Coraline Progress

Design work by Melissa Gaggiano.

    Thought I'd share the early progress of the Coraline doll, which my eldest asked me to make for her.
    I have done the first draft, but after cutting it out I have realised the legs will need to be widened. The legs do need to be thin to a degree. But any good doll maker will have a melt down trying turn through limbs that are just not wide enough. Believe me, I've been down that path, and I'm not goin' back [unless I'm working with super strong, super stretchy material, then maybe...].
