|An A to Z Story of a French Fashion Doll|
|Inspiration for the Buggy|
Marie Terese is a young French Fashion doll created by Alice Leverette, and was given as a souvenir gift at a UFDC conference three years back. She's 10.5" tall and was modeled after a Huret (if this mouse is not mistaken). Many collectors displayed her for the young mademoiselle she is, and others, like my friend, made her into another doll.
The story by Tasha Tudor is for young children and alphabet by item, Tasha illustrates all the glorious items Annabelle possesses. A very charming book that inspired many a seamstress and doll accessorist to create her loot.

The main problems were in the assembly and attachment, and while it is a fragile piece primarily for display, it is as well built as a mouse could make it. The color of the posts and ornate oval came to me after I deduced that black bars would make the buggy look like a jail, and the lighter tan opens the piece up and allows the doll to shine.
In a sense it was good for me to take this departure from sewing for a bit so I could keep my skills fresh...and I do have those paddles to carve! A box of lovely basswood arrived today.
I also wish to thank my readers for leaving such lovely comments. I appreciate it more than you could imagine!
