Polly is a cloth doll, with a cloth head covered and sculpted in paperclay, painted with acrylics and sealed. She has Tibetan lambswool hair, dyed in kool aid. (generic, but it's just as bright as the real deal). Her body and limbs are sewn from hand-dyed (with tea, actually ) cotton, She wears green dupion silk knickers, a cotton lawn waist slip and a dress of ivory dupion silk and embroidered tulle lace over green tulle (Thanks, Cindy!), with a green satin ribbon sash. Oh, and little black glove leather dancing shoes.

She was fun to make, which, I guess, is the most important thing. She's nice to play with, too,
