Day 55: Victorian Doll Ornament 003

Day 55:  Victorian Doll Ornament 003
Victorian Doll Ornament is all cloth with a cloth over paperclay head, neck and shoulderplate. Icicle style body and legs with jointed arms. She is 8 1/2" tall.

Stockings and shoes are painted on; remaining garments (pantaloons, petticoat, dress, pinafore) are fitted and sewn to the doll. Undergarments are cotton batiste, trimmed in white lace.

Her gown is a gorgeous metallic dress fabric that looks like liquid pewter. Her pinafore is a delicate white on white floral sheer with a pleated white trim. Satin ribbon in a shade called "Sweet Nectar" trims the pinafore.

Silk florals and lace are fashioned into a large tussie-mussie which is sewn in place (not glued).

Her hair is a strawberry blonde Tibetan lamb locks; sewn into wefts and glued to her scalp. There's 20" of weft on her little head; and it's one glorious head of hair!

I've still got to give her a hair bow and figure exactly where I'm going to put the hanging loop. Then she will be complete.
