Princess Irene

Pattern cover sheet $5.00 Visit Store Button

Princess Irene is the princess in George McDonald's book The Princess and the Goblin.

Irene wears a peasant dress with a leafy design on the skirt. The skirt design is worked in shadow embroidery. Instructions for a ring and necklace are included in the pattern. The doll requires purchased wig, shoes, and socks.

The pattern has been revised slightly since its magazine publication. It is formatted differently and it no longer includes a gown pattern. Irene is about 15 inches tall and can share clothes with the Madam Alexander 14 inch dolls.

This pattern is for people with intermediate sewing and dollmaking skills. It has fewer illustrations than most of my patterns and does not include a bonus sheet.
