Rosella in Susan Fosnot's own words:
New Pattern AND detailed painting instructions!

Rosella is inspired by both old china dolls and the all cloth dolls of Izannah Walker, as well as American Folk Art Portraits.

Pattern for Doll And Clothing
The pattern is based on an old china doll body. This design, called a Steuber type body, features a specially constructed seat to help the doll sit nicely. Leather boots and striped
stockings are sewn as part of the doll. This all-cloth doll also features applied ears and stitched fingers. The dress is a mid-19th century design. It is all cut from rectangles, artfully
gathered and draped. Underwear pattern is included. Finished height of doll is 21 inches.

Painting Instructions
Step-by-step oil painting instructions guide you in creating the portrait style face and long curls. Color illustrations show you each step of the project. Additional instructions are included
for glazing technique, mixing colors, and a discussion of brushes.
