MORE Vintage doll clothes!

I have so many new doll outfits to share today!
I have been on a vintage doll clothes roll lately and have 
made some great finds.
Let me start with the blue gingham dress 
(bottom right) from my last post.
I never got around to it before so I want to show you now.
I was not sure who it would work for, but now I know!

It fits Cricket and even has that 1970's
granny dress look.

I added some pink ribbon touches, 
just to add some interest.

I found this new lot of doll clothes last week.
I was hoping one of these might be a Cissy or Elise sized dress.
When I opened the package I saw at once that 3 of the dresses
were sized for an 18" doll.

This salmon dress is very pretty on Molly.

The color is so pretty.

This dress was not pictured with the rest and I missed it in the ad.
So I was surprised to see it in the package!

 I think this little dress makes a very sweet sundress.

It matches Emma's eyes.

This dress is taffeta with pink, blue and grey stripes.
I knew Grace would look lovely in it.

All 3 together make a pretty picture.

This next dress I hoped would fit Cissy,
but it's too big!

I debated fitting it down, but it's not really
very flattering on her.

I believe this coat is also for a larger fashion doll.
I think this coat and the larger dress I will resale.

This next dress is PERFECT!!

Is this not adorable!?!
Vintage 1950's and it fits Elise perfectly.

Elise borrowed Cissy's bandeau.
The blue brings out her eyes.

A view of the back.

The skirt has a Roman Chariot pattern.
You can't tell from the picture but there is silver
glitter touches in the fabric.

I just love this new dress for Elise!

Vintage Doll Clothes find!

I am always on the lookout for vintage doll clothes.
I especially look for items that might suit dolls I already have.

This Taffeta Ballerina dress caught my eye for my newest 14" doll.

 This fit my 14" doll perfectly!

I added a bit of bling.  It felt like it needed something.

Next I came across this satin pajama set.
I have been looking for some PJs for Shirley Temple.
They were perfect! I was hoping they would fit!

They fit and I love them!

I could not believe my luck winning this lot of clothes.
I was looking for clothes to fit a 15" doll.
What doll you ask?!?

This 15" Madame Alexander Elise doll!
I couldn't believe it, there were only minutes left on
her auction and NO ONE had bid!

Sadly her gold Ballet Costume makes her look drab.
I was hoping some of  the clothes in this lot would be
an improvement for her.

Here she is in one of the outfits.
This is a skirt and blouse made of satin and taffeta.
Unfortunately it is really for a thicker waisted doll.
I have the skirt pinned in back so it would fit.

I  made this little hat for this outfit.
I also made her some new jewelry.

This next outfit was also really too big.
I added a bow tie to pull it together.

I am undecided whether to resize these outfits or resell them?

This polka dot dress really caught my eye.
I was hoping it would fit Shirley

This dress was a little too big as well, but
with a ribbon tie added it's not too noticeable.

I decided that this  pinafore would make a 
great kitchen apron for Molly.


I knew this red dress was made for a Crissy doll.

This little lavender dress is maybe my favorite from 
this lot of clothes. I believe it is one of the older pieces.
It is a sheer Dotted Swiss that looks like it was made for
a Patsy Joan type doll.

Sadly there is a stain on the collar that just won't come out.

BUT! I still love it.
I added this little crochet hat and the pink bow.

I didn't get a picture of all these clothes.
But what I did find out is that I was not really happy with 
the clothes for Elise.
I decided I would just have to make an outfit myself!!

Here it is!

I also made her bandeau and jewelry.

Is it just me? or does she look much happier!!

Two New Dolls

 I recently found two new dolls on eBay.
This first little girl is 8.5" tall. 

She is an artist made composition doll.
She looks like a Patsyette doll, but she's not.

 Do you ever see a doll and just fall in love?
 Well, that's what happened to me.

Here she is on her little bed holding a 3" Ann I made.

The second doll is a Madame Alexander 14" doll.
 The seller thought she might be a Wendy Bride doll, but wasn't sure.

Here she is right out of the box.

She needs a little TLC.
 I put her dress and veil in to soak.

After that I gave her a borrowed dress
and worked over her hair.
 The netting is a good way to re-train the doll's hair to lay flat.

Here she is!

She still needs a little more work on her hair,
but so improved!

This little dress looks so good on her.

Here she is in another borrowed dress.

Very sweet!

 Here they are together.

OH! Wait!

You'll want to see Wendy in her brides dress, right?

Here she is!
Sadly, the netting of this dress is quite fragile, 
so probably won't put it on very often.

 Very pretty!
