Well, another great day thrifting!
I found two dolls in one day, not bad.
The first was this adorable Patsy Joan reproduction.
She is in pristine condition.
How sweet is she?
All I did for her was replace the elastic in her pantaloons.
But poor chatty Cathy!
I was happy to see she was wearing her original dress.
She was pretty faded and VERY dirty.
Almost all the color was gone from her face.
She had these black marks on her legs.
And someone used sharpie to paint her nails.
Hair was pretty bad too.
More black marks on her torso.
She has a crack in her torso and some strange
scrape marks on her shoulder and...
...on her thigh.
So I washed her up and put curlers in her hair.
We're getting there.
At this point I washed and pressed her clothes.
Her sleeves needed new elastic as well as her panties.
Then I repainted her face.
Before and after!
I am happy with the improvements.
She definitely looks happier.
What a great day!
