I finished my first doll from a vintage mail order pattern. She was pretty easy to sew, and I do love how she turned out!

She turned out beautiful! That is almost the same pattern I'm working with right now! Except I still have the face and hair to finish. I actually
bought some beige moleskin to make her in a more ethnic version.
  Was the pattern you used by "The Superior Pattern Co"?
If it's the same, it shows the doll in blue overalls with a heart on the front. I'm really curious!

I absolutely love the idea of using a pattern from the 1940's (or any vintage time period for that matter)

She turned out great!

  That's a great website! Thanks for the link... I sold my original pattern to someone in Great Britian. But I made a copy for myself. It's almost identical to yours, except for the clothes. Mine is 15" aprox. tall.
 I'll definitely post her, but the fabric I used is a little too pink. It was after all, a test!

Oh, wow, she has a brilliant face, and she's excellently-made. Smiley If you don't mind me asking, how did you put her hair in place? It looks great.

Thankyou for providing the eBay link, by the way - I really like 1940s patterns, and I can see that the seller has quite a few that I'll probably pick up.
