Redressing an old doll

LiddybuffJune 17, 2014

I just finished making a new outfit for this older doll. The one that was one her was in shreds. I hope the lady I made it for will be pleased with it. I had to make my own pattern.

It's lovely. That is how I got started collecting dolls. My husband wanted to garage sale and I had nothing of interest to look for so I started buying misc dolls that needed care. I advanced to a very serious doll collection.

Thank you Emma, I collected porcelain dolls for years but never really had a good place to display them. I then decided to begin collecting porcelain figurines. Now I have a rather large collection in a smaller display cabinet. I still love making dolls and redressing them like this one. If you have seen some of my other posts I have been working on a large amount of Barbie and Ken clothing. Unless my customer adds more to their order I will be changing course onto something new. I've had the urge to go back to my jewelry making for a change of pace. Time will tell. I think we all know how the creative moods are.

I think jewelry making would be a lot of fun. I really have fun with my costume jewelry collection and get lots of positive comments about them. The jewelry pictured below is made by a local artist. $12.50 each. The white one worn with a dark color picks up on the color below it. Even a guy in a store mentioned how nice it was.

I could never do such small clothes like Barbie and Ken.

These necklaces are very nice. I enjoy doing bead weaving and anything rather intricate for some reason. I am posting some I have made in the past.

Emma, Here is one more bezeled pendant I made. These take a while and you really have to concentrate but they aren't as hard as you think.

That would take a lot of patience. They are nice especially the smaller. My taste is more simple, like the ones in my photo. For example a single petal knock out rose, I think the simplicity of it makes it beautiful, most people like double petaled or flashier jewelry.

Emma, I understand what you mean about taste. That's why I make so many different styles. You never know just what will be the seller. I do tend to make things that I would also wear just in case it doesn't sell.
