She is finally done. It was a lot of fun creating her but it took several months. She sat naked for more than a month. Gathering the materials for her outfit took more time than expected. The original plan was purple velveteen for her vest and waistband. Did you know there are dozens of shades of purple and some clash with others? Finally, I found some cotton with pretty sparkly glitter. It is difficult to see in the photo but looks just right in person. Then finding the right shade of chiffon to match took forever! Thank goodness for etsy! My sister-in-law came through with the bottle. It was a black vase with yellow flowers. Hubby painted it gold and made a top. I painted the flowers purple. So the vision in my head of a genie elephant has come to life(so to speak). Hope you like her!
