The image shows a Lammily Photographer doll dressed in a red New Year's Eve party skirt and sleeveless "sweater". The "sweater" is made of felt and has darts in the front. It looks super easy to sew! The skirt has a layer of red cotton skirt and an over-layer of glittery-red tulle skirting. The doll wears a red glitter top hat embellished with a glittery green pine sprig. She stands in a snowy diorama with pine trees in the distance behind her. Snow is falling. The watermark says, "ChellyWood.com FREE printable patterns and tutorials."
