The doll is ink and Copic markers on watercolor paper; nothing fancy (I was trying to keep it simple to prevent myself from going off the deep end fussing about details). I based the designs of the dresses on carriage dresses in a fashion plate from Ladies' Museum, June 1831 (I wanted to do something "summery" since it's that time of year). I really should have included a hat. This reduction doesn't show some of the details (I used a very very light shade of grey on her corset and pantalettes ~ so there is definition there, it's just hard to see on this scan, unfortunately).
