BASIC DOLL (and her 3" Doll's Doll) - The Early
American Doll Series (beginning in the mid-1980's) was based
on this "basic doll". It was to begin with a basic
doll - a doll that was simple and affordable, but not plain
and I wanted her appealing to the heart. Her construction is
taken from humble cloth dolls, but she becomes a little more
defined with her delicate joints and painted surface, which
is another old-time technique. She has a mohair wig and is
stuffed with real wool. Her jointed arms and legs are weighted
so she will sit well. She comes, and I like her best, in her
camisole and pantaloons, but then there is clothing to add
and accessories as well. She even has her own doll (which comes
with her in the kit). I have tried to make the kits as fool-proof
as possible with silkscreened sewing lines, premeasured stuffing
amounts and stencils for face detail. Patterns are also included
for future bodies or you can order additional silkscreens.
Her 3" doll's doll is included in the kit but sold separately
if purchased finished.

The Basic Doll kit will come with a free Dress and Pinafore Pattern

Doll. For all her other clothing and accessories options see
