∙Dressed in jacket, skirt, apron and wrap hat
Although this doll is dressed in carefully researched period clothing, the appearance is vastly different from 18th-century dolls. The most common dolls in the colonies during most of the period would have been simply carved wooden figures, sometimes with hinged arms and legs for posing.

I've had a collection of these cute Colonial Williamsburg cloth dolls from Merry Makers for years now. They are so cute to share with children, or for an older Colonial enthusiast to display on a bookshelf, and are a nice educational toy for kids learning about life in 18th century America. Eve wears a shift, pocket, stockings, shoes, shortgown/jacket, petticoat, apron, and headwrap. The quality is quite nice - the doll's outer garments are removable so she can be changed into other outfits, if a child desires, and everything is stitched and finished off well, with attention to detail that includes generous pleats on her petticoat and tiny stitches where her jacket would lace, with a functional velcro closure on the back. Her little face is lovely. Everything is made in a sturdy cotton fabric. I've recently noticed some chintzy, obvious knockoffs of these dolls being sold in and around Independence Park in Philly, and the difference in quality makes these dolls stand out all the more.
