Some years ago, one of my sisters was making porcelain half dolls and I started off making them into tassels.
Then I decided to work out a skirt in the manner of a pin cushion. I had great plans to market the design, but nothing came of it. I recently came across a lovely lady called Maureen Greeson, who collects half dolls, and have given her the pattern where I am sure it will be more useful than sitting in the box on my shelf.
You can find her blog at http://www.maureensvintageacquisitions.blogspot.com.au/2014_11_01_archive.htm
where she has a link to the pattern.
Maureen has a wonderful collection of beautiful vintage half dolls, and also a tutorial for a skirt she has made as a base for a lovely flounced overskirt.
Pay a visit to Maureens blog because she also does crazy quilting and has lots of eye candy
