Here's Lucy Birch. She is the third 9 inch Waldorf Type Baby doll I've finished. She the "model doll" that I use when I design new clothes. I probably should cut her hair a bit shorter since she is a baby, but I like this blonde bob on her!
Because I designed the pattern for this doll, I also have to draft patterns for her clothing. I don't have any formal training in pattern design so the clothes are often more of a challenge than designing the doll!
Lucy Birch is a baby doll. So she needed diapers, not under pants. Her diapers are a layer of quilting cotton on the outside and a fine fleece on the inside. I used fold over elastic at the waist and a strip of folded ribbon with Velcro® stitched on to make the closures.
I'll share some baby girl outfits in another post!
