Meet my latest handmade Garden Party Girl doll, Elizabeth Birdsall. She is known as Birdie to her friends because of her sprightly manner.
Birdie is a research librarian and a genealogist. She helps people trace their family history and fill in the blanks on their family tree. She is also an accomplished watercolor painter who creates tree images and branch diagrams for those who wish to display their roots as an heirloom.
Birdie is made from new cotton and muslin fabrics. She has light blue rayon/acrylic yarn hair shaped into a flattering bob. She wears a multi-color patterned dress patterned with birds and flowers, accented with an attached blue belt and pink ribbon bow. Her dress, pink gingham knickers, laced shoes and yarn hair are all attached securely to her body. She comes with a removable deep pink felt coat and hat with bow and hand-embroidered flower detail.
Like all my Garden Party Girl dolls, Birdie is posable with flexible limbs. Her arms open wide for hugs or can be crossed to show a bit of spunk.
Birdie has been asked to speak this spring at a genealogist's convention in New York City. She is debating which jacket from PinkGingerKitty shop to bring with - the aqua ikat print jacket shown above or the pink plaid jacket shown below. Which one do you think she should wear?
