LAVINIA
lavinia.jpg

This is my entry in the Australian Cloth Doll Challenge 2003

My aim was to make a lady from the 18th century wearing a sack dress, also known as contouch and & to have it as close to the real thing as I could get it.
I found patterns from the time, including all undergarments (most of which are hidden) and reduced them to fit my doll.
The shoes are hand made from brocade and the chemise is pintucked. The stomacher is boned and the hair is copied from the paintings of the day.

IN THE BEGINNING

After playing around with making dolls since my daughter was born in 1980, they took over my life in late 1994 after attending a workshop with elinor peace bailey from the USA.
Here are some of my early dolls made from her patterns.
