shoulders, elbows, hip and knees.

I made her apron from a beautiful 19th century hand made Brussels applique net lace in off-white. Another exquisite piece of her clothing that Antonia will use in a very special occasion. 
Her bum roll pad sewn in the 18th c. style will help her
skirt hang and drape nicely.
