Preserving Original Doll Costumes

The silk has disintegrated on this French Rosalinde. The gown was painted-on silk with metallic lace. Sue is in the process of creating the same gown. First, she carefully removed the skirt and put it on a board. From the remnants, she will create a pattern. Then, comes the task of recreating the painted design.

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.........
