My Izannah Walker doll named Nellie


Hello everyone, i thought i'd drop in and show you the colors i have chosen for Miss Nellie's dress. I will be adding some trim to the top of the neckline (Thanks Becky) and maybe another row at the bottom of her skirt, i havent tea dyed her dress, yet. She is excited to have atleast a little clothing on. Next week I will make her chemise and drawers. For them, i think i will use some antique linen napkins that are nicely aged, no tea dying needed there.

I hope everyone is safe and warm, and may all you prayers be answered!!!

Great Big Fat Dollie Hugs,

Jackies
