"Debra", 27" Doll - Victorian "Lady" Art Doll E-Pattern - Victorian Series - 1853 Walking Dress - Pattern Category - Skill Level - Advanced
Debra just loves to stroll the parks in the afternoon showing off her beautiful outfit. It is very pretty to look at with it's blue and white combination.
She has a fancy lace and ruffled trim lined faux suede blue jacket with double stand-up collar and mid-length gathered and lace decorated sleeves. Her jacket is also decorated along all the edges with white lace trim - inside and outside. The outside is flat white lace while the inside is gathered white colored lace that hangs down below the bottom hemline. The jacket is waistline length and ties in the front with two sets of white ribbons. Her dress is bi-colored with the upper and second overskirt tier being white and the bottom and first overskirt tier being a blue print fabric. The dress sleeves are gathered and the sleeve cuff is the same fabric as the lower part of the dress. The lower part of the dress is three tiered with two overskirts. The top overshirt and second overskirt tier are each decorated with gathered white lace along the edges and flat white lace just above that. Each overskirt tier is gathered at the waistline and the second overskirt tier is also gathered up the front center line and back center line. There is 4Th level of gathered lace around the waistline of the dress. She has a very fancy multiple-tiered gathered white and blue lace & floral trimmed lined hat covered with white silk flowers all along the top of the hat. The front inside of the hat is covered with several layers of tulle. Wired ribbon is sewn to the inside of the hat and is used to secure the hat to the head. The wired ribbon is tied under her neck in a large bow just to the left of her chin. Her curly dark brown hair is gathered along the front sides of her face and covered by her beautiful floral hat. She also has a lace trimmed slip underneath her dress. One of my sister-in-laws Mother's old white colored lace scarf is draped around her shoulders as a shawl. Her arms are wire-shaped and covered and she is wearing lace gloves. She also has a fabric covered head and covered square wood base. Her inner body is supported by a dowel and is covered with fabric and lace. She is stuffed with a ton of old bits of fabric to mimic some of the dolls of old days.
