I am still working on more bags for the second bag post, but I finished another sewing project. That’s why you get to see lots of white dresses first.
Madame Constance’s historical inspired couture
What I had in mind when I invented that part of Esmée’s back story was something 1880 inspired. Great silhouette for the Raccoon doll body. I didn’t use a pattern or fashion pictures, just an idea I had. Which made it difficult, because I wasn’t sure about the details. I added lace, unpicked it again, started to make undergarments but decided against them, struggled with the whole thing and learned a lot in the process. I hope the result is the combination of strict and high-necked plus feminine curves and soft details I was going for. And Esmée’s hairdo is definitively contemporary tousled.
Esmée just saw the pictures of her first model job and she is excited. Madame Constance’s agency sent their design ideas for the catalog, but they didn’t pick Esmées favorite for the cover. She thinks her hair looks pretty wild in that picture, but maybe they thought it would add the modern touch. What would you have chosen?
Warning: Loads of pictures. I just couldn’t pick a favorite ;). I hope you like them.
When I took the pictures for Esmée’s introduction, I just dressed her in a white dress I already had. But it wasn’t made for Raccoon and doesn’t really fit well. I will add the pictures to this post anyway, because I like the look and you have not seen them.
