A Doll A Week 26/52: Patsy

This is Effanbee Patsy.  She is 13" tall and has probably been here about as long as Hitty Rachel Raikes.  She only has a few outfits, but I love her 1930's style.  I made this dress for her using a pattern I found in a Doll Reader magazine.  It was one of the first doll dresses I'd made, and I really wanted to do a good job.  I love how it turned out - perfect for summer!  Patsy is a quiet girl and is always happy to make do with whatever we have.  She was one of the first in our family to think about recycling, but her idea was to save every little piece of string or paper in case we needed it for something later!

Hoping everyone has a wonderful Independence Day!

Hi Jen, Your Patsy is so cute. That is a grand dress she is wearing. You did a fantastic job with your first dress! I had a quiet 4th indoors. I didn't go anywhere or watch any TV.
