Sybil Ludington: Know as "The Female Paul Revere"
Sybil is the youngest of historical heroines and on April 26, 1777, at age 16, Sybil Ludington
American patriot made an all-night horseback ride to alert militia forces in the towns of Putnam County, New York, and Danbury, Connecticut, of the approach of British forces.

*****

Sybil is dressed in a  primitive blue flag print cotton fabric with prim rick rack border at hem, and collar.  She has a vintage hand dyed red, white and blue ribbon sash fastened with an silver tinsel. 

Sybil's hair is black viscose and tied it into a single braid. I made her a paper hat and added cockade  made of vintage flag ribbon and vintage metallic bullion star. Hat is pinned to her head and can be removed.

Underneath her dress she is wearing trimmed pantalets. She has blue and tan stripe legs and her shoes are black boots.  I made a primitive flag for Sybil to hold.  

She is 13 inches and comes with a handmade doll stand.
