 Inspirations: ...
 Herstory: All dolled up to charleston the night away...
 The Critics: A much more “primitive’ doll than any of the others we have seen, this pattern doesn’t lend itself well to involved costuming. It is difficult to see what else Merle could have done to clothe her in this period, apart from adding feathers or fringing.
It seems to me that the doll needs to stand or, at the very least, be seated on something and it certainly helps to have posable arms (as Merle used on her other doll).
That said, I think Merle captured the Twenties look well with the painted face and hair, sequin headband.
The little sequinned shoes are a nice touch.
