My doll is now painted with acrylics.
Here is a view from behind.
Here she is from head to toe.
This is a comparison in size. I enlarged my pattern by 25%. Dreadful Pauline, wearing the green dress, stands roughly ten inches tall while my Hoffman doll is approximately thirteen inches tall. It was an enjoyable experience experimenting with scale. Also my Hoffman doll is weighted with BB pellets, another first for me, so she'll sit nicely. The next step is to make a prototype costume out of muslin. I've already chosen a picture from 1879 as inspiration for her dress. The final step is to make a base for her to sit on. Still undecided on that one.
