JANE

If you remember a while back I bought A Girl for All Time doll Sam from the sixties. I wanted her to become a regency lass.

I had bought her for a good price so went back and bought another because I needed another one for my regency plans.

The second girl who came had a better fringe, so I removed the wig from the orginial Sam I bought and I have now called her Jane.

So then began a search of the wig box for just the right wig ! I did quite like this one.

008

Looked better with it tied back and leaving front curls.

I then tried this one but it was too white and it’s a modern wig which as a layer of brown under the white.

you can see the brown where I plaited it.

So nothing was quite right, so ofcourse I went looking for the perfect one! I found two I liked the look of , so bought both and have been waiting for them to arrive. Which they did today.

This was the first one, it would need tweaking, here I have just put it on to see if it fit and suited.

The back which again needs styling but lovely soft mohair.

and this was the second and my favourite for her.

The back just beautiful.

So this is the one! Jane finally starting her journey into the Regency period.

Now I just need to find/make her some shoes ! oh and a petticoat  a chemise,

a dress , a jacket and a bonnet…….. no pressure….

  1. You definitely chose the perfect wig, she looks lovely, and it looks as if it’s made for her. 🙂 What a difference with how Sam originally looks, love it! I wish you a lot of fun with creating the garments and look forward to seeing your progress.

    I like the wig you have selected for her. The color goes well with her skin tone.

    I look forward to seeing the outfit you create. I am a big fan of the Regency Period, thanks to Jane Austen.
