Z is killing it in this dress! It looks so nice with her face mold, her hair style and her little beauty mark, the dress makes her look elegant, but also fun and ready to dance the day away! I really love this round, it’s a hard choice but I’m backing Z all the way! Sorry Nanea, better luck next time!

Thank you for hosting these giveaways, we know it takes a lot of money to do this. I think Z looks better in this due to her snow-like complexion. Dark colors looks better on her because of that. Although I have a few dolls already I am entering because I really love Z, she looks a lot like me but i cannot afford to buy her.

First—a big thank you to Jane—not just for this particular doll and clothes, but for your long history of from when you first began and the astounding growth you’ve earned. You’ve become one of the greats, you know. So many have been blessed by you and your wonderful organization, so many children will grow up with memories of their time with the dolls, the clothes, and the bonding with their mothers, grandmothers, and friends. Been wanting to say this for a long time now.
Second, I chose Nanea as the favorite, but as always, both are lovely.
Third. God Bless You.

While I think the dress looks beautiful on both dolls, I think with Nanea’s hair being down and her slightly darker complexion it looks just a tad bit sweeter on her. Thsanks for all the great patterns! HUGS!

Thank you, Laura G., for your beautiful dress. To my eye, there is a certain formality in the lines of the design such that pigtails seem out of keeping with its tone. Nanea’s soft curls counterbalance the formality and are therefore preferable.
