trim over bodice top, around arms, and to back.

Step 8.  Decoration.   Unravel part of silver trim, and glue rhinestones on for necklace.  At this point you can glue beads, rhinestones whatever you wish on to decorate.  The holes in the silver trim give excellent opportunity to do massive decoration.

Wigging.   Shape fimo cone as shown, and glue on head, pressing into indent (manipulated porcelain piece) after baking.

Pleat white hair in 1" pleated, let dry and spread light glue of tacky glue on hair line.  When tacky, gently glue on hair up one side and down another.

Decorate with tendrils, curls and bows as desired.  For more detailed wigging, click to our Wigging FF's.
