I have loved dolls, history, and the Victorian Era since I was little and can credit my grandmother for that. As a young girl she gave me a Godey’s Fashion print for August 1870 from my great, great Aunt Flossie. I was captivated by the dresses and became hooked. I just love to research everything and anything about the Victorian Era. I also love to design Victorian dolls. I hope you enjoy my Victorian Dolls, Victorian Traditions,The Victorian Era, and Me blog.

Flossie May Just Wants To Be A Doctor! - Victorian Lady Doll

“Flossie May”is a 16” Victorian faceless lady doll who is wearing an 1892 Traveling Costume.

Flossie May is a book worm and very studious. She is hoping to be the class valedictorian when she graduates from college and wants to be the first doctor in the family. So, she spends a LOT of time at the library and studying. However, that doesn't mean that she doesn't like a little fun here and there.

"Flossie May" is a16" free-standing Victorian doll who is all ready for traveling and is wearing her 1892 traveling costume. She has a full-length lace and ribbon trimmed 2-sectional lined jacket with lace, ribbon trimmed and puffed up long sleeves. Lace and ribbon trim adorns the waistline of the jacket. Her lined hat is lace and ribbon trimmed and has a ribbon floral in the back. Her lace trimmed dress is tied at the waistline with a ribbon that is fastened in the back with a bow and decorated in the front with a silk floral. She has a fashionable button pendant on the top of her dress. Her dark black hair with bangs is tied in a bun. Her arms are wire-shaped and covered and she is carrying a bouquet of silk flowers with streamers. She also has a painted wood head and a covered wood base. Her inner body is made from a dowel covered with fabric and eyelet lace.
