The definition: 'a lady's private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room'. Boudoir is also used in photography as a term that describes implied nudity/ revealing glimpses of a lady's undergarments, while still dressed.
Historically, the boudoir formed part of the private suite of rooms of a lady adjacent to her bedchamber, for bathing and dressing
(the female equivalent of the male cabinet). The boudoir later became used as a private drawing room for embroidery or to entertain intimate acquaintances.
The pattern for Pampered Polly (above) is available exclusively from my book Fiddly Little Fingers and Tricky Toes
~ Artist’s Vision for Soft Sculpture Figure ~
She’s my atypical version of a boudoir doll. I imagined the blissful expression on Polly’s face as she enjoys a pampering session of nail treatments and facial. Her slightly sun-bronzed complexion also denotes a visit to the solarium. Whilst her attire consists of towelling robe and head towel; to further the theme of luxurious indulgence, as well as for modesty,
she has sexy, black, lacy underwear.
