This is the Butterick pattern # 3490 for a simple rag doll.
For the body, I had some rayon lining fabric which I sewed wrong-side out. I did the facial features in embroidery and made a yarn hairdo. The hairdo is a new technique for me, with woven strands of yarn. A tedious process but nice results!

Here’s the doll with completed body.
Last, here she is in new dress, with fancy knickers and red felt boots.
