Item details

Ideal for the intermediate to advanced seamstress/seamster who wants to learn how i put my fully articulated dolls together, but wants to create their own costume. If you've never sewn before or don't have a machine, i'd recommend starting with something a little less complicated.

Extant of the same full-color, 25-page fully illustrated PDF document in my Crow Art Doll Kits, which may be used with any busts or hands/feet sets listed here in my shop that are marked "Bodkin A Compatible." The only difference with this pattern is that it is for the body only and does not include costume patterns or instructions. For the fully costumed version, see:

The model for these instructions is my Anthro Rabbit Doll #8, which can be found here:

Please note also that this listing is for the pattern only; no fabric or parts are included. The last image is a digital collage of a few of the pages, the rest of the images shown in this listing are actual images from the PDF. This listing is for the digital file alone, which will be emailed to the address specified in the "Note to Seller" (or to the email provided by Etsy for the buyer's contact info by default).

Testimonial from fellow Etsian megbear99, who bought my very first copy:
"Took me a while to get to feedback for this pattern, probably because I was so overwhelmed by the beauty of it that I wanted to hug it close to me for a while. Clear instructions with good photos and a conversational style of writing. Easy to follow. Food for thought for more advanced doll makers, but probably written well enough that a determined beginner will make a passable animal from it. I'm going to love working with this pattern!"

Great pattern - the directions have some interesting techniques for jointing. Can't wait to get enough time to assemble the doll
