Years ago, when I started my obsession about sewing for Gene, I was searching the internet and I came across a set of paper dolls on eBay.
I believe this is a Debora Paget paper doll.
I fell instantly in love with the green dot coat ensemble. I wanted to make it so bad!
Later, I discovered another doll designer had made the same outfit in green and white. I was kinda bummed, but then I saw this picture.

I decided I would make it too. It took me a while to find the green dot, and I ended up using two different dots, but I love how it turned out.
Here is Madra with the other dot.
I used 17 buttons to make each outfit. I may have wiped out one online store’s stock twice to make all of them.
The umbrella is made with a kabob skewer and a bead painted white.
This ensemble is sold out.
