Mimi's Victoria Rose (1885) — 3rd Edition — 2017
Victoria Rose is an easy-to-make, armatured, 16-inch, free-standing cloth doll. She has a young, full-figured, anatomically-proportioned body with a late 19th Century silhouette.
Suitable for Beginning to Advanced Cloth Dollmakers
You have a choice of three faces:
- a very easy traced face, embroidered or colored with pencils and/or crayons
- a trapunto (quilted) face
- a sophisticated needle-modeled face
Victoria Rose's clothing was meticulously researched. Her undergarments consist of a set of combinations (these replaced the chemise and drawers, and had no crotch), a corset, a petticoat, and a bustle pad. (The bustle returned as a pad in the late 1880's.) Her outer garments are a lined walking skirt, a dickey, (rather than a complete blouse to diminish bulk), a lined jacket, and a beautiful hat.
Her Victorian boots are paperclay covered with glove leather.
Her hair can be made from either wefted mohair or from textured yarn. Instructions for cleaning and wefting mohair are included.
This is a beautiful doll that I have enjoyed designing. I think you will like all the options.
