Dolls on My Worktable

I like buying the 'basket case dolls'... mainly as gives me license to do what I want and the cost of the dolls are affordable.
These are cleaned up and eyes reset, I bought mohair wigs on eBay and all the dolls..

Now they are waiting to be dressed.. I have boxes of vintage trims, laces and fabrics to hopefully give them period looking dresses.
Will use this very old fragile cotton dress as a pattern to make a new dress..

This small girl is waiting for a wig I just tied on a swag of mohair for picture.
