Adele, a Primitive Fluttery Creature

AdeleHeadtoToe This little gal is Adele. Like all of my dolls, she is my original design and is guaranteed one of a kind art! She is 28" tall with a wingspan of 14". She has been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. Her torso is rag-stuffed & bean filled in order to weight her little bottom. Adele has been hand-painted & sanded, top to bottom many, many times. She has been treated to a series of paint washes, making her look "oh so vintage". Adele’s arms are lightly wired allowing them to be slightly posed.

 

Adele’s face has been needle-sculpted by hand and hand-painted. Her bottom lip ‘pouts’ while her top lip is simply painted. She is heavily detailed & features pale grey-blue eyes, rosy cheeks, pink lips & detailed eyebrows. She has been painted with various mediums. Adele’s fingers have been needle-sculpted by hand. She has been sealed top to bottom with a combination of glossy & matte acrylic sealer so that she may be lightly dusted after display & kept a lifetime.

Adele sports white painted gloves & painted brown boots with striped socks in shades of light blue, black & grey.

Adele’s apron dress is made from two super cute cotton prints. The underskirt is blue with black polka dots. The over skirt is a striped, creme fabric. The skirt straps are finished with two black buttons in the front. Her blouse is made of muslin & features sleeves which are hand-gathered at the elbow. It also features a vintage blue button at the neck. Adele’s dress & blouse feature tons of hand-stitching! All visible hems have been hand-stitched (dress & sleeves), as well as the back of the blouse & collar.

AdeleWingsBack

Adele’s wings have been made of muslin, hand-quilted & then hand-painted. They have been treated to a paint wash for a lovely aged appearance & lightly sanded. They’re attached to Adele’s back with a large brown button & several strands of heavy duty thread.

Adele’s hair is brown 100% mohair. I’ve lightly glued, then carefully needle-felted it to her head. Her hair is ‘parted’ and styled into low, pigtails.

Adele is currently for sale on Ebay. She will end Sunday April 6th at 9:15 PM EST. Click here to view or bid!!

    I really like the butterfly wings on your latest dolls! I love the muted colors in the wings and in the skin and hair color of the dolls. Wonderful!
