This sweet doll's name is Orianna.
She wants to be a pop star. Orianna wears beaded sandals and a tutti frutti curly mane of hair. She likes to sing in the shower and has many hidden talents. Her button joints give her plenty of mobility (I wonder if I put buttons on my own elbows and knees, if I would have more energy ?

If you're just starting out doll making and want to take it easy, this doll is for you. The pattern covers all the main parts of doll making, and and clever ways to design beautiful clothing that looks like it took hours to make. Gee, a personal tailor? Now that’s the life of a pop star!

You’ll learn to needle sculpt and paint a face with great detail and confidence! (plastic surgery and make – up? NAH)

And so much more….
