Meet my newest Garden Party Girl doll, Suzi Jenkins. Suzi is a pediatrician who speaks five languages. She is married to a software engineer named Grant. Together they are restoring a Victorian cottage in the country. The house has extensive acreage with formal gardens and a pretty stable where they board their Arabian horses, Gray and Peony. Along with home renovation, Suzi and Grant love to go antiquing. Suzi collects blue and white china, an obsession that began when she inherited her grandmother's set of Blue Willow china.
Suzi is made from a mix of new cotton and muslin fabrics with ribbon details. She is 23" long, 13" sitting height (59 cm, 33 cm) and stuffed with hypoallergenic Polyfil.
Her multi-color patterned cotton dress has a coral fabric belt with a navy blue grosgrain bow. Her shoes match her dress and have navy blue grosgrain ties. Suzi's knickers are aqua and white floral fabric. Her dress, shoes and knickers are sewn securely to her body.
Suzi wears a removable salmon pink felt coat and matching folded felt hat decorated with a green and white ribbon, a navy bow and a pink embroidered flower. Her hair is salmon pink acrylic/rayon yarn sewn securely into a flattering bob. She has a hand-embroidered face featuring sea blue eyes and a pink heart shaped mouth.
Suzi keeps several cats at her clinic to comfort and distract children coming in for a checkup. The pink felt kitten, above, is named Rosy. (Downloadable felt kitty pattern from DelilahIris on Etsy.)
Suzi and Grant just finished painting the kitchen shelves French blue to show off Suzi's china collection. Suzi has endless ideas about how to update and add on to their country house. She can't wait until they both retire so they can live in the country full time.
Grant is more interested in the garden and stables than the house interior. He spends a lot of time online looking at specialty garden catalogs. He plans to install a pear orchard this summer at the end of the kitchen garden.
Suzi is available in my shop, should you desire a colorful doll companion to share your renovation dreams with.
Have a great week!
