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.

This Stunning Beauty Is Kimberly Anne! - Victorian Lady Doll

“Kimberly Anne” is a 13” Doll Victorian faceless lady doll who is wearing an  1876 Promenade Costume.

Kimberly Anne is a beautiful Victorian lady from a long line of beautiful ancestors. Her great grandmother was a stunning and beautiful woman as was her grandmother and her mother. However, despite their beauty her mother and grandmother always believed that inner beauty was more important than outside beauty and tried to instill this quality in Kimberly Anne.

"Kimberly Anne" is a 13" free-standing Victorian doll all ready to show off her fancy new outfit. She is wearing her favorite 1876 Promenade Costume. She has a fancy multiple layered lace & ribbon trimmed satin dress with lace trimmed & gathered sleeves, fancy lace & ribbon trimmed overskirt decorated in the back with wired ribbon bows, and lace & ribbon trimmed waistband. Her lace & ribbon trimmed lined bonnet has silk floral accents in the back and feathers. Her lined and fringed shawl is wrapped around her shoulders and arms. Her slip is lace trimmed and her long long curly blonde hair is tied in the front with ribbons. She is carrying a lined and lace & ribbon trimmed parasol accented with silk floral. 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. Silk ribbons adorn the dress and sleeves.

I just LOVE how she turned out.
