That’s how I feel after the fit of madness inspiration that hit me last week. I suddenly had to make a doll. With a summer wardrobe! And it had to be NOW!!! dammit now!!!!

And I did.

Here is Crystal, so named because of her (crystal-) clear eyes.

I have concocted a rather elaborate back story for Crystal, but I doubt I’ll ever be brave enough to post it on the web.  Let’s just say it involves mad scientists and evil assistants.

But for now Crystal is living a Barbie Doll-esque lifestyle.  Changing outfits and looking pretty, despite having too much hair.

I made the following articles of clothing for her:

A.  A bikini – from pattern


B.  A pair of shorts – from pattern

crystal - shorts

C. A top / A skirt (it can be worn both ways)

D.  A yellow baby-doll type t-shirt

E. A graphic tee

Unless a clothing item says “from pattern” I designed it.  It was a lot of crochet,  a lot of design and an all encompassing need to own this particular item.  I’m very relieved that I’m finished and I’m sure I will be much more enthusiastic about her in the future, right now though?  I need a break.

    Love, love, love the cat. If looks could kill… Don’t leave adorable Crystal or her stunning wardrobe unattended. (Love Denizmum’s patterns too, cute with attitude).
