She made these lace costumes all by hand using laces found in thrift and antique shops and dyed with coffee and tea set with vinegar.
That is Jan in the far right bottom row holding my repaired doll. I bought her a new pair of black Paten shoes there. She still needs a new dress. I will knit and crochet clothes for her before giving her to my grand daughter for her next birthday, or maybe Chanukah. If she takes good care of her and saves her for her own daughter one day this doll will have become a true antique.
Jan told me my doll is an unsigned Madame Alexander doll and that her hair is still in its original form. She said I took excellent care of her. She said it is now worth several hundred dollars and will probably appreciate in time. I of course find it most valuable in it's sentimental components.
