Making those legs was one of my highlights for the year. But then I need to get a life.

For Charlie Chaplin you will need lots of dark timber but Marilyn is much brighter.

I used two different light timbers for her dress. One for the lining and one for the outside material.

Her tanned legs contrast nicely with the dress material.

Although Marilyn was a blonde I gave her slightly darker hair to try and balance that light dress.

This comprehensive, full size, pattern will take you step by step through the construction process.
