Dr Facilier How-To Tutorial

Good morning lovelies

I made Dr Facilier by altering the Arlo doll base pattern which can be found in my Etsy store here. I adjusted the pattern so that he has a more prominent chin and a longer torso, arms and legs. I will include this extended version with the original Arlo pattern in the next couple of days. Also, I will email the addition to anyone who has already purchased the pattern before the update. This post will include a guide on how to do Facilier’s hair, facial features (eyebrows, eyes, nose, moustache and teeth) and a detailed tutorial on how to make his suit and accessories. Also included is a downloadable PDF template for Dr Facilier which includes the jacket, trousers, vest, hat and mask.

NOTE: In the pictures below, I have used 2 different shades of purple because that is what I had on hand at the time.
