I have named the doll, "Jubal"(aka NY). The doll is my version of an antique cloth doll, called the New York doll. She is 30 inches tall with a hand painted face and black velvet yarn looped hair (hand sewed). She is dressed in civil war repo fabric. Her shoes are made out of hand painted fabric and her socks are made out of knit. She holds a calico cat. She is sporting hand made jewelry, especially made for her lol. Her clothes are removable.

She is wearing pantaloons and a half slip. Every inch of her is hand made.

The necklace is made out of green glass beads (sand blasted with color) and her ring is a yellow green stone with a copper wire band.

Here is the N Y doll all done and dressed, with her calico cat. This will be a short post. I need to decide if she needs a bonnet. I know she needs a ring on those long fingers.

Another doll on the finish. This is a repo of the New York doll. She is considered an antique, I think. Just google New York doll and you can see what the orginal looks like. I have painted her face instead of embroidery. I kept the shape of the eyes and nose and the mouth to some degree and prettied her up a bit. I did keep her serious expression to some degree also. I also did her hair in velvet yarn loops instead of embroidery.

Here she is with her shoes and socks. I make the shoes out of some of my painted fabric and the socks out of some old T-shirt scraps that I saved from my last t-shirt quilt.

Here is is in her underwear.

And here is what she looked like before she got all rouged up and half dressed lol.

And here is her final stage of underwear. Slip and her cat. Tomorrow, the dress.
