This is one of the new dolls that I made for the UFDC convention. I love this doll! She is a reproduction of a wonderful early Izannah Walker doll. The original doll is simply awe inspiring, with many amazing differences from Izannah’s slightly later dolls. Because this is the oldest Izannah Walker doll that I have had the privilege of studying, I have decided to simply refer to her and this mold as Izannah.
Izannah left today for her new home. Sharon purchased her at the San Antonio convention, and ordered custom made shoes for her ; so I got to have the pleasure of her company for a bit longer as I stitched her stockings and yellow leather shoes!
As you can probably tell, this is a large doll. The original is 22-1/2 inches tall. My reproduction grew a 1/2 inch and measures 23 inches high. She has been bragging to me that it is because she has better posture 🙂
This was a fascinating reproduction to make and I am already eagerly looking forward to making another one!
