A friend of mine asked me to create a pattern for her of a dress that was once worn by Madame Alexander “Cissy” dolls. She sent me her doll and the fabrics she wanted it made of for the pattern cover. It took a great deal of time to design the pattern because all I had were pictures to work with. But in the end, it really turned out nice! Cissy used to be such a glamorous doll in her day!
