This is an amazing exhibit!

You can't believe how long I have searched for information about authientic Indian dresses.
I am an artist making soft sculpture. Almost all of my designs have won awards in the doll shows, even though no one has ever seen the type that I make before. I am honoring my grandmother b. 1867 and who had only 2 dresses that I know about.
Thank you so much. Jo-an
