so, another 3 dolls good to go.

Design a friend doll, in cotton top, shorts,socks and tote bag.

A  24" tall soft bodied doll, this  one was in a bad way!, her hair was stuck up with everything you could think of with a bit of elastic wrapped round. I took her head off, took her stuffing out and gave her a good bath, followed by a good shampoo, the hair was so bad I decided to let my hairdresser have a go when she came last week! she styled it as best she could, and then I hot brushed it. It turned out ok as you can see by the pic.

I dressed her in just dungarees

third doll is an Our Generation, dressed in Xmas outfit carrying her stocking.

Well done Kate, I know the hair on these dolls aren't great but it's awful to see the way wee girls look after these expensive dolls! Some wee girls will love them x

thank you. I must admit I think the Our Generation/Design a Friend dolls are way overpriced, their original clothing that I've taken off them, are very poorly made and barely fit, especially their underwear! the patterns I use are for those 18"dolls ,the dress bodices are lined and hand stitched in place. their hair is quite good to manage, despite what their site says, you can use a shampoo on their hair, but use a metal comb, but DONT get their soft bodies wet, the material tends to stain,their heads are only held on with a cable tie! theres hundreds of accessories for the these dolls,which can clock up a good amount of cash. I hope your G.Daughter enjoys and looks after her doll. I wish there had been these dolls when I was a child (mine were all pot/bakelite lol) take care now K.
