Well, I finished up my vintage dolls, and LOVE them. I made them small for this swap, which was a challenge but fun. It is "Melanie" a pattern by Judy M. Johnson, she reminds me of my older sisters when they were about 4 yrs old from pics I have of them back in the 50's/60's. I made her with a little 'kickstand' like the old paper dolls, so they would stand up, and then I made her two outfits that are removable, even have the old fashioned paper dolls 'tabs' on them to fold on the clothes, remember? And she comes with 3 additional outfits that the recipient can color and create if they like.
The outfits are a little coat and hat, like the felted wool sets worn in the 50's/60's, and I have it embeliished with very tiny rhinestone flowers and gold-rimmed buttons, a little rhinestone on her purse button tab and on her shoe clips. I mean tiny too. And then she has a houserobe with itty bitty buttons, and a flocked teddy bear.
