This Molly Dolly is called Claudia Meringue. This lovely doll is definitely an exercise in nostalgia and happy memories, she is exactly the kind of doll I loved as a child.
After doll making my mum moved onto clothes and knit wear, when she and her two partners retired a few years ago I inherited some wonderful scrap bags dating from the 1970s through to the 1990s, I also have my own collection of fabric from the 1930s to 1980s. Claudia Meringue's skirt is made from a beautiful vintage strawberry print Liberty tana lawn. She is made from dark brown linen and has green cotton hair. I love her top with little yellow pockets and her pom pom necklace, Claudia wears hot pink felt shoes, all clothes are removable.
Claudia Meringue's face is hand embroidered with some felt details, I use coloured threads and raw edges as design details, for example the duck egg blue / fluorescent orange to sew the seams. She is polyester filled and approx. 22" or 56 cm tall.
Claudia Meringue would make a wonderful heirloom gift or display doll for your home, she is happy to be played with but is not recommend for young children due to small parts and delicate details.
