Dances with Butterflies in Doll Crafter & Costumer




Back in April I submitted pics of Dances with Butterflies for the gallery of Doll Crafter & Costumer. Instead, I was asked if I would like to do her as a pattern. I thought about it and decided to make a new doll 20% smaller than the original so the armature would be easier. I also modified her clothes a bit. Must admit, I think I like the new version better and this is the version that is in the magazine along with the complete pattern and instructions. Here are pics of the two side by side, original on the left. How exciting to see a doll in print! And the publisher did a great job. Love seeing the pics in color and the entire pattern plus the directions are the pull-out section.
