Recently I saw an outfit for sale on eBay for Effner Little Darling size dolls (i.e. bigger than our ten inchers) made by a talented seamstress, using great fabric - a design of multiple "borders", one being a line of very colorful Matryoshka dolls. I eagerly started to hunt for the same fabric but could only find a matching design of all-over, larger dolls. So I got a fat quarter of that design, scanned it, cut-and-pasted the dolls in a line, shrunk it and printed on computer fabric. Then used (only!) one new fabric (the rose stripe) and 3 stash fabrics (I'm always proud of myself when I use stash fabric instead of buying MORE!) to create what I hope is somewhat evocative of a stereotype RushAnn * folk outfit. I hope you enjoy seeing little Anya Stella as much as I enjoyed creating her outfit!!! (By the way, while trying to find a believable RushAnn * version of the name "Ann Estelle", I came across the fact that the baby Princess Estelle of Sweden is already a duchess! And of Östergötland, no less! [Not that I have any idea where Östergötland is, but I can look that up too, can't I?]) R.
