I've named this girl Candace after my beloved grandmother. She is from a Gail Wilson pattern named New York Doll. The original New York Girl is the cover picture on a book by Wendy Lavitt, American Folk Dolls. Don't know if her little leather shoes and pantaloons show up in this pic.
Candace needs an old-fashioned wool cape with hood. I need to make that plus I want to make another New York girl in a different dress. So much I want to do, so little time.
Her body is made from old linen remnants.. face and hair are embroidered.. You can see just a peek of her individual fingers..
She is stuffed with wool and her body is padded with thermolam .. Handmade/Hand Sewn ..
