While creating imaginary situations with her dolls, my daughter often craved an adult to be part of the play, as a result the Grand Victorian Lady Doll was born! She's really quite a versatile doll, because she can be so many characters. For example, she makes a wonderful Mother Earth, Mother, Grandmother Doll or Teacher.
This Grand Lady is created on a pedestal, which means she has no feet or legs that are visible. The pedestal under her dress has been covered with a "petticoat" to hide the mechanics. This design allows her to stand very steadily on almost any surface.
The finished doll is about 11" tall. This pattern includes step-by-step instructions, color photos, excellent diagrams and full size patterns.
Moderate dollmaking skill required.
I have been crafting since birth, I think. I don't remember a time when I wasn't making things from fabric, yarn, paper, beads, natural objects or purchased craft supplies. It's so relaxing and enjoyable. I guess I'm just a big kid (at heart) because one of my favorite themes for my sewing projects are fairies!
