Summer was originally designed and
the pattern written in 1999, during my first year of pattern
writing. Looking back on some of my earlier patterns that have not
made the rank of retirement, I cringe. So at the beginning of 2009 I
decided to take some time here and there and rewrite these older
patterns in the style that I have evolved to through time and
experience. With Summer I have re-designed the doll herself, and
just her concept and look remains the same. It is now a much better
pattern and I hope you enjoy making this little doll!
Summer is 15", with a 3-piece head, articulated hands and sculpted
toes. Water color pencils are applied for her features which are
also needle sculpted. Summer's hair is made from unraveled sweater wool.
her costume is quick and easy!
