This little Izzybelle is a special order doll for Suzanne. Izzybelle has packed her clothes and is all ready to travel to her new home. ❤ She can hardly wait!
Izzybelle has a tiny gold thimbe necklace.
Izzybelle’s second skin is made from pale blue antique linen.
Izzybelle’s knee length chemise makes a perfect nighty too!
Dark blue homespun checked dress, with cartridge pleating, growth tuck and pointed sleeve overlays.

Izzybelle’s second dress has pagoda sleeves. Her new mom plans to make her white undersleeves to complete her mid-nineteenth century look.
Izzybelle’s shoes are made from royal blue kid skin leather,

Hi Paula, What a sweet little face on this pretty little Izannah! I love her, and her dresses are perfect for her. She will be a wonderfully sweet, and fun little girl for her new owner! Susie
Thank you Susie! She has joined two of her big sisters in her new home and I’ve heard that she is fitting into the family perfectly. 🙂
