 Fiona is ready for her first dance recital. She is 24" tall and entirely hand-stitched from 100% cotton muslin hand-dyed with walnut crystals. Her pattern was designed by my four-year-old daughter and I, and is entirely one-of-a-kind. Her features are hand-stitched from my collection of delicate vintage silk and cotton threads. Her clothes are handmade from scraps of old ballet skirts, cotton, tulle and grosgrain ribbon, and are not removeable. Her wonderful red hair is of 100% mohair. Scarlett's arms are poseable, jointed with buttons. She bends at the hip. She can certainly be played with, but may not be appropriate for smaller children.
