Etsy seller Bit of Whimsy had a 50 percent off sale. I stocked up on a few patterns and of course started sewing way.  Her stuff always turns out so cute. The first doll is modeled after my daughter. The other doll is the Jane Austin doll. I love her vintage look and feel.

Finally, inspired by these patterns, I tried to make me own ballerina doll pattern. The first one I tried was the one in the black leotard. Her neck looked too long so I cut her head off and then resewed it on. I added the lace trim to kind of hide the triage as best I could:) I thought her legs were a bit thin so I added some girth with the second doll in pink She turned out fine but I think she needs a bigger head or something! Any suggestions? I want to create a pattern that's super cute not just ok.

Love them!!! I Really like the one of your daughter, and the ballerinas. But when i was looking at the second to last picture of the ballerinas, i was like why are her arms so long (cause the arm lined up perfectly with the other leg)  duh brain fart. Anyways they are great. I'll have to check out her patterns.
