My Latest doll

Hello everyone, I have made a doll from Dixie Redmond's doll class pattern and one from another pattern that i have changed a million times over the years. So for those of you who thought i didnt need to take Dixie's Doll Class, I wanted to show you the difference a great pattern makes! The doll on the left is The Dixie pattern, and the one on the right is a revised Sue Farmer Pattern (which is a great pattern in its own right).They will both be super dolls, and of course neither are near being finished, but the Dixie doll is a better "Izzy" Doll by far. I feel, that through Dixies pattern i have learned a lot, "a really alot" ( : D ) !!!!! I can only imagine what we will learn in the actual class. I am so excited about this fact and wanted to share with other doll makers and doll lovers!!!!!! Thank You Dixie for giving me the chance to test your pattern! This pattern is very simple and so easy to understand.
Many Hugs,
Jackie

They're both going to be lovely. Do you sculpt the heads from paper clay? I'm so ignorant about these type of dolls. But I'm smitten with their charm.

Linda,
Yes, paper clay. Oh i know you are so talented but you should try paper clay, i think you'd love it!
