italian outfit

"La mi' cocca Deruta®" is a creation by Anna Lisa Piccioni of  "Le Antiche Fuseruole Deruta" (Deruta Majolica Beads, there's a site in English: http://www.puntiantichi.com/deruta-majolica-beads-and-buttons-the-fuseruola-an-antique-umbrian-token-of-love-in-majolica-from-deruta/ ).


Their slogan is: "She wears handmade Italian dresses only"! 

Last week I went to Zagarolo, near Rome, where there was a lace makers' meeting and there I bought the kit to make my own doll. Her head is handmade and hand painted, it is one of a kind, I struggled for choosing one head in the pile, they're all so pretty!



I first saw these dolls in the magazine "Giuliana Ricama", then I found one of them in the blog by Sabrina, here: http://macramemodena.blogspot.it/2015/11/ancora-una-bella-collaborazione-la-mi.html. Sabrina designed the red and blue dress. Lovely, isn't it!

The skirt is an adaptation of an edging from "Il chiacchierino - Selezione TRICOT - 1990", the top is just block tatting.

Nasvidenje.

    1. Ty! Of course she has a little bag, handmade and painted, the text is "la mi' cocca Deruta", the translation that can give a similar meaning for "cocca" is daddy's girl, but in this case not just daddy's. Oh gosh! I'll never master English!
