Re: Dressing

Here are the two dolls I love doing quite often, she is
Horseman doll tiny babe, or grump.
She is only 6" full bisk and I have modernised her
by making larger eyes than normal to give her that
look. I think shes gorgeous and she's sitting on my
Creative sewing machine waiting to be dressed and
for some hair on her pate.
She is such a sweet doll I'll be putting up some pics of her
as soon as she is done! Hmmmmmnnn just thinking of
how I will dress her and the rest while she sits there and
ponders on how she will be dressed.

Setting Up

These pics show that I am starting to dress these little girls ready for my display. They are groups of antique
Reproductions all bisk, or porcelain bodies. Only some have painted heads and bonnets, but I have to make wigs for a few the ones at the left hand are Millet Mein Leibling, and Sunflower with an ornate pram that I shall put in a miniature. But I thought I would start with smaller dolls and do them up in a theme.

You will notice the little Sunflower has already a crochetted outfit on a dress, coat, pantaloons and a
beret hat. Her shoes and socks are painted.

The Mein Leibling doll has shoes and socks already made and a hat to protect her hair so when I am dressing her the hair won't pull out.

The french doll in the top section at the end is A9T
Desire I was working on her a long time ago and have
decided to proceed and finish her off! More pics as I progress on with them.
