"Izzy" finished!


In between helping my grand-daughter with a school project, I managed to finish dressing my 'Izannah Walker Homage' doll. I was going to use some old tatted lace that I know I have here somewhere, but in the end I decided it wasn't worth wasting a day trying to find it in the midden-pile that is my studio! But I am quite happy with the little bit of dark red embroidery - I think it is quite in keeping with the fairly plain way that most of these dolls seem to have been dressed originally. Underneath, she has long drawers and a petticoat trimmed with hand-made cotton bobbin lace. (No! I didn't make that).

Izzy is beautiful! I would love to try my hand at doll making some day, but I don't think I could come up with one as lovely as this!

I so admire your dolls. Maybe someday I'll get to see them in person!

Wonderful work, as usual~
