FO: topsy-turvy Cinderella doll

I made this doll for a friend's five-year-old daughter. The sad, forelorn Cinderella turns upside down into the happy, dressy Cinderella. The idea that a woman cannot be happy without a man is thus perpetuated :)

"And I have roses trimming my dress...they all match, but they had to be knitted and sewn on one by freakin one."

Please forgive me my moment of insanity -- I'm tired and have a migraine.

The pattern is from Jean Greenhowe's Christmas Special (the 28-page one). The yarn is Caron Simply Soft, Bernat Satin, and bits of other acrylics. She really did not take all that long to knit, but making her up took forever -- about 6-7 hours per side. It was fun, though. It helps that I like the finishing process.

I might knit her a bag to hold with the dressy dress, but she's just about all done...
