Dolls

This isn’t my page (I don’t work for her, we’re not sorority sisters, etc.) but I found it when I was looking for something else and it’s so awesome I have to share.  I sew for dolls only occasionally, and I’m sort of burned out on seeing stuff for 18-inch “toddler-type” dolls (short, chubby, bodies), but . . . this stuff is just “wow”!  Besides, I’m sure many of our retro seamstresses have children who have dolls, or have dolls themselves.

I recognize a lot of the 1940′s designs from real patterns.  She has things from a lot of different decades, too, not just the “pioneer” styles that seem to be most popular for dolls this size.

 

(I do have  a 1950′s-style dirndl skirt on the sewing table but it’s not fit to be posted yet.  Give me a few more days.  More if I decide I really, truly, cannot wear it without the perfect white sleeveless blouse.)
