AFRICAN AMERICAN COUPLE DOLL SET

I've been working on the male doll for the last week. He is wearing a white cotton shirt and brown linen overalls. The straw hat was purchased and not hand made. I haven't learned the art of making straw hats yet. This was a custom order for a lady that purchased the girl doll.

MY FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN MALE DOLL~ FOLK ART DOLL~

I've been busy working on my first African American male doll. I'm making him a pair of overalls. He has on the toile muslin of the overalls to check the fit. I need to make a couple of adjustments and then on to the sew his overalls.  He will have a cotton or linen shirt and possible hat. I'm not sure what color to make the overalls yet. He may look good in a lighter color...not sure.
