Twin Vintage Dolls

These vintage beauties caught my eye a while back.
They were both at the same antique shop
and one wore the gown (although dirty and needing mending)
and the other had a not so pretty outfit.

The first thing I did was to make them undergarments
from vintage lace

At a flea market shop I found a blouse
that was very large and faded but had lovely beaded sleeves.
~ Ta-Da! ~
The elastic end went around the wrists....
I took a seam to make it smaller and hemmed the other end.
T W I N S!!!

From a small fur collar I made two stoles
~ Playing dress up is fun when you have a twin ~

Lovely twins they are. How very smart of you to repurpose the sleeves into the twins dresses. Playing dress up is always the best fun...
