When my at the time 3 year old saw Frozen, she was in love with Elsa and wanted and Elsa doll. So I tried to find one to buy and there was none! Not a single Elsa to be found anywhere. So I decided to make one. I made the one with the darker dress for my daughter but I always felt that it wasn't quite right. I hated that I couldn't get the colors quite right, I coudn't figure out the slit and I still wasn't sure about the doll pattern I made. Fast forward a year and my niece has asked for one too. I found a better color of yarn and decided to go with white where the lighter blue used to be and made the second Elsa. This Elsa is less flexible - can't sit and knees don't bend - I'm still not sure of the pattern (my next version of the doll had a smaller head). But flexibility was something that the long dress took away in the first doll anyway. Overall though, I like both the dolls and I hope you do too.
