Casket Toys Part III

The doll version of Time began as a stuffed body of the figure that has a wire armature inside. Mr Peacock is not sure what to make of him.

The wings for Time have a wire armature and the feathers are stitched in two layers. One layer is gold gilt silk twist and the other is red gilt silk twist.

Here Time's head and legs have been covered with lacet. The other pieces are assembled waiting to be attached.

The feather strips are lacet or soutashe with buttonhole infill.

Here is a close-up of Once's hat and the feather plume waiting to be sewn in place.

This is how I made Once's jacket. A lacet base filled in with 2 shades of green buttonhole stitches.

Another jacket. It started as more of a vest. I then decided to add the sleeves. I love the paisley like design on the front of the jacket.

The apron in progress.
