Dolls! Ideal Crissy Gets a Maxi Dress Too!


This is my poor little Ideal Crissy doll, who has had her base hair trimmed at some stage by a previous owner.  I still think she is great.  The 70's were a back to nature movement for some people, so I have used a folksy patchwork print fabric for her maxi dress.


I think her tail has been trimmed slightly at some stage as it is not level.



Happy with her new dress.
 Here is Brandi and Crissy in their maxi dresses.  I have one more maxi dress to make for another Crissy who has the wavy base hair.  Hers will be red.  When that is done, I will be making another shirt for myself.

The two fabrics are perfect for the retro look, they look very fashionable together! My Crissy's shortest hair part is a bit shorter on one side than the other too, I guess a lot of Crissy dolls have had hair cuts from enthusiastic little hairdressers :-). On your pictures the dollies look so pretty!

Thankyou Nymphaea, I had a lot of fun picking out these fabrics from my fabric stash. I'm glad you think they look retro as that was the loik I was trying to achieve. They are very photogenic dollies don't you think? I am so glad I saw your post about Crissy on your blog and found out about these dollies.

Your Brandi and Crissy look so pretty in their new dresses. You've really captured the flavor of the early 70's. I know because I was a child then, playing with my own Crissy and Velvet. You've done a beautiful job restoring them. Congrats on your award! Nymphaea chose well.

Thankyou Raine, I really enjoyed giving them a makeover. And I can't believe I got the award! Great to hear from you again, hope you are enjoying life after studying.

Her hair really doesn't look bad at all--like maybe it's a new kind of hair style! And the maxi dresses are great. They are lucky girls to have you sewing for them.
