Clara and the Moon

At long last I've finally finished Clara Moonbeam! She's was the first doll I made in these limbs and then ended up getting put on the back burner, we could never actually work out on what to wear..I think in total there was about 5 outfits made till I came to the idea that this was the one and it would actually stay put.

Clara wears an off cream 1930s rayon tassels for her dress, with 1920s satin ribbon straps..a oh so sweet hand embroidered and pom pom antique trim. So fabulous for dancing. She also has a matching antique lace underwear set underneath (however you will only ever see glimpses of these as her dress is sewn on to her body).

Her shoes are black silk velvet and black suede leather soles, and each have a little cream pearl. Her seamed stockings are indeed old 1950s ones which never seemed to suit my own shade. 

Clara's headdress is made up of old 1920s millinery flowers and I've chosen a creamy green straw trim..   I adore this lady, and find her to be a right character. 


  1. Love, love,love, love! Very pleased to meet you Clara and your Mr Moon. xx

  2. I too am rather taken with Clara! She is an utter delight, it seems the more I gaze at her the more I wished she was mine! x x
