This charming cloth doll was made in the late 1940s from the McCall's Godey Lady doll pattern. These dolls always tickle me as the finished product depended so heavily on the skill of the maker but they are always charming! This one is no exception. She has yarn hair and embroidered features and comes wearing her original outfit. She is coming to you with an example of the pattern from she was made. McCalls issued this pattern in 1946 and it included patterns and instruction for the doll and a wardrobe, as well as diagrams to aid in creating her facial features. This a great post war item designed to look back at the romance of an earlier era.

Size: 14" Maker: Unknown, home made from McCalls pattern

Marks: none

Condition: She exhibits minimal age-related wear overall, her fabric is strong and supple. The pattern envelope shows some wear as can be seen in the photos, a few pattern pieces have been cut out.
