"Lady Mary" is my latest reproduction of 18th c. English Style
Queen Anne Wooden Dolls. I have posted many photos so you can see all the details in this doll.
Any questions or comments,
I made her clothing from antique and vintage fabrics. Lady Mary is wearing
a two-piece gown in red- ruby tones. Her open-front bodice is made
of a 1950's vintage silk-taffeta and the skirt is a 19th c. Silk Damask.
One of the things I enjoy in the design of my doll's clothing is to use solid colors to compliment the wonderful patterns and prints of the early textiles. I love how it all came together!
Rare and beautiful example of 19th century textile, French Scrolled Silk Damask, dates from around 1850's.
Whites: Made from 19th c. textiles. She is wearing a quilted petticoat,
corset with lace-up back, two hip pads that will help her skirt hang
and drape nicely, French lace embroidered bonnet with delicate and wide ribbon ties.
She has a wonderful patina.
