Dylan & Olivia....Two Redheads!

Thank you for all the comments that helped me to decide on which would be Dylan's (Little Cosmos Doll Robin) wig.  I have chosen the red one as I think both the colour and the style suit her.  The wispy tendrils of hair around her face give her a sweet and child-like appearance, which I love!

So here she is today in her dungarees by TTYA, enjoying a bit of early evening shade.





I'm really delighted with this little sweetie!

Also this week I made a simple summer dress for another doll, but the bodice was too tight.  The benefit of having many different dolls is that I was able to give it to another one of my little cuties, my Olivia Kish who is slimmer than the doll it was intended for.  The cute fabric was a gift from my lovely friend Sue in the UK.  I've got quite a bit left over so will probably make another dress from the same fabric for Dylan or maybe for Bastian when she arrives :)



Well that's me done for the night, I've had too many late nights and early mornings recently.....time for bed!

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Big hugs Sharon xxx

    1. Thank you Julie! It's a nice wig, very messy because it's made from synthetic mohair, but I like messy...!! xxx

  2. I see that Dylan has made herself right at home. I am glad you chose the red wig. I like it very much for her.
    Olivia is a cutie. I am just getting into Kish Dolls. I just bought one, Runa. I got her on ebay. She was a doll from one of the United Federation of Doll Club (UFDC) conventions. She was dressed as the character from the Princess and the Pea.
    Olivia's dress is so cute. She wears it well.
    Your Iplehouse BID Bordy is a favorite of mine. I have Elin.

    1. She really has Dorothy, it didn't take long, did it!
      I also really like Olivia, I have two Kish dolls, one is Olivia and the other is an old limited edition jointed one but I'm going to sell her soon as I really only want Olivia!
      I would love to see your girl, she sounds interesting.
      I'm glad you like Bordy, she is one of my favourites too. I used to have Elin, she was beautiful but I sold her because I usually have to sell to buy.....LOL

  3. The red wig is a great choice suits her really well , she looks really cute in her dungarees.
    That is a big plus in having so many dolls of differing sizes and similar heights, save a dress that not right for the intended doll still being used by another.
    Lovely fabric from your friend Sue and I love Olivia's yellow shoes with match in so well, I think she was meant to have this dress. ;) xxx

    1. Thanks Dee, I love these dungarees, they're so well made. I have a Blythe size pair too...I've had them ages, but fortunately, they never grow out of them! LOL
      I always knew there was a reason for having lots of dolls :)

  6. Such pretty girls and my second favourite wig. :)
    Beautiful dress and I know the feeling of making something for one doll and it ends up on another one. Just because some trouble measuring, from my part. :D But gladly there is always someone else among the dolls that gladly take over the clothes. :)
    Enjoy your weekend! Hugs!

    1. Thank you very much Niina. Yes there is a purpose to having too many different dolls, isn't there! Now I know that, I can answer any critics who say I have too many dolls ;)
      In my case it was that I forgot to add seam allowances LOL....
      Have a great week!

  7. Oh wow, you picked the wig that I picked! I promise I did not peek. 😊. I really like Robin’s overalls and your Olivia’s dress is very pretty. Robins expressions are priceless. I really like her. 😊 xxx

    1. LOL I believe you Ginger :) I loved the wig on her, it just suited her little worried face, those wispy bits were the decider for me I think! It's funny because I never gave a thought to her being a redhead. I do think she'd benefit from some brown eyes though. :)
