The Texture of 100 Years of Dollhood






The texture of over 100 years of dollyhood is beautiful. It's my hope that the creations I make will be around 100 years from now and more, even if they show the signs of loving care of their owners. You've seen this doll before, but not some of the detail pictures I was able to take, courtesy of Lucy's Doll House in Camden, Maine.

The dress on this doll is particularly sweet.
The fabric was so fine and thin, and the print so charming.

This particular doll was layered in clothing - she had on pantaloons, then a chemise and under slip, and then on top of that was an embroidered dress undergarment, and finally the sweet dress above.
