The Stockinets are a series of dolls that I made to explore the range of what I could do with aluminum armature wire and stockinette knit fabric for the doll skin. I gave myself some rules. All the dolls had to have the similar armatures. The "skin" of the doll had to be made from and defined by a stuffed and sewn stockinette form. All of the dolls had to be free standing. I gave myself complete freedom of design for the head, hair and costuming. This project took me a year and a half. It was SO MUCH FUN and I learned a lot. Have a look....
