The Story of My Dolls

Vintage, Historical
and Primitive Cloth Dolls

Estelle Ansley Worrell Doll
1830's costume

The Suffragettewas made from a
Butterick pattern designed in the late 1800's for a Challenge on the
Vintage Cloth Dollmaker's Forum That used to exist on Yahoo Groups.

To me the face looks like it is staring out of the past.

The body is tea-dyed. The arms are attached with 'puppet' joints.
The face and shoulders have been painted with acrylic paint and 'distressed
to make them look old.
