A recient Lady

Hi everyone......Here is our most recent lady standing 17 inches tall and in her deceptively simple and elegant dress. I am so pleased with the perfect fit of this dress, the tight as a glove bodice / stomacher and the beautiful drape of the dress in the back. The patterns of the antique wool are so wonderful to work with as well and make the antique wools one of my favourite fabrics to work with.
I think this one has soul and such a interesting expression and personality. What do you think she is thinking?

Our newest early 18th century beauty

I am so pleased with every aspect of this doll. As my own worst critic and being a stickler for no artistic license aloud on our dolls and 100% authenticity to the antiques always, I rarely complete a doll that I would not or do not make changes on, but this is one doll that falls into that rare category of "I would not change a thing". I love everything about this doll from her face, personality, carving style and proportions, her painting and patina, her dress and shoes and so on.

She has the most amazing real antique look in person and feel in hand and I am just so pleased with every aspect of this doll.
A big thank you to our lovely friend Lois for her beautiful early dress fabric that just worked up amazing and feels amazing as well when handling the doll.
I hope everyone enjoys seeing her. Remember to click on the photos if you want to see a full sized image.
