A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
Hopefully the images will be a visual supplement to the words in the pattern instructions. The dress seen on the doll was made from vintage lightweight wool fabric, trimmed with vintage Swiss embroidery. Most of the hat garnishments are vintage. The shirring on the dress and hat were done by hand. For added inspiration, a picture of her shoes are included.
