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.
