Finally! New Doll and Pattern

I had an inspiration and decided to make a doll from the original sketch I did for the Hoffman Challenge.  I am calling her Flirty Flora.  I really enjoyed designing her - she looks harder than she is!  The pattern contains two costuming versions - the petal skirt for those who like to sew and the scalloped skirt for those who don't! I also offer two hairstyles and two base styles.  The base on the Petal Skirted Flora is a wooden plaque with an embossed top.  The second version is made from Cardboard and is on the Scallop Skirted Flora.  I didn't have any more wooden bases when I got to her and didn't feel like getting in the car and driving, so I thought I would improvise.  Hope you like her.      There are 57 pages of directions (25 just for her face!) with 150+ photos and illustrations.  The patterns are being reproduced and should be available shortly.  Will let you know where and when.
Just incase you were curious, here is the original sketch.

Wow, these are both lovely. So expressive and I love the fabrics. Thank you for including the inspirational drawing. It's always fascinating to see how the dolls start out as a pencil sketch
