Taking it from the top
The flesh tone used here is DMC cotton floss #950--I usually use #948 for females but needed a darker value to contrast with the white of the hat and apron. The nose was stitched with DMC floss #3774 and the mouth and cheeks were worked with DMC floss #223 and 224. Her gray-green eyes were stitched with DMC floss #926.
The top of her cap was worked in framed mosaic stitches with the white perle cotton and trimmed with some "vintage" Fleur de Paris fine mesh velour from my stash. I raided the stash for the hair as well, using two strands of DMC Medici wool. I'll finish the bottom of the hair when her shawl is completed.
