I’d like to introduce you to sweet, sweet James. He is a very rare, early 17 inch Izannah Walker doll. I’ve written an article all about James’ story for Antique Doll Collector magazine, that is just now on it’s way to subscribers. In March the second part of my adventures with James will continue. In part two I will relate how James’ came to be named James, how I researched clothing styles for the large handmade wardrobe I am making him, where I hunt for antique fabrics, and how I draft patterns. I’ll also be sharing patterns and instructions for select garments in James’ wardrobe. The patterns are suitable for Izannah Walker dolls, and can also be resized to fit papier-mache, china, parian, and other types of cloth dolls from the mid- 19th century.
I’m sure you will fall in love with James. ❤ (It is a bit of a family secret, so please don’t mention it… James the little painted cloth girls favorite brother!)
