Instructables
Picture of Crochet White Kitten Doll :
These are instructions for an adorable kitty with a seperate dress. She was based on a character from an old old tale, the matchstick girl. I hope you enjoy this simple tutorial!

The dress is removable, but I highly suggest you sew the neckline of the dress to the body's opening to prevent the dress from slipping. The pattern were inspired by japanese craftmenship.

Note, this kitty lacks a tail but I'm sure your creativity can easily give her one ;)
