Milli' Cloth Dollmaking Class! Online Class by Judi Ward
Milli' is an elegant and sexy Boudoir Doll, who will take her place in your home as an exceptional decorator piece.
Milli' has some great new techniques and pattern innovations that make her fun to make and embellish.
You can use lovely laces and trims, flowers and braids for embellishment, either sewn or glued on… If you do beading, Milli' is the perfect palette for your finest work.
You can use woven fabric for her torso, like quilt fabric, satin, brocade, taffeta, etc…or…a firm knit like Doesuede, or upholstery velour. Doesuede and upholstery velour come in some great colors, and even prints. Don't use a stretchy knit for her body/torso, unless you plan to underline it with a firm, 100% cotton woven fabric.
Do use Craft Velour or Doesuede for her legs, arms, shoulder plate and head. Woven cotton can be used for the above parts, but your doll won't be as smooth or "luxurious" looking. Add classy elegance with the lace and net choices for the skirt, and the fancy fabric for the yoke of her skirt. Milli' will be one of the most beautiful and luxurious dolls you will ever make.
The dolls made in the classes that I teach here at the "Unfinished Castle" have all been superb! I know yours will be too! Also, as with all of my classes, I never do "just one thing" and there will be a little "secret" project if you desire to do it. It is a take off from a part of Milli', and is fun and quite quick too. It also makes great small gifts.
Remember....it is a secret!
Many of the skills you will learn in this class can be adapted to lots of your other doll making too.
