 Lady Liberty:  For 135 years she's been standing and watching over the New York Harbor.

She is also know by another name: the Mother of Exiles, symbolizing the United States as a nation of immigrants. She offers immigrants hope and comfort Freedom ...land of their dreams.

My ancestors came from Ireland in search of their dreams.

My adaptation of Lady Liberty is a truly detailed in her Edwardian fabric dress from 1910 and embellishments are antique/vintage finds.

 Lady Liberty is dressed in a star top and red/white stripe skirt with a open overlay skirt made from 1910 Edwardian fabric with a antique red/gold lace border at hem and waist. Sewn around her sleeves and collar is metallic gold trim, and an antique gold metallic eagle applique is sewn to the front of her dress top.  I made her a reversible cape with blue/white star fabric on the topside and red floral on the inside trimmed in vintage metallic lace on both sides. Cape is tied around her and can be removed.

 For her hair, I  made Lady Liberty's blonde viscose hair ringlets with a special method I use.  For her crown I used white star cotton fabric and added antique garland with a vintage metallic bullion star. Crown is sewn to her head and can not be removed.

Underneath her dress she is wearing lace trimmed star pantalets. She has red stripe legs and her shoes are white Victorian boots.   Lady Liberty is holding the flag I made from vintage flag ribbon.

She is 16 inches and comes with a handmade doll stand.
