Leyla is hands down my favorite GoML in both doll and character. Her book was always my favorite of the series. I've never read another youth historical fiction book about Turkey. The story is fascinating and Leyla is a strong character.
I bought an incomplete Leyla on eBay because I thought it would be fun to have one for play as well as display. I do not have her complete yet, but will post pictures when I do. Even incomplete, Leyla is a stunning doll.
Love the slippers!
My Leyla is missing her kaftan, but her outfit underneath is still quite nice. I love the material used for the trousers. She has a very sweet face and her braided hair is gorgeous, especially the four braids adorned with pearls.
