This piece was made without adding anything but stuffing and paint. She turned the piece at it's widest and top-stitched the body shapes and added stuffing from behind to form the fullness.
I lied - she did add the breast. BUT all she started with was the quilted piece of muslin.
Notice the shape of the muslin piece we provided her with.
All 3 of these pieces were made with the same size and shape muslin/batting piece.
You do not need to add a backing. It is firm enough with the muslin with the sandwiched batting along with the added stuffing and clothing.
You don't have to copy this shape but I want you to notice it.
