A friend of mine is getting married in October and I wanted to make her something special. Smiley

I made a card to go along with her that says:

Something Old
-Her necklace was mine when I was little

Something New
-The fabric for her bodice and the lace for her sleeves were purchased brand new just for her

Something Borrowed
-Most of her skirt and veil were borrowed from a bag of dress up clothes

Something Blue
-A special message hidden on the bottom of her shoes

Anyway, I'm happy to introduce you guys to "Something Blue!"





She's smaller than my last doll. She's 18" tall.



She's jointed at the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees.


She had to have a garter, of course!


The message on the bottom of her shoes is my friend and her fiancee's name as well as their wedding date.



I hope you guys like her (but I really hope my friend likes her!)

This is a beautifully made doll with a lot of special details. And her face is so expressive and expectant! Great job.
