    i love your doll! she is really elegant and pretty and the fact, that she is very fragile and fine-“boned” is an extra plus! great job!

    Hi lilla, love your esther! ;-) Very, very lovely and stylish photos: you are an artist!

    Ps: Do you remember the coincidence when we both took the same fabric? When I saw your project it raise me a smile because I just finished my ‘esther’ cardigan. ;-)

      Oops! I clicked the wrong side…sorry!
      Irmchen, I can’t believe this thing…Perhaps we have a strange connection…. I named my doll Esther, because this is the name I chose to give to my first daughter, when I was a girl…Later arrived two sons!
      And about your “Ester” cardigan? Why this name?
