My Latest Project~ A China Doll

(Click pictures to enlarge)
I recently purchased an antique cloth body and German china head from separate shop owners on Ruby Lane hoping to assemble them together. They worked so perfect that you would think they came together originally like this. I had some wooden hands that I painted white to match her face color and sleeved them into antique fabric to match the doll body to make arms. Below are pictures of the doll before and after. She is dressed in antique white cotton fabrics with embroidery and lace trimmings. I made her a pair of red leather boots to match her red straw bonnet, She measures 21" tall.
