My first attempt at an outfit for my old doll. And it turned out UGLY! (the outfit, not the doll). But - I learned some things, and I’m starting another one
When I was about 10, I’d asked for a “bridal doll” for Christmas, and that’s how she was dressed.
My Mom kept a few of my old dolls packed away for me for decades, and I only unpacked them a few years ago. They’re the reason I started knitting. I don’t know if she was dressed as a bride when my Mom bought her or not. I’m sure her petticoat is original, but the dress had obviously been shortened - and, her body shape is more of a child than an adult. So, impossible to tell now, and that, plus her “vintage” appearance and her breakable composition make it hard to know what would look nice on her.
Anyway, my new FO is too ugly to post, but just if anybody’s interested in seeing her, here’s the doll, in her original petticoat and the wedding dress.
