This doll called Eleanor is the time keeper. For her posture she needed to be sitting down and the clock looked like the ideal chair and inspiration for the title …Her costume was made totally intuitively and became a figure from Elisabethan era. I made her hat scrunching up the soft material used for her flounce .I added a black brooch to her hat which made me think of the shape of a feather. Her shoes are made of black suede material with buckles/buttons with matching colours. Her trousers are very light made from a black silk scarf.
When I started this doll, I did not know it would become a historical figure. The doll has a life of its own !
