The first girl is Marlee, she is a Zwergnase Junior Marlene and is approx 19 inches tall. She is all vinyl and made in Germany. She has handpainted eyes and very unusual, but endearing (to me!) features. Her hair is lovely, very thick and wavy and a gorgeous red colour. The first two photos are of her in her default outfit which is far too warm, being velvet, for the hot weather here.
Here she is in her new summer dress, made from beige linen and striped socks. She is still wearing her heavy black boots....they really are her 'trademark'!!
Next to get a new outfit is Skye. Skye is a Classic Kidz Luisa by Gotz and is all vinyl with rooted silky blond hair and inset acrylic eyes. She is 48cm tall and is the biggest of all my vinyl dolls. She also has extra joints in her legs and elbows, allowing her to do a number of extra poses. I made her new dress from knit fabric and it fits her perfectly. I will have to now try making it with woven cotton and hope that the fit will still be good, as knit can be very 'forgiving'!!! Skye only got a dress, she didn't need socks as she prefers to go barefoot!
