Classy & Fabulous

"A girl shoud be two things, classy and fabulous." - Coco Chanel

I agree with Heidi that my new dolly should be named Coco if not only for her pearls but for being both classy and fabulous. So here again, is Coco:

Coco is made from scrap fabric I had in the stash and the same pattern as Charlotte Anne which I just drew up on graph paper and called it good.

One difference are the buttons are her knees. When I started the project I didn't expect Miss Coco to come out so prim and proper but to be a bit more funky and mysterious. Hence the polka dot legs. I am planning to rework my pattern to make thinner legs for a more demure doll type. To show you that Coco does have a fun side:

Check out her Rumba Panties. (thanks for that delightful term, Mom!)

Not the best of photos but you can see Coco's curls a little better here. I had fun making the hair though it is a little heavy for head. She looked like she was constantly nodding off so I gave her those sleepy eyes.

So meet Coco. I plan to make her a "mink" stole and a reticule bag. Because what classy fabulous girl wouldn't want those things?

The rumba panties are by far the best part! Accessories make the girl after all ;)
