My Izannah style girls

                                               SOLD:    GRACE

                                                 SOLD : ANNIE

                                                   SOLD:   LOTTIE
 Lottie is one of my Izannah Walker inspired dolls and is 17" tall. She's made from cotton fabric and stuffed with cotton, just like the early dolls. She has a paper clay head that I have made from my hand sculpted mold. The head is over a stuffed cloth . I have covered her head with stockinette fabric and I have made her ears from the stockinette and stitched and glued them in place and added some modelling clay. I have carefully painted her arms, legs, shoes and head/ shoulders , giving her a slightly crazed/crackled look and then aged her slightly.
She comes with her attached second skin, underwear, petticoat that I have especially made for her using both vintage and new cotton fabrics.. Her petticoat,chemise and dress have hook and hand sewn loop closures and her bloomers have a drawstring and her apron is tied at the back. Her clothes are machine and hand sewn. i have based her apron on some of the early styles using permanent ink for the design. I have given the clothes an antique look with some dying and staining.
