Today I’m going to share some photos of another of my older dolls. This one was not a childhood doll but one that came to my collection in the last few years. Most of my non fashion dolls tend to be from the 1960s but there are a couple of older ones from the 1950s and a few more modern ones. This one was made by the Evergreen Company in Hong Kong and she is about 18″ tall and rather a slim build. This is how she looked when I got her. I liked her red hair but although it was all there and still had a lot of curl it never looked quite right to me. It was in rather odd looking sausage curls.
A few weeks ago I decided to see if I could do anything with it so I combed out all the tangles and then washed and conditioned it. After that I restyled it. I have no idea how she originally looked but as some of her hair was longer at the back I thought that she might have had it tied back at one time. Here she is after her hair had dried.
And this is how it looks at the back. I must find her a nice ribbon.
The dress is not a great fit as it is meant for a chubbier doll. I don’t have any patterns for a tall slim doll so I think I’m probably going to have to improvise with a knitting or sewing pattern to make it fit her. I like her in this shade of blue but green would look nice too.
