After what feels like ages, my Elena of Avalor doll is finally done! For this doll I looked at Mexican circle skirts for inspiration. Her dress is made with over 14 yards of ruffled lace layered with beaded detail and rhinestones between. Her belt has a Spanish design and sits below her lace bodice. The underskirt has several floral appliques inspired by Philippine national dress, and her hair is complemented by a handmade wire flower ornament with beads and fabric flowers. Her hair was also washed of product, so it’s super soft now.
“Finding Dory is a supremely delightful sequel. Although never
challenging the original’s high standing within the Pixar pantheon, this
follow-up showcases everything the venerated animation company does so well,
providing plentiful laughs, ace action sequences and a deep emotional
wellspring.“ (Screen International - Tim Grierson)
