Sierra the Summer Doll (Darling Dolls Series)

Meet Sierra the Summer Doll!  Sierra is the newest member of Sweet Softies' Darling Dolls Collection.

She's a cheery English girl wearing a sage-green dress with a school-girl collar, sun hat, and stockings.  Her design was inspired by the casual 20th-century aesthetic.

Sierra has a pet puppy dog named Peanut, who happens to be shaped like a little peanut!  This cute pup accompanies her wherever she goes, and loves sitting snugly inside Sierra's basket.

This pattern is easily customized using different yarn colors and added embellishments, such as buttons, lace, appliques, and more!  You can style Sierra's hair, put buttons on her dress, attach a ribbon bow to her hat, or add a cute applique to her basket.  The possibilities are as far as your creativity wishes to take you!

Helpful photo references and a detailed hair tutorial are also provided in this written pattern.  You will be guided through each of the doll's parts, including her accessories (hat, basket, puppy dog).

Add this adorable, 20th century English belle to your multicultural collection of amigurumi crochet female dolls from around the world!
