Sweet Izannah Walker inspired Doll


Sweet Izannah Walker Style Doll

I love working on Izannah Walker Style Dolls. Having taken the class with Dixie Redmond, an expert on Izannah Walkers, I have found this to be one of my favorite dolls to recreate. Her dress pattern is in period, her undergarments are made from antique muslim and lace. Antique buttons and lots of love have gone into this creation. She is holding an antique tin pail filled with lovely dried flowers. The details on this doll from start to finish will not disappoint you.
