**This doll is no longer available in our shop, but you can contact me for special orders.**

Who can resist that classic look from the 1920s? Josephine Baker’s slicked-back hair, face-framing curls, pencil-thin brows and that infamous banana skirt!

Josephine is one of my favorite things to crochet. I’m constantly improving her look and shape and adding more bananas LOL! (or in French mort de rire!). A few weeks ago I found the perfect accessory for my sweet Josephine. A lovely enamel charm with a bunch of bananas! I was thrilled! I added the charm as a necklace, but you can cut it off and use it for anything you like. Add the charm to your favorite bracelet, necklace, backpack,…whatever you wish.

Josephine Baker’s incredible life

As a teen, Josephine nearly perfected her skills in clubs and street performances to become a dancer at the Cotton Club in Harlem. Eventually, she went to Paris where everything clicked! They loved everything about her. She became a glamorous showgirl who wore her famous banana skirt in 1920s and ’30s, but she was much more! She won the Croix de Guerre for her part in the French resistance during WWII and was the only female speaker at the March on Washington in 1963. Josephine was an entertainer, civil rights activist, war hero and mother who never lost her courage or her sense of humor. [read more…]
