Juliette is a lovely doll with a unique construction.  She stands approximately 17" tall and has a soft sculpted face formed from knit fabric.  Her torso is skinned in knit fabric to match the face fabric and her breasts are implanted beneath the knit skin to create a delicate d├ęcolletage.  The lower part of the body is constructed of 2 stiff fabric panels open from the bottom and to allow the skirt to open up to hold her weight and to stand.  She sits on a weighted bag with half shoes poking out the bottom of the skirt.

Students will lean full facial soft sculpting and coloration,   simple wired hands, unique body construction as described, costume techniques to include the use of a smocking pleater to create the lovely pleated ruffle used at the bottom of her skirt.
