Welcome to Sylvie – She’s Wearing My Dress!

5 Feb

Bonjour, mes amies!

Here is my first new wee Mini Corolline – all lovely and clean after a bath. I washed her hair carefully and then very foolishly combed it while wet. She had a parting that meant that you could put her hair in bunches – but I have basically ruined this by brushing her hair. I have painstakingly tried to fix this (only partially successfully) – but I will learn from my mistake and never do that again!


I have decided to name her Sylvie and she is wearing the dress I adapted from my favourite pattern by Sylvie of PoupeesdeSyl. You can find my tutorial here.


I used 3.25 mm knitting needles and the yarn is Woolcraft Baby Care 4 ply shade 706 (Mint) and the contrast is Stylecraft Life 4 ply shade 2357 (Aqua).


I designed the shoes myself based on a pattern by Laurence for an Itty Bitty doll – I used a size 3 mm crochet hook and added an extra row of double crochet before the shaping.


Sylvie’s hair is very soft and shiny now and I am pleased that I washed it – I just wish I hadn’t brushed it!


I think Sylvie looks very cute and I love her blue, blue eyes.


[Merci à Sylvie pour ton message quand je n’étais pas là – tes bons mots m’ont encouragé à revenir.]


Passez une bonne journée, à bientôt …

    Her eyes are the same blue as her dress and I don’t know how she was supposed to look before her shampoo but now she is lovely.

    A very pretty dress for a lovely girl. The eye colors of Sylvie is in perfect harmony with the colors of her dress. Her hair is beautiful, a really pretty little miss.
