Girl doll

I made some more changes to the pattern and made a little girl doll. I have to do some more work on the hands and feet. I'm not at all satisfied with the shape of the hands, too thin - I tried a pointing index finger here on one hand. As for the feet, somewhere along the way, I've lost the heels! I do like her happy face, but I think I need a chin gusset, as that dart makes a point if the fabric is not soft enough or does not have enough 'give'. Instead of joining the legs together right through the body, I joined each one to the centre and gave her a 'belly button'.

It doesn't matter - I need the practice. And if I make her some clothes, my grandchildren will play with her!

I'm waiting for some more of the fabric I made the twins with, the fabric I made this doll with is really too thick and stiff, but fine for practicing on.
