Living Dead Girl and her Dolly

The dolls are a union of sewing machine and hand stitching
and both come signed and dated by me .
They will make a beautiful addition to someones home as a display piece .
The main doll is permanently mounted on an old wooden spool and measures about 16 inches tall .The smaller doll measures about 6 1/2 inches tall .
The two dolls bodies were created using raw silk fabric and each were painted, sanded, stained and painted once more to give the pieces a wonderful vintage look and feel .
The bigger doll has extremely fine hand-painted features .
They are both dressed in cotton fabric dresses .
The bigger dolls' dress is from a vintage girls dress pattern which I have modified to a doll size .
The dresses neckline was embellished with cotton lace .
Ther hair is of wool that is stitched in place .
Old buttons were used on the two dresses .
Listing on Ebay for 10 days starting on oct 2 08
