The new girls, that is.
These four are the first of a new batch of vintage Liberty fabric dolls, made using some of the wonderful stash I was sent by Sarah Campbell the other day…
My vintage button and trim stashes have been out for perusal too, as you can probably see.
Sometimes a bit of trim makes all the difference, doesn’t it?
This little lady is, I think, my favourite of the four. She is prepared for all eventualities, being supplied with a clean lace hankie in her pocket.
I have wardrobe envy. I have been searching for some form of pinafore dress (not too short, nor too flouncy or fancy) for myself for ages, without success.
And floral tights. Where are all the floral tights this year? Have they emigrated for the winter?
My friend thinks she should go into business making them to fit grown-ups, because you can’t buy nice winter tights for love nor money unless you’re under five years old – we’ve both tried.
Anyway, I might not be able to wear a pinafore dress and floral tights, but my doll can. (Lucky girl.)
My second favourite of the Liberty girls quartet is boho girl below…
Swathed in flowers, she may just be a little bit louche, I think, and given to reclining on a day bed displaying her tinkling laugh and sipping champagne.
Currently she is dressed for a luncheon engagement, but I have a feeling she may spend quite a bit of her time clad only in her peignoir.
Whereas this girl is clearly just a tomboy in a party frock…
Tomorrow I’m going to make a start on dressing a couple of bunny boys.
I’m thinking breeches, waistcoats.
And just possibly, a cravat. ♥
P.S. You can now order custom dolls from my Etsy shop here.
