I made this Frida Kahlo matryoshka doll for my friend Claire, who loves Frida. It is so easy to make a recognisable Frida! I had fun making this as it was outside of my usual aesthetic. My favourite parts were doing the hair, for which I plaited some puffy wool and added three little silk roses salvaged from an old valentine's chocolate box (I knew I was saving that for a reason!), and the fabulous vintage trims I used on the body, which are from the voluminous selection over at Manto Fev, that make her look so colourful and Fridaesque!
