Izannah Walker Style Doll~My Favorite!

(CLICK ON PICTURES TO ENLARGE)
I am so excited about finishing this doll.  She is 17" tall, made of cloth with a head and shoulder plate that I purchased from Susie McMahon.  It was made from a mold she made from an original doll that she hand sculpted. I was hesitant to purchase it as I didn't know if my painting would do her work justice but I must say I am quite pleased with her. Ok, so I am tooting my own horn, a girl can do that once in a while right?
She will be listed on eBay Sunday night, June 10th at 9:00 p.m. EST.

My Latest Project~ A New Izannah Walker Style Doll Pattern

I had a request to make a doll with specific measurements from Carol McDaniel who makes and sells beautiful dresses on eBay, userid is scoutpigs.  She has been modeling her clothes on China head dolls in her collection and wanted an Izannah Walker style doll.  I have purchased a few of her dresses and love the detail in her work and welcomed the opportunity to make a doll pattern specific to her dress measurements.  Here is the 18" doll  in her birthday suit and in a dress I recently purchased from her.
