This Old Doll's Boutique
Fashions by Ms Donnie at Petite Modiste

At the moment, This Old Doll doesn't have any dresses for sale however,
my friend Donnie at Petite Modiste has been making some wonderful clothes for our vintage dolls.
At the right is one of her latest creations. Shown below are her duplications of original dresses Miss Revlon. She also makes fabulous hats because we know a laday of the 50s would never leave the house before 5:00 PM without her hat!

All of her work is made to order and Miss Revlon and the fashion dolls are only a small part of the dolls she sews for. She also duplicates the Alexander, Arranbee, and American Character gowns and outfits of the 40s, 50s and 60s, Mary Hoyer, Terri Lee, Marybell (Kelly, Polyanna), Cissy just to name a few.

While her site is temporarily down, you can write to her at and she'll be happy to email photos of dresses she's made.
Her site should be back up soon and then you will be able to click here to see more from this tallented seamstress!
