This image shows a Lemon Meringue doll from the vintage Strawberry Shortcake collection wearing a handmade dress. The photo of the doll is overlaid on a turquoise cloth background with the words "free pattern" boldly expressed in the side margin. The bodice of the dress is bright yellow, like Lemon Meringue's curly yellow hair. It's a felt bodice, so it has a certain fluffy texture to it. The lower half of the dress--the skirt part--is made of multicolored cotton fabric. This fabric is decorated with little lines formed by aligned letter exes, in the colors blue, yellow, red, green, orange, and black on a white cotton background color. The doll stands with chubby cheeks and sparkling eyes, looking straight at the camera in anticipation.
