After viewing a photo of a gal in this garb on the internet, I had to make a doll. She's a bit more "girlie" than Wendy, with a short jacket, and lace skirt. Also she wears her goggles on top of her head, so you can see her pretty eyes. The gal on the net had black hair, but Amelia said she was definitely a red head. Her hair is made of long fake fur (left over scraps from years ago when I made 20 orangutan and lion puppets for schools in Fla. Never found out why they wanted them, but was happy to do it). Those scrap pieces are handy as they make great straight hair. It is partially added in strips as well as cut off the backing and needle felted into her head (ouch).
Amelia is 22" and again "built" on my favorite disc stand with wire going up into her boots & legs.
Now I have just one more Steampunk I want to do, then I'll move on to making patterns, since there have been several requests.
Sigh..so much to do, so little time. LOL
