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.

They Don't Get Any Nicer Than Linda Sweetness! - Victorian Lady Doll

“Linda Sweetness" is a 16" Victorian faceless lady doll who is wearing an 1850 Street Costume.

They don't get much sweeter or nicer than "Linda Sweetness."  She just loves to help wherever she can with whatever she can. If she can do it she will. If she can't she'll try to find someone who can.

Linda Sweetness is a 16" free-standing Victorian doll all ready for her afternoon stroll and is wearing an 1850 street costume. Her outfit is the latest in Paris fashions and straight off the runways, but that doesn't faze Linda Sweetness. Clothes and fashion are niceties in life, but there are more important things to be concerned with. Like gentleness, sweetness, kindness, humanitarianism, and tenderness. Talk about that and you will get her attention.

She has a lined 2-tier jacket that is tied at the waist with a ribbon bow and has lace ribbon trim along the sleeve edges. Her 3-tiered lined shawl is tied at the neck as is her lined bonnet. Her print dress is lace trimmed dress with long lace trimmed and gathered sleeves. A gathered ribbon trim is wrapped around the waistline of her dress. She is wearing her finest lace gloves and lace trimmed slip. Linda Sweetness's hair is styled in long blonde ringlets with ringlets bangs that frame her face. She is holding a lace trimmed parasol. Her arms are wire-shaped and covered. She also has a painted wood head and covered round wood base. Her inner body is made from a dowel covered with fabric and eyelet lace.
