New Petticoats

Here are the old and the new little dolls in two versions of the same pattern.  The old doll has the skirt of her petticoat made from a length of ready gathered broderie englaise.  The new doll's skirt is plain fabric edged with lace (which I still can't get to show up well in pictures).

There is about forty years difference in the ages of these dolls, I think.  I haven't seen any new dolls made in the same way as the old one for a long time.  The new doll is much better made and probably costs the equivalent amount to the original price of the old doll.

  1. This is an inspiration for me to make a petticoat for my Lorraine (an Effanbee 18" Gloria Ann doll).
