Izannah Walker black boy doll


Here is a picture of my next Izannah Walker doll, he is a boy and i am contemplating a dark gray miniature polk a dot print dress for him. I want to stick to the original period outfitting for boys, which was an actual dress with long bloomers. Hope you like him so far. I think he is beautiful! His blushing and lip colour are not as pink as the picture appears. Thanks Shirl for the inspirational photo! : )
Many Hugs,
Jackie

Off to another great start Jackie! Can't wait to see him completed.

Oh My, Thank You gals! I had recieved an Idea from Dixie about giving him 2 sets of clothing, which is a brilliant idea, but i still like the idea of period clothing.
Oh Yes steel wool oo grade works wonders, just like new windows! Takes a bit of elbow grease but it is so worth it!
Many Hugs,
