Dolls Then and Now

I spent some time today looking at the museums historic costume collection and it occurred to me that the dolls might offer some insights into how people dressed. So I got out some of the Victorian dolls to have a look. I thought you might like to see some images, what amazed me was the level of detail in the underwear, they even had little split bloomers and petticoats. Beautiful details but as you can see, compared to Fifi’s dolls rather scary!
