This is my FOLLIES SHOWGIRL cloth doll e-pattern in a digital PDF you download. She stands 17 inches tall (22" with headdress) & wears a vintage style showgirl costume. Illustrated instructions include all that you see: doll body, face sculpting & coloring, costume with headdress & "tail". The legs are cut "in one" with the body (arms & head are separated pieces). High heel shoes are designed into the feet. The body & legs have a wire armature you make, so it stands by itself, glued to a wooden base.
Also, instructions for both feather and non-feathers are given. Plus instructions for adding beads and embellishments.
This doll is a good basic doll body you can costume yourself, as well. Recommended fabric: Deer Suede or Craft velour. This doll pattern is for intermediate doll makers with some experience making dolls.
GREAT pattern! Well written and with step by step detailed instructions. Highly recommended!

I was not only intrigued by the wonderful artistry but by the difference in making the doll. I'm looking forward to attempting to making her. The directions look clear enough to me.
