Dottie Dancer, Ballerina Ragdoll

I have been working on a doll for my grand-niece (my Grand-Aunt Bess made one for me) and when I had finished constructing her, I knew she must be a ballerina with the long arms and legs that she had.  Here she is dressed for the recital in her tutu and ballet shoes.  I may add some ribbon and flowers.

Doll's close up

She is ready for her close up.  She’s a bit cross-eyed but cute, I think.  Her features are embroidered except for her eyebrows and rosy cheeks which I put on with fabric markers.
