Witch with Hedgehog: Draping

I'm having fun making another Witch.   This one will hold a hedgehog.  I used a manikin  to drape the outer skirt layers (top photo). The fabric was pinned in place and sprayed with fabric relaxer, ( rubbing alcohol works also but may make the dyes run or you can steam the fabric).  Once dry and set the fabric is stitched to the doll (bottom photo). The manikin carved from balsa wood and covered with fabric was designed and made by Judee Williamson and Nicole Marble.
