Navy is good on her, I think.

This most recent commissioned Izannah doll is the second for this collector.  The last was the little red-head in green, but this time she wanted brown hair, brown eyes, and a blue dress.  (On my Etsy listing, I have a menu of choices.)  I debated on what color blue--I have an insane amount of fabric to choose from, having collected it for years.  But this deep blue seemed to match her pensive expression.  I try not to make my Izannahs look sad, but it happens sometimes, given a head start with that downcast gaze.  This one, I can't tell if she's sad or just really thoughtful.  Eye of the beholder, I guess.  Anyway, I liked the deep blue, and it was fun dressing her.  Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend.

  1. No, she's not sad...just deep in thought! I love her brown eyes; all of my dolls have them. She is just lovely in her beautiful new dress.

  3. She is a fine doll, sweet and peaceful. I don't see sadness either, but most of Izannah's dolls do look a tad on the sad side. I think it's the downcast eyes, and the nature of the painting. Most have dark eyes that have a luster to them. and also the small smile. You chose a beautiful color dress and style for her. Of course, you know I think you make the most beautiful hands too.
