Hi!  I am very excited to show a sneak peak of Isabella!  She has a lovely new body shape that was designed by a very talented dollmaker - July Colby from Inviting Play.

This doll has dimensions similar to a 18" American Girl Doll, which opens up tons of possibilities for clothing!  The first outfit that I have made for Isabella is from a pattern for 18" dolls and it fits her very well.  The pattern for her dress was purchased from and Etsy shop called Avery Lane. I will be working on more clothing for Isabella - stay tuned for more fashion showings!

Isabella has a belly button and little bum cheeks!

Sitting in her undies, waiting for her dress to be made!! 


  1. Oh she is so sweet!! The size is great too! I've tried to clothe my dolls using an 18" pattern just to find the dolls are too small and I'm not good at altering patterns. Neither do I possess the ability to make clothes without a pattern.

    Do you make your own doll patterns?

  2. Thank you!! I do love this size! This particular doll pattern was designed by Julie Colby (from Inviting Play). She has her pattern available for sale in her Etsy shop. I have been making my own doll patterns for the most part, but I am glad I gave her pattern a try and learned some new techniques! For clothing, I have mostly worked from pre-existing patterns and altered them as needed for my doll's body shapes.
