Evelyne’s Doll Part Two

1st day of school www.izannahwalker.com

More photos of Evelyne’s doll now that her dress is dry 🙂 These are much better photos that those I took yesterday at sunset.  I almost deleted yesterday’s photographs, but I decided to keep the first post up so that you can see what a difference better lighting makes.

Evelyne sent me a photograph of an antique Izannah Walker wearing a dress that was made in a very similar way to the indigo print dress on the left.  I bought the antique  indigo dress last September with the intention of using to draft a pattern.  Evelyne's request for a blue check dress motivated me to finally get a pattern drawn up.

The top stitching shows up better on the antique dress with it's darker background.

Evelyne’s doll is finished and ready to travel.  She’ll be leaving here soon on her journey to Belgium.

  1. Paula, thank you for sharing photos of your antique doll dresses, as well as the remarkable ones you make. I am amazed at your ability to draft patterns and your knowledge of 19th century fabrics. I think you are destined to be well remembered for your doll dressmaking skills.

  2. Thank you! I have a passion for early dress making and I sincerely enjoy sharing the antique examples that I find 🙂
