China Doll pattern, which is available on Ravelry. The original pattern makes a doll about 14-15 inches tall when worked with sport/dk yarn and 3mm needles. I wanted a doll slightly smaller, so I knit her with 2.75mm needles, took out an increase row in the torso, shortened her arms a legs proportionately, and also made her head in the round in one color, so I could add a wig. Anna Celeste turned out 11 3/4 inches tall, with a 5 1/2 inch waist and hips/bust 7 inches.
This pattern is great! The resulting doll is an amazing reproduction of the antique china dolls, and becomes a wonderful canvas to create period costumes. Anna Celeste is wearing a 1850's inspired walking suit, with blouse, belted skirt, and Zouave jacket. All are separates and removable.

In addition to the walking costume, she also has a simple side-to-side camisole and pantaloons:

I would like to make Anna Celeste a trousseau, placed in a keepsake box. Maybe she is about to go to Europe, and if so, she will need some traveling companions too.
