Diana, Princess of Wales..Yet another comission for Fran and I for another royal watcher on the Bruce Penninsula. Diana, the People's Princess wears the dress she danced in with John Travolta at the White House. The mold, Diana by Donna Rubert was flawed as the head had a very short childs' neck and was unsuited for a grown woman.

Also a collaboration with Fran Constant. This portrait doll was of Madeline Heuton of Lion's Head when she was a 7 year old child in a wedding party. Madeline is the blonde child in the black and white picture. The dress was in fact Madeline's flower girl dress reduced to fit. Mold used was" Kayla" by Dianna Effner
