This is what the originals were like (they varied a lot!)
Here's my interpretation:
I'm looking forward to the dressing of this doll - she will wear a simple dress with some kind of print pinafore over the top and maybe a bonnet.
By the way, if you are interested in making or even just discussing antique-inspired cloth dolls like those originally made by Izannah Walker, Emma Adams, Ella Smith etc, MAIDA is a great group to belong to.......plenty of stimulating discussion and sharing with a wonderful bunch of doll-makers!
