I just have no time to dress this lovely 16" Fully Jointed Doll.
She has been laying here long enough wishing she had clothing. She is hoping that someone will have time to sew for her and to give her a NAME!
Inquire for photos in info. email@example.com
SEE, SHE NEEDS HAIR, AND CLOTHES AND A CAP AND A NAME!!!

I am thrilled to show you Jocelyn. This doll is HUGE and has been moved from my studio to my dining room and for a while in a big drawer! I finally finished her off as she really needs a home other than a drawer. LOL.
Her patina is really wonderful. She is the type of Queen Anne Doll that I often refer to as Egg Head dolls, for obvious reasons. This style was more from the very late 1700's and into the early 1800's. I love these big dolls with the very simple looking faces. They have character all on their own.
I have made Jocelyn with all fully removable clothing and a few accessories.
Here is a list of all that comes with Jocelyn: Shoes Stockings Cotton antique petticoat Wool antique petticoat Cotton stripe homespun skirt (this fabric is vintage but wonderful colours so I used it) Pair of antique linen crewel pockets Sewing roll made of antique early cottons Antique needle point bag and sewing ball that I made her Antique sampler apron with initials M B so perhaps her name should change to?? Mary Beth?? Antique chemise with tiny button closure. Very early madder Caraco jacket Lace cap Straw bonnet Necklace made of antique glass beads.

Her sewing roll.....
2 petticoats and as you see she has an antique needle point bag and sewing ball
Jocelyn's sewing roll.......
Jocelyn has an antique sampler made into an apron. I see the initials MB so perhaps her name should be Mary Beth??
Lucille is so charming in person. Her clothes and shoes are made of very early cottons. She is jointed at the hips and not at the knees. Her eyes are antique glass.
If you would like more photos or have questions just email me: email@example.com Lucille is SOLD
I just added some more photos of Margie with her antique collar off (which is how I prefer her). She claims she is not a fancy doll at all.
She is 18" tall and fully jointed she sits very well as you see below.
Margie is dressed from head to toe in early cottons that really do suit her well. I have not made of of these types of Queen Anne dolls for a long time, as someone brought to my attention. I really do love them and I love dressing them. They have a simple yet charming look to them and grouped together they all look to me like they hold secrets.
Her dress is beautifully finished and laces up the back to the antique piece at the neck could be removed. I have it just pinned there right now so the new owner can advise me if it is to remain or not. Either way she looks good. She has a lovely pinball hanging from her arm as well and that can stay with her too.
Margie is SOLD.

Ella is now AVAILABLE. She is 21" tall and about 11" wide at her hip area. She makes quite a statement in a room and would be the envy of many.
I shall let the photos speak for themselves. I will just say that she is fabulous and so much nicer in person.
I have not had a doll that was finished and available for quite some time as I have been working on orders. Ella is now SOLD.

ELLA'S SILK SHOES
ELLA IS FULLY JOINTED
HER SILK GOWN IS MADE UP OF 4 TYPES OF SILK STRIPS THAT ARE SEWN TOGETHER BY HAND TO MAKE THE FULL SKIRT.
THE SKIRT IS FULLY LINED WITH THE MOST WONDERFUL ANTIQUE POLISHED COTTON LINING
I am thrilled to show you Annie.
She is 18" tall and fully jointed. She stands and sits well.
Where should I start? Annie has antique black glass eyes and really wonderful patina that you need to see in person to appreciate. She looks old!
She is dressed in early cotton print and wears an antique petticoat with the tiniest hand stitching. Her bum roll makes her gown sit beautifully on her hips. Her apron, cap and embroidered shawl collar are all made from very early pieces from the UK. She has a lovely pinball that I made for her looped over her wrist and that comes with her as well.
Her shoes are handmade from early silk brocade.
I think Annie was either a Nanny or a Seamstress or perhaps the lady that polished the silver at the palace! I spend so much time making that these dolls and they seem to speak to me along their journey to completion.

Meet Laura. She is all dressed in antique cottons from head to toe. She is hand carved and jointed at the hips but not at the knees as she is small. She measures 11" tall.
Black dolls are so very hard to get good photos of and I assure you she is so much nicer in person and does not have shine to her face. she really does have very fine features that are not showing up well in these photos.
I have not made one of these dolls in a long time so I went all out on her clothing. She really is lovely.

I forgot to mention Laura's jewelry!
Thanks for looking.
