My Farm Girl - Darlene

Thought I'd get a couple of photos of Darlene out in the sunshine! I think I may take her to the community farm with me so I can take a shot or two of her in a 'farm' setting.

Evolution of a Farm Girl doll

I'm a big fan of MaryJane's Farm magazines and all the wonderful energy that is put into re-establishing rural living as a viable and necessary implement to our future!

With that said and in response to my farm girl friend, Molly, I am sharing the evolutionary process of  my latest doll. While I was finishing her last night, my daughter told me that she spoke to her and said her name is Darlene. And so it is!
If you read my earlier post about the patterns Millie gave me a while back then you will appreciate that since the pattern for my farm girl doll was designed by my friend Joey, I had to transform a coat pattern to make a dress. The apron was an easy task using a drawing from a fabulous book I purchased for a screaming deal at JoAnn's called Vintage Notions by Amy Barickman. 

So, without further ado, I'd like to introduce My Farm Girl, Darlene!
