Tabitha is my modern interpretation of a 1970s childhood where little house on the prairie and Holly Hobby dolls were firm favourites. She has a linen dress with vintage collar and felt apple and strawberry accessories. Her hair is also styled exactly how my mum did my hair circa 1978, braided and pinned on top. Or just braided as you can see below, my brother and I on my grandparents farm in Indiana.
Bessie is based on some very old illustrations in a story book dating from the early 1900s. Her dress is based on the outfits worn in these pictures. And below is Harriet in her wollen winter wonderland outfit, my first Molly Dolly with bent knees.
