Ugly Fabric Swap Doll

I have finished one of the three dolls I am working on. She is a doll for a ugly fabric swap hosted on the MSN group ClothDollsForFun. Today is the mail date, but my van broke down so she will have to wait until tomorrow when the van is fixed (hopefully). She is made from Arley Berryhill's Mermaid pattern that I adapted. I really love the head and hand of this pattern. Her body is made of the 'ugly' fabric sent by my partner Jerlyn and craft velour. I used markers and colored pencils on her face. Her hair is made from an idea I got from Barbara Graff's Kith and Kin pattern. I hope my partner likes her!

I love the doll! My mother would have so worn that fabric - probably in a mid 70s "Ra**h La***n by V*gue" pattern. Ugly, you say, or just an excess of personality?

I have had the pleasure of seeing this doll in person. And I was truly amazed.
