Her favorite color was pink

Fantastic news! A new doll will be available in my little etsy shop within the next couple of days!

Here is a preview...

I love how this dress came out, it's so cute with the little white dress underneath. You can display the pink "prairie" dress open or closed!

I was recently reminded how Dawn's favorite color was pink, by asking her parents. Then this dress design just popped into my head. I wanted something dreamy, maybe because it was one of those vague memories/details I feel like I should have remembered.

After fiddling with the pattern and sizes a bit, I think I'm really loving how it came together. The addition of the teeny, tiny buttons (glad I have small hands) and a pink ribbon in her hair, make it just too cute.

I create my own patterns using Adobe Illustrator. I do prototypes to help adjust them, then I sew them up. I learn something new each time, not just about doll creation, but about how I've handled losing a dear friend to Cystic Fibrosis.
Thank you for stopping by to share all of this with me, I hope you enjoy what you see!
