Special Order

I have just completed a special order for a customer who wants a doll of a specific size and proportions to correspond with the size and proportions of a certain very popular American play doll designed for girls in the older age group (7 - 10). The customer wants to make the doll herself, but needed help with the head and designing the body. Here is the head blank I created for her and I custom-designed a jointed cloth body to match this head. I have sent the customer the body pattern and instructions along with the head blank.
While I was working on this I had to do a bit of research to find out measurements etc. I'm pretty happy with the design I came up with which is more or less an enlarged version of this:


Here is the sculpted head I made for this special order:




I'm looking forward to some feedback when my customer completes the doll!

Wow, much nicer than those mentioned American produced dolls :-) She is lovely :-)

I understand the products obliquely alluded to are well-made and much loved by their owners, but most of the faces of said dolls seem bland (apart from the Helen Kish ones, now discontinued) and the bodies are unrealistically dumpy

Your doll, however, is simply gorgeous. I love the nose and the sensitive little pout.

It looks great already, I hope to see how it looks when done.
