Carnelia Antique Lilac

Carnelia - Gallery 2010 - Antique Lilac: "Carnelia"

'via Blog this'

Costume design for art dolls'

  The wings are sewn, painted, and wired fabric; their end wires insert into narrow pockets 
on the back of the bodice. The headband is braided leather.

 The rust brocade bodice is lined, has hand embroidered edging, and laces up the front. 
The 'sleeves'  slip on and have snaps from the elbow to the wrist 
- to fit over the hand and ensure a snug fit.

 All three skirts have frayed and stained hemlines. 
The long rust and short pink skirts have 'tears' which have been sewn up with silk ribbon.  
Shells and assorted ornaments dangle from the bottom of the shortest skirt. 

Beautifully inspiring work!

Love, peace & light
