I have been working on this doll for quite some time. She is affectionately known to us as ( my favorite ), which i guess is mean to the other dolls, as they are just as sweet in their own way. I found on the Hwy 11 Flea market which runs from Meridian, Ms to several states aboove us, this material for her dresss and bonnet. I just loved it and it's so nice to work with. It is perfectly faded and has a few tiny holes but nothing to keep it from being sound. I made her pantyloons, slip, chemise, from plain cotton fabric that has an old look and feel. The underware has been aged to a old look, but just mellow enough to look like real old garments. The outfit is not perfect, but I think it's beautiful. It might have a few small places that look worn as it would be with age. The sewing is not perfect, but I think everything turned out real good.
