Her black nylon hair is in two plaits coiled over her ears. She has a small cap of red shiny cootn edged with a white lace frill. She is wearing a stiff cotton dress. This has a blue bodice with yellow and white fringings and long puffed sleeves edged with narrow white ric rac braid. The dress fastens with three cotton ties at the centre back. The red shiny cotton skirt is edged at the hem with another band of the yellow and white braid. Over the skirt is a long cotton waist apron with a band of the yellow and white braid across it and edged on three sides with the white ric rac braid. Beneath the dress are brief white shiny cotton knickers. She has white cotton socks and white plastic slip on shoes.
