They look way cute. Now I really have to try. With those long legs I'm seeing a ballerina.

okay doke...here's what I have so far....


I put her eyes a little closer together..I think for this type of doll..farther apart would be better..like your pattern.. One thing..now that she's stuffed...is maybe sewing a seam across the top of her legs so she can sit if she wants...another thing..not sure what to do with the feet.. thought of painting little maryjanes on her but not sure about the heel..what do you think?

I used a little Popsicle stick in the neck..seems to work well and I think the idea of sewing all around the head and making a neck hole after would work well....I liked cutting the hole in after and stuffing it in.

I'm wanting to try make her hair look like the anime type hair..
edit:finished the hair..what do ya think?

Love the hair, fits the eye spacing really well.

I think the one stuffed thru the top of the head looks better shape-wise, and was probably easier to stuff, not just attach as you said. Ok. I should be of work in a few hours, will have a go at it later tonite.

I think that because of the doll's large head (and it gets even larger with hair) I am going to make her feet bigger, to make her less top heavy.  I like the long legs, but I will probably incorporate places to stitch at the knees and the top of the thighs to make her floppier and allow her to sit (thanks for the suggestion, sunflower!)  If I do that, tho, then the jointed arms seem out of place.  hmmm.  I could make a straight arm that bends at the elbow and is sewn into place. 



I don't really like the stiff arms of the smaller doll, how they stick out like that; it's hard to dress so I don't want to do that.  I may also move the waist down.

My main thing is that I want her to look good in clothes and I want clothing to be easy to make.  This means she must have a neck and shoulders and nice long legs and be large enough for the clothes sewing to be easier.

What do you think?

Honestly?  I really like her legs the way the are...long and thin.  I don't think having her arms stiff and her legs bendy would look odd at all..since she'll be dressed. But having her sit would be something I would really like. I found the half sized Popsicle stick worked really well and her head is nice and stiff..but not sure how she would be with yarn.  I also think having it bend at the elbow would be kinda neat too.

I really really like the doll. Smiley  

edit:   I really like the attachable arms.  I mean I like the feet the way they are.

Honestly?

thank you for your honesty!  I think I am so used to being criticized at school (and it being the good kind that makes my projects better) that I want it here too. 

I'm going to work on a bendy, jointed arm.
