Sarah Jane, A Christmas Party Girl in Red

SarahJaneHeadToToe This little party girl is Sarah Jane. Sarah is 17.5″ tall from the tip of her hat to the bottom of her feet. She has been made of muslin, stuffed with fiberfill & hand-painted & sanded many times giving her such a lovely, aged patina. Sarah Jane has been sealed with a combination of sealers so that she can be lightly dusted after display. Her lower torso is weighted allowing her to sit nicely. Her arms are wired, allowing them to be gently posed. Her neck is supported with wire armature.

Sarah has been painted with a variety of media. Her nose & bottom lip have been hand-sculpted. Her tiny fingers have been hand-sculpted as well. She wears tan painted gloves & brown boots with tan socks & red laces.

Sarah’s apron dress has been constructed from supple 100% cotton prints. I’m absolutely in love with them! Her blouse has been constructed from white muslin. It features hand-gathered sleeves & a chunky vintage button at the neckline. It was treated to a lavender bud/coffee bath for an aged appearance & was then hand-washed & pressed. This clothing features lots of hand-stitching. All hems have been hand-stitched as well as the neckline & back of Sarah’s blouse.

Sarah is also wearing the perfect party hat. It has been made from a tea-stained vintage hymnal page. The music on the party hat is a Christmas carol. It’s been strengthened with decoupage medium & is attached to Sarah’s head with thin chocolate ribbon. Tiny pins secure it in place.


Sarah’s little buddy is constructed of muslin. His ears have been attached separately. He has been hand-painted, sanded & aged. His hand-painted dowel rod “stick” has been secured in place with a touch of glue & stitching. This sweetie’s mane is 100% wool which has been needle-felted in place. This stick horse is 6.5″ tall.

This little girl’s hair is honey blonde mohair. It is parted & falls loosely to the side.
