I have two sizes of German lady dolls that I make (three are photographed but I no longer offer the smallest size).  All three use an authentic reproduction German lady body with its very distinctive "wasp" waist and well-shaped bust.   If you're looking for a new doll to make a wardrobe for, this lady might be it!  

The largest doll, shown in the photo to the left, is a reproduction of a 16" Kestner 162 doll.  The second doll shown in the photo is about 13" tall.  She is a reproduction of a Simon & Halbig 152 character doll....a very rare antique doll to find!  Patterns for both these dolls are available from multiple sources.  Susan Sirkis is one source (www.susansirkis.com).  She has a DVD called "Edwardian and After" (her item # WBR9) to make a complete wardrobe for the Kestner 16" doll shown (or your 16" antique German lady doll).  The DVD also offers the same outfits for an 18" German lady and a 12" German lady.  The 12" patterns on Susan's DVD will fit the Simon & Halbig 152 lady doll (shown below).

16" Kestner 162 German Lady Doll.  Shown above is one completed Kestner 162 German lady doll and one Kestner 162 head.  One has blue-gray glass eyes and the other has brown glass eyes.  As described in the section above, a doll like this was used by Susan Sirkis to develop her wonderful Edwardian patterns.  Complete doll, as shown, is $275.  Head only is also available, if you prefer.
