The Diva Wore Pencil Pleats...

I had another idea for a doll.  The construction was much the same as St. Bernadette, except the armature and head were fashioned out of aluminum foil.

Pencil Pleats made from carpenter's pencils.

She has extremely long legs!

Beautiful work. I love the idea of extra long legs. If my legs were 6" longer, I think my weight would be closer to what it should be.
