Mini Darling Michel is one of the top of the range waldorf inspired dolls created by Ciao Bimba in Bulgaria. Darling dolls are made using the best materials sourced from around Europe and take hours to create because of the needle felting technique used to create the facial features of these beautiful dolls. As a result of the hand crafting involved, every doll is truly unique.
Michel is made using cotton stockinette and has fair skin, with blue embroidered eyes and a high quality mohair weft wig which is curled and springy and adds such character. She is wearing a Liberty Tana Lawn dress made using a print called Goosey Gladrags, which is simple in construction with large armholes, gathering at the neck with ties on each side and a frill around the hem. She wears it over a cream jersey T shirt and cream bloomers with tiny white printed polka dots. On her feet she wears co-ordinating pink cord shoes with poppers.
I love her Goosey inspired bag which has a goose head and goose wings in velour. Utterly gorgeous!
