Baby Mae - dressed OOAK doll commission

This commission was for a Poppy Parker make over with 20's style inspired by Madeleine Vionnet. Poppy got a full repaint in rich brown earthen tones, applied lashes and a classic bob hair cut. Her gown is a slinky little number in nude silk diagonally cut for a perfect flow. The gown is hand beaded in 4 colours and has a cascading back in true Madeleine Vionnet elegance. The look is finished with a classic 20's headband and a super long faux fur stole. 

I named her after a character Mae in my favourite poem: The Wild Party by Joseph Moncure March.

"A passionate flirt,
So dumb that it hurt,
And better for night than for day."
