Complete – Castana the Witch

Well I finally completed my doll and I decided she would be a witch.  I made her a lilac flowing robe with purple sparkles adorning its billowy skirt and a rope belt.  She has a purple satin choker with a single pearl at her throat and a beautiful ceremonial cloak made from black crushed velour with purple satin lining.  It has a draped, lined hood and round silver fasteners on the front. and a pentagram embroidered on each front panel. She wears  a traditional witch’s hat and black velvet slippers.  She is 75cms tall and her hair is raggety purple strands cut from the purple satin that lines her cloak.

Doll Making

Well ……………….. after lots of heavy duty sewing on trolley covers and leather leads…….. my hands needed a rest so I turned to my first love – doll making!   So –

Here she is.  “Jessie” in all her finery.  Jessie herself is made from heavy off white linen.  Her outfit is all shades of lilac and cream – matching underskirt in pale lilac, top skirt is soft, swirly cotton and her jacket and hat are deep purple cotton with the contrasts being made from the skirt fabric.  Her elegant scarf is from the same flowery, floaty material and her super soft shoes are faux suede.  Her facial details are hand embroidered and her hair is soft, crinkly baby wool.

Jessie stands a statuesque 75cms tall
