In my mixed media/art club, we had a "Black & White" challenge. (This club is for all type of art -- not just dolls.)
I had lots of ideas for a black and white theme, but I kept coming back to "zebra". To me, a ZEBRA print is the epitome of glamour, high camp, and a bold statement. I mean, when you wear zebra, everyone is looking at YOU!
This style of coat is called a "Cocoon" Coat, and is from one of my favorite periods - the "Teens". 1910 to 1918 is the period "My Fair Lady" is done in. Also - "Downton Abby" and "Titanic".
This doll is about 22 inches tall, so I was lucky to find a zebra print in this scale (it also has a small nap to it).
Hats of that period were either very tall, or very wide.
I added the red jewel just to throw off the color scheme a bit.
