We’ve introduced Marjorie and Eloise to you before. Except they weren’t naked.
I started with the base by fusing a fat quarter of fabric to a like-sized scrap of burlap left over from Adrianna’s lamp shade. I just turned the burlap over on the edge and stitched them together to finish it. I added elastic loops on the corners and a hole in the middle so that the plastic base was covered. And it’s reversible.
To make Marjorie’s new “skin”, I used some scrap knit and my serger. It took all of five minutes.
I cut two pieces of knit the same size. You want the knit to be pretty stretchy to hug the curves nicely, cutting it slightly smaller than the diameter of your form. Some spandex in the fiber content would be helpful. Here’s the shape you’re cutting, making sure the direction of the knit allows for stretching from side to side:
And here’s the shape you’re sewing. Place them right sides together and go all the way around the top and two sides. I used a serger, which made it super fast, but you can do it on a standard sewing machine using a stretch stitch. I left the bottom edge of mine unfinished, but you could easily add a casing for elastic or a drawstring if you like.
