1820's Doll inspirtation

After spending time with Christine and other such Queen Anne Dollie people and their blogs I wanted to try my hand at a doll inspired from 1820's.


It was my friend Lulu's birthday and we made dolls around her new art table. I made a box bust doll inspired by Nancy Williams Prayer Box class.

I tried my hand at a little 1820's girl. Sitting on the right. (I also just got the new issue of Prim...for more inspiration.) She is waiting for her real dress.

I also include Coco doll in her straw hat that I made this past summer. They are thinking about my trip to Europe.........see the Eiffel tower....

Deirdra, you have definitely captured the feel of the era with these dolls - and the charm and beauty that a bit of modernity can add. Beautiful creations.
