Looks like Madeline

But it wasn't intentional. I followed this free pattern by Mimi Kirchner at The Purl Bee.

I followed the pattern for the most part, but not the face, and not the clothes. Instead I put cashmere clothes on the doll (sooooo soft!) and a face that wasn't so Frida Kahlo. But, it turns out I made her more Madeline.

Anyway, it took months, because the body was hand sewed, and I'd bring it to the girls' swimming lessons this spring, and spend 1/2 hour at a time sewing. So it took months. And here it is, June, and I've finally finished!

Q5 really liked her, but I'm giving her to a new baby, born in December.

Oh, and C6 made a shawl for her, too!
