Jess Brown inspired dolls

Ok---second attempt at a simple doll. I love the Jess Brown dolls but finding it very difficult to go that simple and I have to hand it to her---she is 10/10 for simplicity, authenticity, style. Anyway plugging away and suppose the best I can hope for is my own unique salute to Jess Brown
My husband said get rid of the nose but cant do it---was able to take it down a little but hmmm   she needed a nose.  :)

New doll in the making

I really like Jess Browns dolls--they are so simple and uncomplicated. The price for one of her gorgeous dolls though is steep-really really steep and -much as I would love to buy one my budget is set aside for supplies, fabric etc.
 I  love a challenge and decided yesterday to make one--not the same as I have my own idea,s, likes etc. This is one I drew up, cut out sewed up, embroidered and now just waiting to be dressed.

I did discover in my travels about the net that Jess Brown has a book coming out in July.
The Making of  a Rag Doll. You can preorder on Amazon.
