Saundra Ros Altman's: Past Patterns
Paper Doll

Mary Harriet Beaty, my husband's great-great-grandmama born in 1807 and Sarah Berry, my great-great-grandmother, born in 1809 may have worn fashions like these.

Before cutting, glue the doll to stiff paper and name her after your great-great-grandmother.

The busk board, under her left hand, was slipped into a casing through an opening in the bottom of her stay. You may wish to make your own paper casing and slide the busk in place. See Past Patterns #001 in the Andrew Jackson era for a close up of the stay.
