The skirt was pieced together with an underlay of recycled tyvek (from a USPS shipping bag). I painted the inside of the bag with Lumiere turquoise acrylic and a touch of gold swirl. Four panels of a vintage French rose were added, and pink ribbon covers the join marks. Some sheer pink and silver lace creates the bottom skirt border.
Emeline’s face and hair were enhanced with markers and chalk. The legs, arms and head are attached with mini brads so that the parts are moveable. The finishing touch was the addition of tiny sequins to resemble jewels, which were glued to her hairdo, and also applied to her wrists, shoes and skirt.
