Doll Repair and Doll Restoration

I have a life long passion for antique and vintage dolls. Working full time doing doll repair and restoration is a dream I have had for a long time, and I am now offering this service. Doll repair is what I do for broken dolls, while doll restoration is what I do for dolls that need to be restored to their original beauty. I can repair and restore your precious dolls to their former beauty with knowledgeable expertise in museum quality restoration. I am also a professional seamstress with 50 years sewing experience, and I love to do period costuming. Send me an email with pictures and a description of your doll and I will give you a free quick quote for doll repair and doll restoration.

Mignonette Patterns
In 1878, "La Poupee Modele" began to print patterns for the small all bisque dolls and called them Mignonnettes. The original patterns are difficult to use and don't always fit together, but I have reworked the patterns so they fit well. "La Poupee Modele" made both paper patterns and printed fabric sheets. The printed fabric sheets are so much fun and so easy to use.
Effanbee Skippy Patterns
The Effanbee Skippy doll is so much fun to dress. I have two patterns ready for him now, the Army Skippy and the Aviator Skippy.
1889 French Frock,
Hat, and Lingerie

This beautiful pattern will fit an all bisque doll from 7" - 8" tall. The pattern includes corset/waist, bloomers, full slip, dress, and hat. The directions are detailed and include many pictures.


The Effanbee Candy Kid is one of my favorite dolls. I have available for you exact copies of his leather gloves, Champ outfit and oilcloth shoes. Two Pleat Dress for Patsy Doll Family
