Topsy Turvy doll

What was your source for this sewing project? Other Tell us more about what inspired you. Laura Wheeler Awake/Asleep Topsy Turvy What are you most proud of? The hair took a long time to stitch in place, and I had to adapt the instructions in the pattern to get a good coverage on the head. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The bodice and sleeves of the clothes patterns didn't fit the doll, so I had to increase the size of them. Also don't snip to close into the neckline as mine came away slightly when trying to stuff the neck firmly. if I made another one I would sew a gentler curve for the jaw line, as it looks a bit strange on the finished face.
