Emma Rose - 31" Vintage Style Cloth Doll Sewing Pattern by Judi Ward
Emma Rose is a 31" tall "Vintage Look" doll. Designed to duplicate an old doll, who sold on E-Bay in 2003 for about $5000.00!!!!
She has Gessoed and painted head and hands, and is made from woven cotton fabric. In addition to the doll parts, the pattern includes patterns for her dress, pantaloons, slip, chemise, bonnet and shoes. She wears baby socks...or...if you knit, you can knit her some socks.
The clothes are designed to look like the "real" old doll's clothes, and are a very vintage style. Her bonnet is a "slat" type, which little girls and women wore to keep the sun from their faces. Her pattern has 13 pages of step by step directions and drawings, and 5 pages, front and back, of pattern pieces. Two pages are in full color.
She has an easy face shading method, using powdered blush. A method almost anyone can do successfully. It is fun too. Kinda' like putting make-up on. This is a vintage look doll that makes a statement and displays beautifully in your home.
I didn't "age" my dolls. I decided to leave them as if they were what the truly old doll might have looked like, when it was new in the late 1800s. But if you like the aged look, of course, you can do that.
