The second class offered for this project is the dollmaking class for Madame Clara Jane. This beautiful doll will be sent to you with the china painting already done, You can select your choice of eye colors and hair colors. Clara Jane is costumed in a very classic regency era style gown, with empire waist, short puffed sleeves, and long, narrow skirt. A silk band across the skirt will be elaborately embellished with interwoven laces, and hand stitched crystal beads. Ruched silk ribbons abound, decorating the skirt, and bodice of the gown. A lovely necklace will complete the ensemble. The hairstyle is elaborate, with upsweep and braid crown, and center part bangs ending in little ringlets. This is not a difficult dollmaking project, however, it does include a good bit of hand work to attach the beads and ruche the ribbon, so patience is a must!
Doll students, when registering, choose blue, brown or green eyes, and visit the tools and supplies section and look at the viscose choices available and use the color name to choose your favorite.
You can register for either class alone, or both together. However, the Niche class will be limited in size to the number of furniture sets I was able to acquire, so I expect it will fill quickly,
Niche box class will be held in late February, 2010.
Clara Jane Doll Class will follow in March 2010.
