The Wonderful World of Fashion Dolls!
Kathleen has just finished one of her first forays into the fashion doll world…
Introducing ‘MONARCH’… A former 16″ ‘Gene Marshall’ repaint that has been completely restyled.
Inspired by Paris Haute Couture and Marie Antoinette, the gown is a lavish pannier-style affair
of black lamé brocade, pleated satin and tulle, and ruched silk lamé to resemble feathers.
It closes with snaps in the back, and comes with a pannier style petticoat to hold it’s shape.
Her factory paint has been completely removed and re-painted with the finest artist quality paints
and sealers. Her hair has been re-rooted and styled in a magnificent bouffant.
MONARCH comes complete with doll, gown, petticoat, back-seam stockings, Louis xiv heels,
ruffled tulle cape, silk panties, and black rhinestone choker.
Available only through EBAY here… MONARCH
