Reproduction Brus made with a leather body in the Chevrot style are always lovely!  In the past, I've made Chevrot Brus in a 15" size, a 28" size, and a 30" size.  I hope to add a 20" size and 12" size sometime in the future.  Until I am able to make new dolls, please enjoy the photos below of Chevrot Brus and Bru reproductions I've made in the past.
