Audrey's Doll

I was never big into dolls growing up. If I'm remembering correctly my sister and I each had a Cabbage Patch doll for awhile, but mostly we were more into Legos and playing practical jokes on our little brother than playing with the dolls. Nonetheless, I decided it was time Audrey had a doll of her own, even if she ends up being just as much of a tomboy as her mom. 

I made the doll using the Waldorf style and created my own pattern. I'm super happy with how she turned out. I'm still deciding if I want to make her cheeks a little rosy. Thoughts?

Also she obviously needs clothes, but when I sat down to make her something I got completely overwhelmed. It has been so long since I've sewn clothes I feel like I don't even know where to start. It's like riding a bike though, right? I just need to do it.

 Clothes or not, Audrey seems to be quite smitten. She already has given her plenty of hugs and kisses.

Please ignore the blurriness, it was the best I could do.
I'll post a tutorial on how I made her soon.

Update: Here is part I, part II, and part III of the tutorial. Don't be scared by the three part tutorial, it is quite simple.
