Completed Tilda doll with green clothing

I love the way these green trousers worked! I traced the shape around the doll, then cut out with a generous seam allowance. I am beginning to see how this doll making and dressing works.
This is the Tilda doll with shorter arms and legs than were indicated in the original pattern.
