Kit for a charming 16th century-style Tudor doll.

This fabulous kit was developed using research undertaken to recreate the sixteenth-century-style doll on the cover of The Tudor Child book. The doll is based on several sources, including:
- Doll held by Catharina van Warmondt (1596), Isaac Claesz van Swanenburg, Museum Meermanno-Westreenianum, The Hague, Netherlands, inventory number 16/31
- Doll held by Arabella Stuart aged nearly two (1577), artist unknown, Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire
- Fashion doll, c1585 to 1590, Livrustkammaren, Stockholm, Sweden
- Doll held by Herzogin Marie von Sachsen als Kind (1564), Lucas Cranach the Younger, private collection

The kit makes one 29cm (11½ inch) doll - ready to dress.

• A pattern for the doll’s body and arms (including options for cloth head and hands)
• Cast resin head and hands sculpted by Michael Perry
• 100% linen fabric for the body
