WIP - Sprite sprouts wings!

After the 'rebel teen sprite' characters, I thought I would make a prettier one. Her hair and wings are pinned on and she has no undies or shoes yet, but here she is:

Her head and body are made from polyester suede, her legs are wired and fastened at the hip with button joints and she has the usual painted face and knitted wig. Her clothes are made from rescued sari silk scraps. The waistband of her skirt is embellished with beads and sequins.

This is the back view:

The back of her skirt is embellished at the waist with a fancy, beaded 'bustle'.

Here's a closeup of the wings:

The wings are wired. I made the very fine fabric on the needlepunch machine in colours to match her hair. She has very simple wings, because she is very young!

She is lovely and looks like she has the gypsy blood in her. Love her impish look.

Your dolls are really cute. Especially like the shoes in the last post even though it looks like they were a pain to make.
