All of her clothing is made from antique fabrics.
DRESS: 19th c. French Printed Linen. . 




She has a wonderful patina


A closer look at her cap, Victorian French lace...divine!




Beautiful Victorian Silk in a lovely Ivory color I have had in my stash for some years 
I love it, it looks perfect on my doll.








Beautiful example of 19th c. French textile


Her silk stockings and garters
(ladies salvaged stockings from the Edwardian Era)

In the eighteenth to twentieth centuries, garters were tied just below the knee, where the leg is most slender, to keep the stocking from slipping.


Shoes: 19th c. English Silk
Embellished with silver metallic lace and glass seed beads from the Victorian Era. Lovely!
