It's been a busy few weeks. Getting very close now for the official launch and start of sales. Going through my archives, I came across some beautiful prototype versions of Anouk's Trotteur suit. For various practical and financial reasons, I went with the classic and simple black tailored suit but I thought it would be interesting to see the other ideas for the suit. There was also a prototype Of Printemps with white polka dot material and a longer length, and a different version of Capri in heavy cotton drill with appliqued panels on, quite different to the production version.
I am also considering to give some dolls individual hairstyles, so have been experimenting with curls, up dos and ponytails!
On another note, I printed a mock up of Anouk's booklet. It has turned out really great and just as I had envisaged it. I just cant wait to get the real thing in my feverish little hands!
