Outfit

Hearts and Flowers Dress

A gift from a great gal!!

Repairs
This gal was in good condition, but her face needed some care.She was washed, face and full body depill (as her body was in greta condition with only a little pilling). He rhair was washed, conditioned, detangled, her part was rewoven and her fringe neatened. Her face sagging was pushed up to her temples and she dried in a warm spot to help it stay that way. Her hair was also straightened to remove the frizzy ends. Her make up was all over the place, so I evened that out too. Gorgeous!!

Outfit

Pink Flare Repro

Repairs
This girl is quite lovely. She was packed full of surprises though.

Firstly she had a soak to remove some stubborn dirt, her hair had a perfect part, so it just needed a deep condition and detangle. Surprise surprise, to my horror, she had NO FACTORY CURL left in her hair!!! OMG!!!! I set her hair really tight overnight and although it isn't perfect, it is shiny and soft now. Her face is super smooth and bright. Lovely!!!!

Outfit

Floral Overall Set

Made by Laurence (France)

Repairs
This little darling needs some serious TLC. She has a slight dent in her face which had accentuated facial sagging, her nose was sideways, she has bad pilling, neck loose and her hair was WILD. Well she started with a bath and although she soaked for ages, she isn't perfect as I would gather she's a well loved baby. Her face cleaned up well and the face sagging gone with some minor stretch up at the temple. Her face is not pill free though. Her hair was HORRENDOUS and was the frizzies crimp I've handled. To be honest, she had no crimp definition, so I set her hair in plaits to bring back texture and crimp. It's not conventional to do this but her hair had no hope. Her fringe is slightly crooked for some weird reason and her hair is a shade shorter, not sure if it was ever cut, but she is so yummy now and her hair feels good. Her make up was also very uneven and faded, so I evened it out with a little pencil.

Aussie Strawberry Sidepart Ringlet

Violet Eyes, Pink & Peach

SN #2118HR

Outfit

Original Pink Party Dress

Repairs
She was pretty dirt. Would guess she had never had a bath (which is good). She had pilling and needed her part neatened, ringlets re defined and make up touched up. She had very soft hair to start with, which makes her ringlets very soft. She is a truly beautiful girl. I just love this one.

Aussie Strawberry Crimp

Brown Eyes, Pink & Grey

SN #2118HR

Outfit

Repro Flare style dress

Repairs
This little girl came for a Wash, Depill, part neaten and Make Up. When she was in the water, most of her eyeshadow came off, so required a bit more afterwards.

Her nose was also a bit crooked. The grey eyeshadow looks amazing with the dreamy brown eyes.

Lovely Peach Day Dress

Repairs
Another amazing baby I can temporarily have in my home!! sigh! Oh, my, she has come up so well. She even surprised me!!!

She had a much needed wash, depill, hair condition and detangle, and her make up evened out. I gently pulled back her face skin when wet and dried her in a warm spot. A great non surgical face life!! She is a real stunner. Karin, I hope you are happy with her!!!

Repro Pink Romper

Repairs
Stunning face. She has gorgeous hair, but not a lot of factory curl left. I imagine these curls will drop out a little with time, but she will look very sweet with soft natural curls anyway. Her expression is so shy and innocent. Her part was rewoven also.

Repro Pinny

Repairs
I restored this doll a while ago and forgot to add her photo here to the site. I can't really remember what I did to her, but fro the brfore photo's I can see she has horrible pilling and knotty hair. She would have been washed, hair condition and detangle, face depill, maybe part rewoven and ringlets restored Her face was a little dented, like some dolls are, but this added a lot to her personality.

Original White Ducky Dress

Repairs
Pilling was this dolly's biggest hurdle. She has wonderful hair, so getting the pilling under control was key. After a good soak, he pilling did smooth out quite well. Much better than I expected. She had her centre part rewoven, her curly fringe neatened (sje's an 88 girl). The wrinkle above her nose is far less obvious. Gorgeous.

Repairs
This girl needed a fair bit of TLC.

She was washed, body and face depill, hair condition and detangle, part rewoven, fringe neatened and hidden plugs brought forward, ringlets had quite a bit of work done to them to bring back the curl (without using hair sprays etc), slight make up touch up.
