Rosita looks like a doll that has been handed down
through many generations. She is beautifully dressed in
19th c. textiles
.A close-up of her Civil War era fashion bonnet. Off white pleated cotton,
decorated with delicate lace and wide ribbon ties.
Rosita is wearing a beautiful dress, the skirt has a nice drape.
The printed blue fabric is one of the earliest calicos that were imported
into the Americas in the early 1830's. The skirt is printed cotton, dating
to about 1900's -1910 (Edwardian Era). These wonderful timeworn
textiles are fragile, but quite good for textiles so old.
I love her tiny hands..
Petticoat and Bloomers: I made for Rosita this lovely 2-pc undergarment set, these are fine cotton fabrics from the Victorian Era. The petticoat has a beautiful pattern.
The "second skin" is a fabulous antique cotton fabric.
Beautiful hairstyle with two side curls, and five more curls
down the nape of the neck.
