Spring Dress

I failed ever to have this creation of mine on my blog, and as I love her so much and she has sold, I am simply putting her picture here now. This is a style wherein I sew two pieces of muslin or any kind of fabric together in the shape of something I want to make it into. I then turn it and paint it. These are wall hangings or table toppers. I love the finished feel because it is so like a doll, yet not really. This one is based on an old Godey Ladies Magazine fashion called Spring Dress. I do not have the date but am guessing the 1860's.
