It took almost 2 months to finished all the designs. Its about the threads, tiny item and form of shape that make into unique design creation. Many hours testing it. The items are usually designed in Nantes France. As I know get almost all the materials to work on it. You can see on www.cocotian.com and there are articles on it. Meantime very busy espescially worked at night on photo. Most photos have to do it very late night. This little doll is dressing you just like us. Have a nice day.
