This portrait doll of Coco Chanel was made by the Italian company, Lenci. She is a smoker. The photo, below, is how she was when Sue received her. Using the remnants of Coco's outfit as a guide/pattern, Sue made a new dress and underskirt for her, using the same type of fabric - felt and organza.

What do you do when a famous dress designer needs one herself?

Boudoir Doll Sighting - The Film "Speedy" - Harold Lloyd - 1928

Harold Lloyd, Ann Christy in "Speedy" 1928 - boudoir doll given away as prize at Coney Island.

Unfortunately, this YouTube film clip has the wrong music and repeats scenes and has scenes out of context so it doesn't represent the movie correctly. The Coney Island part of this movie, the way it originally was, was great! You might want to rent the DVD - Netflix has it. Anyway, boudoir doll starts at 3:54.........
