Sundays are for fun stuff.
I'm getting better at taking weekends off. As I tend to be a workaholic when it comes to dolls and sewing, it's more like a busmans holiday, but at least I can spend time on my own dolls. I love my collection of 12" dollies, and have plenty of them that need re-roots and something to wear.
This one is the Audrey Hepburn Barbie. I absolutely love her face, but her hair was not only a bit crap (it is a playline doll after all) but Mattel do insist on filing their doll's heads with that disgusting sticky stuff that leaches out over time. Hence I try to reroot all my Mattel dolls.
I'm not very good with styling hair, once I've rerooted it, but I do like silky long styles with either a centre or side parting, so I'm using a two-tone brownish saran hair for this girl.
She'll get something pretty to wear too... eventually!
