Jeanne - The Innkeepers Wife!

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Experience with needlesculpting - made other dolls

Pattern Description:

"Jeanne - The Innkeepers Wife!" was inspired by the character in Les Miserable's! She projects the attitude of cocky, confident, and a little bit cunning! Nothing gets past her!

This is an advanced doll pattern and if you want to develop and hone your sculpting and face colouring skills, this is an interesting way to do it!

The body is made from cotton Lycra in a nude colour, but any two way stretch fabric is good. The doll has a wire armature in a sculpted body stocking and the pattern also includes how to make a Last for the boots, a wooden stool to sit on, as well as all the clothing patterns. Many illustrations and pictures to describe how she is made.

If you have some dollmaking experience you will enjoy the challenge of making this doll, which can also be made to stand up or become any character you can think of! Even a man!
