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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY basic sewing machine skills basic hand sewing skills moderate dollmaking skill SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished doll measures about 11" tall.

Supplies Needed

  • 12" tubular gauze (or make your own from stretchy fabric)
  • 8 oz. wool or polyester stuffing
  • 10" x 10" knit skintone fabric (stretchy)

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!
