I think she already looks like an exquisite doll! The background although interesting seems to me to be a distraction, especially the parts over the arm, unless those are supposed to represent reflections off glass

The only suggestions I would have for more of a doll look are:
one or two Screen layers for the Iris of the eyes, sharpen the Irises, Burn Shadows on the pupils to darken,
Clean the whites of the eyes on another layer
soften nostril holes to look more doll like
fix teeth

Sample is below, let me know if you want me to remove it

Hi, grannysdc, thanks for your comments.

Yes, I agree that the background is a bit distracting. Thought i want to create some lightening objects for the image. But, the arrangement is not good.

I like the eyes you made very much. They looks like jewellry eyes and very nice. Softening her nostril holes and fixing the teeth make her looks like a doll and more perfect too. But, (just my own preference) maybe i still won't soften the nostril holes too much, as i want her to look like a "lively" doll. (<--- i think i'm a bit odd in this point.. ha..)

Thanks for your suggestions. ^^...
