Miniature clothes for miniature vintage dolls. The little story about 4 miniature vintage dolls.
My lovely customer, Mary, is an amazingly kind lady. In doing so, I would call her original and unexpected. She calls buying dolls “salvation”. It seems that she chooses dolls for her collection according to a script. The unusual pieces she shows and asks them to wear make it clear that the script is simple. It’s love at first sight! I’ve been knitting for dolls for almost 5 years and should get used to requests and orders, but every letter from Marie makes me smile.
This is where I have to remind you of this post? This was the beginning of our friendship with Marie.
This time, Mary sent me this picture. A couple of micro-dolls with funny faces. The letter set out a touching story about the purchase. She, as usual, could not “save” the kids.
I didn’t find any information on the babies, but I can assume they’re from the ’60s.
Supposedly they were meant for a doll’s house. I didn’t find the exact information. The order had a simple request to tie two suits and small blankets. The colors were pink and blue.
And here’s what I did. This order was not difficult. Such costumes are ordered quite often.
And the other day, Mary sent me pictures. How much I love these moments, photos of clients. I see what happened and what had to be done a little differently. But the happiness of customers makes me happier too.
For her collection, Mary bought two porcelain dolls from the image.
For them, I knitted two sets of clothes similar in style to the miniature sets.
And now the puppet company is back together!
Thank you for reading my story to the end. These and other outfits for miniature dolls can be found in the Creativhook shop at Etsy.
How do collectors choose dolls for their collections? They can be dolls of a certain master or puppet company. Some collectors prefer porcelain beauties from the past Victorian century or plastic dolls from our century.
Perhaps the preference in the collection is determined from the very first doll and the collector seeks to find such dolls. They remind him of his childhood or one of the stories told by his grandmother.
The size of the dolls may also be an idea for a collection. If there isn’t much room for exposition in the house, and the desire to have many miniature dolls, the size is of great importance. And perhaps the idea of the collection can be the beauty of doll faces.
But there are collectors for whom collecting dolls are part of the profession. I am such a collector. It is very important to have as many different dolls in the collection as possible when creating doll clothes. In a previous article, I wrote about vintage German Plasticbaby dolls.
