…The WPA Book and Pattern…

Judi Ward has just reissued
The Wonderful WPA Book and Pattern!

Judi is starting a new series of patterns titled the "Bent Neck Brigade".


This book is full of history and pictures of the "real" WPA dolls and the resulting dolls made from the pattern and directions passed the WOW test at the Milwaukee Peoples Museum where Judi Ward did her research.

Judi has reprinted 25 copies of this 70 page book. The book will be 3 hole punched letter sized paper so you can put it all in a binder. No hard cover.

There is no plastic, formed face mold with this re-issue but it is not needed to make a truly wonderful doll. Included are instructions for using a big, vinyl doll head instead of the vacu-formed face or you can make the whole face in simple cloth, which is the way Judi's doll was first designed and made.

Check out Judi's PictureTrial Site WPA album for some designing pictures. The doll there is an all cloth face version. The face pattern in the book is the updated and improved cloth face. Lots of pictures of the full construction too.

WPA Book and Patterns

One 70 page Book with 3 double sided 11" X 17" pattern pages which includes 2 adorable 1930s style outfits designed from pictures of real WPA doll clothes.

WPA BOOK and patterns….$32.00 postage paid to all contiguous USA locations. Alaska, Hawaii, and foreign locations will have extra postage to be determined at time of order.

Abigail Anne Asbury

Abigail Anne Asbury is a delightful "Flapper" doll, with style and sophistication. She is designed using the techniques taught in Judi Ward's Design Your Own Dollclasses (beginner and advanced.) But not everyone takes the classes, soooo, here she is in pattern form.

And AHHHH! what a self-important and imperious look she has on her face, she just knows she is the "Bee's Knees"!
