Adriana - a new mermaid

Hey there

Introducing Adriana, a new mermaid.

She is about 26 inches in length and is sitting.  I used the same size as my teenage dolls, Bex & Astrid, lengthening out the body and adding a tail.  The tail is quilted - I lightly stuffed the tail before quilting, gives a nice puffy look.  Over the stitching lines, I have glued the most gorgeous pearl and ribbon braid - just perfect!!!

The head is the same size as the Bex doll, I really like the shape.  I found the Bex arms a bit big, so have made them smaller, so is more in scale.


I am really pleased with the way she has turned out - definitely will make some more to take to shows and will write up a pattern.

Watch this space!

Hugs
