The suggester said: "I absolutely love all the details and textures the artist was able to incorporate into this doll. All the layers of clothing she incorporated without the work looking bulky is also incredibly impressive."

Did you happen to write down your free handed work as you did it, so that there is a pattern?
This is really quality work. Very good! Beautiful!
You have a lot of skill, how long have you been crocheting? I have been crocheting ever since December of 2009. Where did you learn how to shape things like her dresses/gowns, or did you just learn it by trial and error? (The reason I ask is because I'm trying to learn how to shape clothing because I want to make a skirt for myself and no matter what I do, whether I take appropriate measurements or not, the thing always ends up too large or too small...)
Oh! And YOU'RE WELCOME!!!
I learned to crochet about three years ago, because I wanted to make a toy Dalek for a friend. Never stopped since then. Doll clothes are easy because they are so small, if the fit is not right it's not too many stitches to rip and make again. I wouldn't know how to size the real thing, never made anything for myself that needed much fitting, shawls are fun and good for any size.
