I've the poppet pattern for over a year and half and just finally got around to making one. My little 4 year old daughter saw her when I had just finished her hair and told me: "She's a teenager." And I realized how right she was.
To begin with I had let my daughter pick the hair color. Miss Poppet (she is at the moment nameless) decided she didn't like the color. Of course this was decided until her hair was at least halfway done and I refused to start over. So we compromised and she got streaks up front. (In case you can't tell from the picture her hair is navy blue with light blue and purple streaks).
Then she had to have this fancy dress (which was somewhat of a pain to sew). She, however, as a complex about her shoulders and so I had to make a shrug to cover them. Then of course she needed jewelry, so a necklace was made. And she refuses to wear shoes.
Oh, and standing she is 17 inches tall. (My fabric was a little on the stretchy side.)
(She's got a lot of hair and it's hard for her to hold up her head.)
