Primitive Folk Art Doll "Ode to Gossip" Dorothy

This morning Dorothy came and knocked on my door looking like this. She had on her Norman Rockwell "Gossip" fabric dress and old fashioned eyelet lace edged pantaloons with her sturdy black lace up shoes..... she had just gotten back from the beauty shop where "She got the worst perm ever from some little "snip" she told to roll it ~nice and tight~ whom didnt listen."
She was flushed and out of breath from hurrying over, so she plopped down in a chair to catch her breath holding her black purse tightly
"I was just comming out from under the dryer," she said, leaning over and lowering her voice,
"You are not going to believe what I just heard!" Well I'm not one to repeat gossip but I'll let Dorothy tell you! LOL....

Dorothy is made from stained muslin and has sewn features with beady little eyes and needlefelted wool hair. Her shoes are painted and have cotton laces. Under her dress she wears muslin pantaloons with lace. Dorothy clutches her black purse adorned with a big button and her grungy hang tag says, "You are not going to believe what I just heard"....she's a hoot. This doll was made from a pattern by Sweet Meadows Farm.

Chair is not part of the auction.
