New girl Gracie is joining our family

A new  and  a very special girl will be joining our family of models very soon - a bjd doll Gracie by Kaye Wiggs.  

Gracie is a 17 inch doll with ball joined body, that is slimmer and looks  taller than the 18 inch bodies of American Girl dolls. The clothes and the patterns will not fit and are not interchangeable. 

But, and that is very strange,  my Animator's clothes do fit Gracie ( though they are a bit too roomy) and  both dolls do share the same footwear. 

So all shoes that I am selling for Animators will fit 17 inch Gracie ( and other 17-18 inch dolls by Kaye Wiggs). The only difference in their feet is that Wiggs girls do not have any arch to speak of, so stacking up a couple of inserts  cut out from the regular craft felt are needed to "lift up" the feet.  That also means that Wiggs dolls can wear Animators shoes and boots with stockings and tights very well and without  adding  the felt inserts. 

The work on the first pattern for Gracie has already began and here are a couple of working pictures of what's coming. 

Gracie by Kaye Wiggs has such a sweet innocent face that it will be pleasure designing for her.

Great tutorial on weaving in ends! Many thanks. Just finished a scarf with way too many ends…good practice and good timing : )
Very clear instructions.
