Sharing a bit of red, white and blue for Flag Day…

I bought this doll last week when I visited Rainie Crawford.  Rainie purchased the doll from the original owners family in New Briton , CT.  The doll has lovely child like proportions, a spectacular wool challis print dress and very sweet little red leather shoes.  She has promised to share all of her dressmaking secretes with my Izannahs!

These glorious Prussian blue leather baby shoes were another purchase from Rainie.  They are very simply the BEST shoes I have ever seen in my life!  I am particularly drawn to them because of their resemblance to the shoes I make for my Izannahs.  I plan to study their construction for insights on how to improve my 19th century shoe making skills.

Surprise! Rosy red leather soles!!!  I can just picture these shoes on tiny waving baby feet...
