I decided to run just enough of the neck to fit in the big hoop and make a test bust.
SO MANY FRILL SCALLOPS TO CUT OUT (I haven't even *started* cutting out the right side of the head).
Neck is too skinny for the big frilly head, but otherwise I like the way it came out. We'll see how the head assembly works out. But not tonight.
Head assembly is all hand-sewing, through four(!) thicknesses of upholstery fabric. It's... not going quickly. The head gusset is sewn in on the left side only, the chin gusset isn't even started. 😩
Also I sewed the ear for that side but am not sewing it *on* until the rest is done (because my thread already gets hung up on all the pointy bits), and I forgot to pin it in place for the picture. You'll hafta look at the previous post in this thread for that.
(also also let us all contemplate the fact that in the course of doing a "quick fabric test" I somehow decided that an OPEN MOUTH was a good idea)
