After making a tiny (4") replica Izannah Walker doll, I couldn't wait to have a go at making a full size one. Here are some pictures of the work thus far. Next job will be to paint the doll and then make the clothes. There are a few things 'wrong' with this doll - the feet are too big and bulky (the original Izannah dolls have dainty little feet with painted boots) but she's stuck with them - I'll alter the pattern when I make the next one. Also, the proportions are not quite right - on the originals, the head appears to be relatively large, but I can live with this.
The pencilled-in features are only temporary - just to help with the placement.
