This is Lil’ Cupcake, a chibi fashion doll. She is three pieces – head, arm and body. I called her Cupcake because she is a pancake style doll but better, like a cupcake. 🙂
She has such cute lil ears!
She has thumbs, and her knees,elbows and hips are stitched across so she is floppy. You don’t have to do that though – you could make her so she is stiff legged. There is an optional stiff bent arm included in the pattern. Her shoulders are jointed with an internal button joint, like a poppet. I think this makes her form more appealing, and easier to design clothing for.
Speaking of clothing – she might be the same size as YoSD sized ball joint dolls, the chunky kind, not the slim. Unfortunately, I do not have a chunky YoSD… will have to download a pattern or two to see the size difference.
This is her w/o clothes.
I am also working on a boy body and heads with different types of ears!
