The inspiration to do this doll came from a notebook I brought from Brazil. the cover has a lot of pretty Japanese little girls. I developed the pattern by myself for the body and clothes. I did the same coat ( Oh boy, I would be nobody without the translator from Babel Translations) for my daughter and for the doll, I just minimized the size to fit my Japanese baby.
The shoes are embroidered and the dress is a left over from a dress I did for my 5 year old daughter.
I am Brazilian, 46 years old living in the States for 13 years, married with the love of my life. I have 2 daughter; one 22 and the other one 5 ups...a sister-in-law living with us, a moody fat cat,and an adorable dog.
