14″ Bru Jne 4 is ready to be dressed

I antiqued leather and assembled the head and body together. Here is my 14” Bru Jne 4 waiting to be dressed. I am working on her dress design now 😊


Before and after antiquing the leather

Back to work!

My summer break is over. Time to get back to work! I took a little trip to NYC during the break. My friend and I went to see a show on Broadway and a Ballet in Metropolitan opera house. But my main reason for this trip was to go to Garment district. I found a great leather shop to look for kidskin or lamb hide for doll making. I have been buying Italian leather directly from Italy but buying online without seeing actual item is sometime tricky. This time I found many Italian lamb hide with correct thickness with smooth grain on top of the amazing color. I love the cream colored lambskin I found. This shade is very close to an antique Bru body and so hard to find. It was definitely worth the trip !
