Madeline reverse pattern

I made my first Madelline doll pattern base from Brooke Rabideau's Maddy doll design.
Just like the Maddy doll,pattern for Madelline was made from top to toe,and arms are made by crocheting into the body.

I got messages from people having a hard time making Madelline's arms since she was tiny,and others prefer making dolls starting from bottom up.
So i decided to make a pattern for Madelline that is work from toe to head,with her arms made seperate and attaching it by joining as you go.
