I thought I have finished with buying Gotz dolls, I have even trimmed my Gotz collection quite a bit, but I couldn’t be more wrong as it has turned out! Let’s start from the fact, that I didn’t like this face mold at first – when it appeared in 2012. And for 2 whole years I wasn’t tempted by it – at all! Until… until I saw some photographs by My Doll Best Friend that is. It took me time to realize I really need this girl! And so, here she is… Laura belongs to the Classic Kidz Collection. Dolls in this collection are more expensive, and at first it is not quite obvious why, because the faces are all the same as in the Happy Kidz Collection (Emily/Katie and the new Clara/Sophie molds). You might think that buying Clara (say, in a ballet outfit or in a pink coat) …read the rest
This dress was a custom order for one of my very special customers. And the very first one I made for sale. It is almost identical to my first Tudor gown, but I have changed the bead embroidery around the neckline and also added a pendant to the pearl necklace. …read the rest
Finally it has happened! A new A Girl for All Time doll – Lydia – has just been released! To the utter excitement of us, the fans of these amazing dolls, and of many girls across the world. For those, who haven’t discovered these gorgeous dolls yet, I will remind …read the rest
In a view of our unexpected international move soon, I need to downsize my doll collection. Well, at least, a bit. So, I’ve decided to part with the following dolls – hard as it is. If you are interested in any of them, please let me know. PayPal payments only. …read the rest
Another photographer in my doll family is Mattie. Do you remember how carefully she was packing her camera for this holiday? She is wearing a top and also a handbag knitted by my mum. I am having major difficulty writing articles for the blog at the moment – there is …read the rest
I love photographing these two dolls together! They are so beautiful and photogenic! So, here they are in the recent outfits which I have already shown separately. Now it’s time to simply enjoy these two beauties.
My Emma (Leeann doll from Affordable Designs) is a real cutie. I think she looks very pretty in this lavender dress I’ve made for Iplehouse BID dolls. Just the right colour for her! And yes, she and Iplehouse little ones can wear each other’s clothes and shoes – they are …read the rest
And yet another outfit for Gemma. It started with the cardigan that my mum had knitted. Then I made another pair of trousers and a blouse to match. The blouse is lined and closes at the back with 4 snaps. The trousers are a simple dressy style without pockets. They …read the rest
The first dress I’ve made for Maru and Friends dolls. It is my own pattern and design – and, I guess, rather familiar to all by now! The dress is made from high quality cotton and is lined with white batiste. It closes at the back with a zip. The white sash …read the rest
The second 3-tier skirt I’ve made for Joanna out of the remaining fabric. I love mixing royal blue and yellow together! It is such a pity that this royal blue polka-dot fabric is totally sold out everywhere. I wish I could buy more of it! The skirt has an elastic in …read the rest
I couldn’t resist these little cuties. They are Our Generation mini dolls. I’ve never particularly liked large OG dolls, but the little ones are pretty. They are sold in the US in Target shops. These dolls are the same size as American Girl mini dolls, they also have a soft …read the rest
When I had my own doll shop here in Singapore a few years ago, I was quite shocked to realize how many girls in our British international school were obsessed with American Girl dolls!! I was planning to concentrate on 3 types of dolls then – Gotz, Carpatina, Kidz’n’Cats, but …read the rest
I think it is pretty obvious by now that my doll interests are not limited on one particular type of dolls. I like lots of different dolls (with a few exceptions). Mostly my interests sway between vinyl playdolls and BJDs with some Tonner dolls in-between. However, recently, I took a …read the rest
Introducing my last Kidz’n’Cats girl – Galina from Collection 2011. That is, I really hope I will not buy anymore Kidz dolls because I truly believe I have enough! But Galina was somewhat special and a must-have! I didn’t like her at all when she first came out – because …read the rest
My Gwendolen and Caroline – two Hannahs but they are so different!
Another of my very first outfits which I made a few years ago and which I didn’t manage to photograph properly before. Modeled by Caroline (Gotz doll Hannah Horse Riding).
I am very busy at the moment (today being a public holiday here, etc.), so just a quick post with a couple of photos of my Gemma and Joanna together.
I can almost bet that chances are you haven’t seen these dolls before. Or you might have seen some photos somewhere but didn’t even know who they are. These dolls are relative newcomers to the doll market but they are gaining popularity. So, let me introduce a Bonnie & Pearl …read the rest
Another recent outfit for Maru and friends dolls. This time it’s a cardigan which was also knitted by my mum. She used thin cotton yarn and 1.5 mm knitting needles. The cardigan has a ribbon embroidery. The trousers are just a raw test version (that is the first trousers I …read the rest
