A 1956 American Character Toni Doll

I found this doll in a thrift store (of course!)
She still has her Vintage American Character Wool Coat.
 Sadly she had no other clothes or shoes.
You can see the coat in image #5

Her face and hair are in pretty good condition.
She is dirty and looks a little faded.

 She had some dirt here.

 Hair was messy and musty.

 Her stamp on the middle of her back.

 I gave her a baking soda bath.

 I found more dirt on her arm.

 Washed her hair with wig shampoo.

 Fresh and clean.

Hair looks brighter.

First thing I made her some lingerie.

Then I made a Tartan dress with wool hat.

 Here is her Camel Coat.

Coat and Hat.

 And here she is in a blue satin evening gown and wrap.

Another great addition to my collection!
