In light of the new warm weather, I thought that my reproduction Queen Anne doll, Charity, could use a new gown. She was a gift for a past birthday -- she's from the 1995 UFDC convention!
She came with clothes of her own, but I wanted so badly to dress her myself in 18th century garb! She wears a shift, pannier hoops, a petticoat, and a pocket as underthings. I have yet to figure out how to construct a pair of 18th century stays. She also wears a mobcap.
The new gown is a pink print with a modesty piece, ruffled sleeves, and gathers in the back to simulate the tapes of a robe anglaise.
