A few weeks ago I had a request via the website to make a christening doll for a well-loved niece. The customer sent me a photo of a christening doll she commissioned from a seamstress several years ago to give me some idea of what she was after. I love challenges like this! I designed a 56cm doll with a full-length dress and underskirt, and added some hand-embroidered wording in accordance with my customer’s wishes on the underskirt. Both the customer and I were very pleased with the result. One beautiful doll, gift wrapped and all ready for the christening on 7 October.
