1912 doll in the challenge slip

Here is the doll I made to wear the 1912 clothing, in the challenge slip.

Under it she is wearing lisle stockings with ribbon garters, high button shoes, and "open" drawers.

She is 16 inches tall with a 7.5 inch waist which translates to 5'4" with a 30" waist.

I reduced the pattern to 25% (approximately) and used the method of drawing on the stitching lines rather than using the cutting lines given. I used the insertion lace instructions given only at the flounce seam as I didn't care for the openness of the insertion over the body, And of course I didn't pleat the flounce as I loved this deeply scalloped eyelet so much.
