 She is wearing a two-piece gown, this early cotton is light, airy, soft and flows beautifully.




And here is a view from the back.....she looks fabulous with
her lace-up back bodice.

Cloth pocket: 19th c. Ottoman, lovely example of early embroidery in silk and metallic threads.

Quilted bustle pad: it's sewn in the 19th century style, would help her skirt hang and drape gracefully.



I took this picture of my doll before applying
her hair. She is one-piece carved wooden head and torso

 Here is Josephine ready to get dressed.
