First of all, many thanks to Ghille for the poppet pattern and sorry if I say something wrong (english is not my main language)

Since I first saw a poppet I wanted to make one, they are so cute! So I asked for the pattern and though of making a girl, and mixed Ghille's pattern with some other doll patterns I already had, and this is the result.

I've embroidered her back and her arms as if they were tattooed and I made for her a medieval-like kind of dress. I'm very proud of her and, although it was not intended, she reminds me of the noblewoman of the Darkover books (which I really love) So I hope you like her too =)














Edit: I've post some instructions and pattern of the dress in page 6 =)

I love her.  Just everything about her.  It makes me what to read any books in which she even looks vaguely like a character.  Major major props.  Especially for her being your first one!! Shocked

You have every reason to be proud of your noblewoman. She is soooo beautiful. And have a gorgeous hair style.

And the jacket is fantastic on its own.
