This doll fairly flew, and I felt my Granma Agnes watching, and smiling over my shoulder, as I worked on her.
I had to take off the gold lace at the top, but put blonde curls in their stead. She always wore her hair pulled straight back into a bun, or in braids, to sleep. She didn't allow the curls to roam freely over her head, so I did it for her.
She is also wearing a colorful shrug over her blue dress, and has lots of lace on her dress, beneath her lace apron. Those aprons were usually done in cross stitch embroidery, but I used bugles, to give it a bit of Gypsy bling!
I hope you enjoy these pics- remember you can doubleclick on them to make them full-size.
