Nini V has arrived! / by Jonathan Hayes

Dear Nini Friends,

He's taken a little longer than I planned, but Nini V is finally complete and ready to meet you all officially. As I produced him I came to name him Jacques, but you may wish to give him a name of your own choosing. He's my first vibrant red head and my first boy available to buy. He has been made in the same manner as my previous dolls with a few minor alterations here and there in the development of my personal doll-making process.He wears a smart summer party outfit designed and handmade by me. His jacket and shorts are fully lined in a silk polka dot and are made from a heavy cotton Kendo Uniform style fabric. The jacket has button holes and pretty vintage buttons and the shorts do up with a popper and a red leather belt. His shirt is fashioned from one of my very own shirt fabrics with contrasting collar and turned cuff detail. It similarly fastens with vintage shell buttons and button holes. His underwear is made from a vintage fabric remnant that I think suits his outfit perfectly. The socks are hand knitted and the shoes made from real leather uppers and faux leather soles, with buckle fastenings.

 

If you are interested in adopting this loving fellow please do not hesitate to contact me either via email to johayes1@aol.com or via the Nini Doll Facebook page.

Many thanks for checking in and best wishes,

Jonathan
