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

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.
