Great job! did you follow a pattern?

yes  i did follow a pattern but the shoes where my own with a little help from the original pattern

Ooh- is she from TOYS TO KNIT? I have that book and have YET to make something from it. You did a magnificent job... I adore her ballet slippers! And great job on her hair (I always have the WORST time with the hair)! Beautiful beautiful doll!

yes she is with the exception of the shoes they are knitted and in teh book they tell you to do them crochet...... i think!!!!! i dont have the book any more......

You should get a scrap of tulle and make her a tutu. Smiley I bet it would be cute if you made your daughter a matching outfit, too.

yes i have been looking out for some pink tulle to make her a tutu..... i never thought about making her a matching outfit
but now its been suggested.......hhhhhmmmmmmmm

ive had some great comments from strangers too as my daughter has a habit of showing her off then announcing to the world
"my mammy made it just for me"

i used the back of the skirt for the back of the jacket and i cut out the front pieces from the front of the skirt keeping the hem from the bottom of the skirt (i hate doing hems so it just made sense to me)
