I don't think you have met Claudine yet. She is old and French. Is that redundant? Let's just say that she does not prefer the company of Betty and Joan. I think she is wonderful. I use her to display my antique textiles. Her old linen fabric and rusty iron spring is a nice background.
When I brought her home Erik said-you are going to have to sew a new cover for her. I did protest at first...until I tried to put an antique dress on her and she snagged it everywhere. She will undergo partial breast reconstruction soon.
I will dye this linen as close as possible and make a new cover that will end at the waist.
I can't cover up her lovely number details!
