An exquisite Halloween swap gift...

I participated in my first doll Halloween swap, as you know by a previous post.
Today I received the most exquisite dolly outfit I've ever seen.
This is from Clarissa. The sewing is impeccable! The hat, dress, wings, shoes,
pumpkin and leotards are so well sewn, I can't believe it.
It's a work of art.
The hat fits Kit's head to a T. There are 2 autumn leaves, a feather, and
a bead embellishment.
Look at the beadwork on the skirt. I love the fabric too.
Here are the gorgeous wings for my Autumn fairy.
Have you ever seen anything like it?
(if you click on each photo, you will see it enlarged, and then you can view all the fine details)
Thank you SO MUCH, Clarissa! I'm thrilled that you had ME for a swap pal!
I think it's the best costume of all.

Wow, that is beautiful work! I can't even imagine how much time that must have taken to sew all those details. What talent!
Or course your Chatty Cathy is the perfect model for the outfit too!
