An Introduction...

Welcome to my new blogspot...and to start, a little about my journey here...

I have a background in costume design and I have been making dolls for many years. My recent creations have been cloth dolls inspired by antique dolls and my family history (another of my favourite pastimes). I also love creating anything with fabric and I'm enjoying experimenting with different styles and designing unique items.

In this blog I will share doll info, tips and tricks that I have learnt over the years and also pics and even a few patterns, so please check back often to see what's new....

Pretty in Pink

This lovely reproduction china head looks really pretty in her new pink flower print cotton dress. I usually take the simple approach as I find really fancy dresses too overpowering on this style of head. I didn't use a pattern for this one as it's a simple empire line dress with full sleeves and a pintucked skirt for a little extra detail (the pintucks are good for helping the skirt to keep it's shape too).
I've actually managed to finish quite a few dolls now so I'm going to put some on Etsy and Ebay as I've run out of display space...again!
