Jessica is a beautiful doll who can sit very well, but cannot walk or even really stand up. She began as a test pattern for an infant baby style of doll. I learned a lot about how the fabric that is used for the skin will behave quite differently when it is cut on the bias. Instead of the chubby infant legs I was expecting, they stretched out long and thin when they were filled with wool. Rather like a young girl's legs instead of a young baby. Except the legs are bent in such a way that does not really allow for standing.
Even though her legs are not quite right for a young girl or for an infant, but something in between, I felt compelled to finish this doll. So, I made a dress for her with a beautiful vintage lace trim and polka dot pants with matching trim. And I put my Roses And Cream logo on the bottom of her foot with my new stamp and fabric ink. Cute!
Her hair is made with a lovely soft yarn in the colors of the sunset.
I am hoping to find a home for her where she will be loved, so I am planning to set up a giveaway for her from my facebook fan page when I reach 200 likes on my page!
